About a week ago, one of my fellow ITNA classmates talked to me about Cisco Meraki. According to him, they have a free trial of their service, which includes $3000+ of routing and switching equipment and 3 years of their Meraki service. After looking into it further, I discovered that the equipment includes modern, up-to-date APs routers, and switches, all of which are managed via cloud-based services, and it includes 3 years of their premium Meraki management service. In my opinion, this would be very useful for small businesses and agencies, but it would be under-performing for larger corporations. According to various customers, they have very mixed reviews. On one end of the spectrum, they glorify Meraki for its simple configuration, easy-to-use UI/UX, fast updates, and its ease of use. On the other end, they criticize Meraki heavily for lack of complex mobility, application management, field service, and complex use. Furthermore, they do not like internal components being configured externally, and the APs have low ranges. Some reviews claimed these lack of features exist to prevent Meraki from competing with Cisco Enterprise. I understand both the appeals and criticisms of Cisco Meraki, but given how mixed the opinions are on the topic, I was wanting to know your opinions on Cisco Meraki. Below I have linked the page to the Meraki free trial.
