“Meraki makes it easy for the IT team to understand what they need to do with very minimal training. They don’t need to be experts, which is great for me, because I’m usually busy with other things.”
– Todd Shipway, Director of IT and Robot Communications
Peace of mind
Securing data from your industrial IoT and connected devices is critical. Meraki has an enterprise-grade security solution that also provides natively integrated advanced security informed by the world-renowned Cisco TALOS organization to protect against known and unknown threats. This means you can rest easy knowing your IT infrastructure is secure.
Intuitive web-based dashboard to manage all Meraki devices. Zero-touch provisioning and plug-and-play devices allow sites to go live in days without the need for highly trained network engineers. Lock production devices in single app mode, monitor device battery charge, location, status, etc.
Lower operating costs up to 90%
Troubleshoot network issues real-time with tools such as remote packet capture and cable testing, reducing costs up to 90% compared to traditional technology. PoE/PoE+ options power and monitor edge devices across the site. Apply port schedules to automatically turn off always-on devices when idle to save on site energy.
Minimize waste and deploy on-site
Deploy Meraki security cameras as a sensor to intelligently monitor processes on-site. Industry’s simplest solution to implement — just plug cameras into Ethernet. Find footage of interest in minutes without exporting data. Use footage and built-in analytics to rapidly learn and improve site processes.
Avoid production downtime
