Pricing and Cost Advice

"Its price is definitely competitive.""The yearly maintenance fee is $100 and you can purchase the switches used for about $200 each.""The solution is a bit on the pricey side.""We don't use standard licensing. Most of the time, we use the advanced security model. If there is a drawback to Meraki, it is the cost, but you also have to evaluate it based upon the other factors that you do get. Their support is really good; their hardware is really good. The ease of configuration and deployment is really good, but it is more expensive than most.""This product is quite expensive.""The only drawback is the cost — that's what kills them.""When you compare it to other switches like HP, Juniper, and Ruckus, Meraki MS Switches are cheaper.""They can get the price down for small businesses. The way I bought it, I paid hardly anything, and I got all my licensing with it. The firewall appliance is around $900, and the switches are around $150. This is for the device itself. For licensing, I signed at $70 or something like that for the switch. Technical Support is included in this."
