We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
