A connected factory in the cloud
Rapid deployment and greater agility.
Meraki meets manufacturing
Meraki products help IT and operation technology (OT) departments come together and address the challenges that modern manufacturers face.
Manage your network from one dashboard
Whether you’re looking to gain greater insight into activities on the factory floor, troubleshoot network issues before they impact production, or prioritize production-critical applications at geographically distributed sites, Meraki lets you manage all of your IT needs from a single dashboard.
Easily mitigate your downtime risks
Count on the Meraki suite of cloud-managed IT solutions — including advanced networking, enterprise-grade security and mobility management, and video surveillance — to reduce costs, increase production throughputs, and mitigate downtime risks.
Manage and deploy with ease
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.
Reduce 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.
“Using the visibility in the Meraki dashboard, we were able to troubleshoot specific machines that we previously didn’t realise were using a lot of bandwidth.”
– Daniel Hodson, Business Excellence Manager
