Cisco Meraki: Enterprise Class Networking, Without the Outlay
Simplified deployment, easier management, enterprise class quality.
As IT infrastructure people, at one time another, we've had to select and buy networking hardware. The dilemma that used to bug us the most was dealing with the ever present trade-off between cost and future-proofing. On the one hand, we wanted to buy the most robust and advanced kit we could, but on the other, we were asking ourselves how long before it would be obsolete. We also found that the more advanced the product, the greater the expertise needed to operate it.
No networking certifications needed
What began as an area for specialists only, is now accessible to businesses with all levels of IT expertise. With the Cisco Meraki suite of products, you can manage the entire network from anywhere via a secure web portal. Deploying couldn't be simpler either - only the serial number and an Internet connection are necessary to get things going.
Common sense pricing

After a nominal charge for the bare metal, you purchase the right to use it via a subscription. This way, the you control the product life cycle process.
