"The performance is pretty good."
"They're easy to update."
"Console of the dashboard is well integrated."
"It is easy to work with."
"You can connect from the dashboard itself. It is very easy to operate."
"The main features of Meraki MS Switches are integration, high quality, and hardware guarantee."
"The cloud part of Meraki Switches is very good. They also have a good GUI. It's a complete solution. I like the switching and the monitoring part."
"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 have not had any downtime with it. It has been a solid performer that way."
"I think they have very strong routers because they have multiple processors. I like its easy configuration with applications. For example, configuration with Linux, Iptables, and routing protocols."
"We make use of a script that will automatically re-route traffic when connections are slow."
"The pricing is very reasonable. It's not too expensive."
"This equipment is resilient and available at a good price."
"This is a good solution."
"MikroTik Routers and Switches are stable"
"The solution is stable."
"Some people would have some reservations about the yearly subscription. Maybe they could offer an option of having a one-off or perpetual license to let people test it and see how it goes."
"The licensing model needs to be improved."
"It would be good to include the command-line access someday."
"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."
"I would like to add a voice capability to Meraki, to make a call or receive a call."
"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 pain point for our customers is the pricing and it should be reduced to make it more competitive."
"I've had some hardware failure issues on the POE side on several switches across the years. There seems to be a problem with the POE ports of their unit system."
"The solution's website isn't that good. When I go to it, I can't find what I'm looking for. However, if I go to a third party's website, I can easily find the information."
"Better security is always better. If they can continue to improve in this area, that would be ideal."
"It is slow, old and unfriendly."
"Sometimes, when I need to reboot or change software, MikroTik crashes."
"The batch management could be improved."
"The Soft-GRE support needs to be improved."
"Technical support could be better. They don't have good support like Cisco. It can also be more stable and scalable."
"It could be more scalable. Product awareness could also be better. There's a lack of awareness when it comes to MikroTik. People only know about Cisco and others, and they won't rely on MikroTik. This is primarily because of hardware limitations. While this product is good economically, it's unsuitable for high-end projects. In the next release, I want this product to be more compatible."
