Centrally Managed from the Cloud
Cisco Meraki provides powerful and intuitive centralized management via the cloud, while eliminating the cost and complexity of traditional on-site wireless controllers. The Cisco Meraki cloud seamlessly manages campus-wide WiFi deployments and distributed multi-site networks with zero-touch access point provisioning, network-wide visibility and control, cloud-based RF optimization, seamless firmware updates and more. With an intuitive browser-based user interface, Meraki WLANs configure in minutes — not days or weeks — without training or dedicated staff.
Bring Your Own Device
Cisco Meraki is the first and only solution that provides everything you need for a secure, reliable, headache-free BYOD network — 100% integrated, without added cost or complexity.
Use integrated Layer 7 client fingerprinting to identify devices and measure their impact. Automatically apply device-specific policies to iOS devices, Androids, PCs, and more. Quickly and easily enable BYOD while maintaining a secure environment, for example by using NAC to require PCs to have antivirus software.
Control Applications, Users, and Devices
Cisco Meraki is the only wireless LAN to include Layer 7 fingerprinting and application QoS. Identify hundreds of applications, from business apps to BitTorrent and YouTube. Prioritize critical apps like VoIP, and limit or block wasteful bandwidth consumption such as P2P file sharing.
Apply policies by group or device type, automatically assigning VLAN tags, traffic shaping rules, bandwidth limits, and firewall policies to iPads and other device types. User fingerprinting with Google-like search allows administrators to easily identify and control individual users, iPads, Androids, and other devices.
Control Clients with Mobile Device Management and a Client Aware Firewall
Pushes policies and applications to the devices on your network, enforcing security best practices, installing updates, and troubleshooting client issues. Configure rich policies with a device-aware firewall, assigning bandwidth controls, VLANs, and firewall rules specifically to iPads, Androids, and other mobile clients. Meraki provides the tools for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) networks and mobility-centric organizations.
Layer 7 Application and Client Visibility
Cisco Meraki MS Switches are the industry's only switches featuring integrated Layer 7 application and client fingerprinting and analysis. Hundreds of applications are automatically identified and reported, from business apps to BitTorrent and YouTube, so administrators can see where resources are spent.
Device fingerprinting with Google-like search allows administrators to easily find and identify individual users, iPads, Androids, and other devices. Search for devices across the entire network right from the Meraki dashboard, no matter which switch a device connects to.
