"Quality of Service is easy to deploy. The ease of deployment, in general, is valuable. It is easy to do port configuration and VLAN assignments."
"We find value in its ability to enable cloud management and visibility. They are also easy to deploy. It's very convenient because you can see who is accessing, what type of UI system they're using, what applications they're using, the bandwidth, and more."
"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."
"Provides good statistics and it doesn't require teaching command lines."
"The technical support is quite good."
"It is easy to configure and provides complete visibility of the graphic end point."
"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 is cloud management."
"The wiki page that describes the scripting and other features is very good."
"Some of the most valuable features are the simplicity, cost, usability, and power. As a package, it's extremely effective."
"This solution is very similar to the on-premises version making it easy to use for those who know the architect."
"The most valuable feature is that it has better throughput than its competitors."
"There are a lot of features to control permitting or stopping packets in the network."
"The GUI is easy to use."
"The stability of the solution isn't ideal. We've had a lot of problems with the switches. They are unstable and unreliable. We need to reboot them often."
"The licensing model needs to be improved."
"In terms of troubleshooting, if we get more tools there is an issue."
"It can have better security. It needs more security enhancements, and in particular, a zero-trust element. If we could have external and internal users vetted in the same way as a zero-trust network, that will be handy."
"I would like to add a voice capability to Meraki, to make a call or receive a call."
"This is quite an expensive solution."
"Doesn't enable a local configuration without internet access."
"The traffic reporting should be better in Meraki MS Switches. We want to be able to see all the traffic and where it is going. Additionally, detailed device utilization information would be very helpful for the security personnel."
"Antispam and antivirus features should be included in the future."
"There has to be more development in the OS. It's complex for this switch as compared to others like Cisco. For NetGear and Cisco, it's easy to adapt the VLAN concept but it should be simplified for MikroTik."
"If MikroTik had a marketing team and support team in India then it would be much easier for us to get the product, as well as support."
"The user interface could improve and they should allow a license for IBS."
"Stuff that I'd like to be improved is really just training and documentation because I think the feature set is full. Another improvement I'd suggest is that their new, bigger releases should be a bit more stable."
"Improvements are needed with respect to some of the security, especially for VPN links between vendors other than Cisco."
