Great that you can configure all devices via the same access and just change the menus
Pros and Cons
  • "You can access a single pane of glass and configure all the devices via the same access."
  • "Doesn't enable a local configuration without internet access."

What is our primary use case?

I am a customer of Meraki. 

What is most valuable?

A good feature of Meraki is that you can access a single pane of glass and you can configure all the devices via the same access and just change the menus.

What needs improvement?

This product doesn't enable a local configuration without internet access. If you compare this product to Fortinet the granularity of blocks that you can do related to the firewall and reports that you can deliver and control about blocking all access on Fortinet is more than Meraki. And when you talk about number of WANs that you can put on the device, Meraki can have only two WANs and when you have Fortinet you can have at least six sources of WAN.

What other advice do I have?

I rate this solution a 10 out of 10.
