The dashboard was the main reason we selected Cisco Meraki. You have to try it to truly appreciate its beautiful simplicity!

The previous wireless was provided by a mixture of managed and
unmanaged access points from several vendors at each of the schools
With the rapidly growing number of clients that needed to be served, management of the access points was complicated and not scalable
No visibility into what the network was being used for or by whom
Why Cisco Meraki
Intuitive centralised management of Cisco Meraki access points & switches across multiple locations via the web-based dashboard
Massively scalable cloud architecture
Layer-7 application and client visibility across wired and wireless networks
Built-in identity-based firewall automatically assigns firewall and traffic shaping rules to enforce the right policies for each class of users
