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

Pros
"The ePoE+ is great.""Remote access to the router is a huge time saver.""The solution is less expensive than other options."

More Luxul Switches Pros »

"Setting up a switch can be performed prior to having your hands on the device. Once you purchase a Meraki switch you will get an email from Meraki with a code to add to your dashboard and then you can start setting up your switch so when it arrives it will download its configuration and be all setup.""It is easy to deploy, maintain, and update. It has been trouble-free so far. I am still a Cisco command-line bigot, but the web interface makes it a lot easier for our help desk to interact with a client. When the clients call in and say that they aren't able to connect, it takes the help desk 10 minutes or less to look at everything in the enterprise or location. They can look at the firewall, switches, or access points in the dashboard. That's why I like the dashboard.""The most valuable feature is the ability to orchestrate the network from the cloud.""These switches are not expensive and their configuration is very easy. You can provision them on the dashboard, then you just connect them to everything.""The most valuable feature about Meraki is the console. The second most valuable feature, to me, is the technical support and the infrastructure behind the console.""We are using the MS425 series. We like the ease of use, ease of administration, and central dashboard. Meraki also has fantastic documentation and community. With its central dashboard, we can deploy a generic configuration across hundreds of switches, rather than doing it in the old school way where an individual or a group of engineers would log onto each device via CLI, which takes a long time. So, everything is connected.""Console of the dashboard is well integrated.""With Meraki, there is the advantage that you have dashboard access via the internet and you can work on it from anywhere."

Cons
"The documentation could be improved; it's quite basic.""Documentation and access to it could be greatly improved.""You do need to be an IT person in order to handle the initial setup. An AV person would struggle a bit."

More Luxul Switches Cons »

"Technical support hold times seem to be getting longer.""There should be a focus on the emerging markets to offer better pricing. In India, they are offering it at better pricing for the emerging markets.""The solution does not fit all use cases.""It would be good to include the command-line access someday.""Less flexibility than in some other solutions.""The throughputs, especially the throughput path, can be improved on the core switches. I think they should improve the throughput in the core switches to enable higher throughputs.""Better alerting capabilities are needed because they do not provide enough notification or detail about events.""Mandatory maintenance is an area that needs improvement."

More Meraki MS Switches Cons »

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The price completely depends on the environment. There are no additional fees."

More Luxul Switches Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Meraki is a little bit expensive, but when you compare the pricing with others, Meraki is a good option.""When you compare it to other switches like HP, Juniper, and Ruckus, Meraki MS Switches are cheaper.""It would be better if they had a one-time purchase option instead of a subscription model.""I don't have an issue with the price of this solution.""The pricing is high and it is where we get the most pushback from customers.""Its price is definitely competitive.""The only drawback is the cost — that's what kills them.""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."
