Cisco Meraki Switches

Meraki Switches combine the simplicity of the cloud-managed dashboard with power of enterprise-grade hardware to cater to the demands from next-gen wired and wireless networks.

Simple & Powerful

Meraki access and aggregation layer switches power networks of every size. They combine secure, scalable, robust performance with an intuitive management experience that requires no additional training.

Deploy, Manage, and Troubleshoot in minutes

Meraki switches offer zero-touch provisioning and can be configured entirely from a web browser. Pioneering network topology and remote packet capture features simplify troubleshooting, especially on remote locations.

Build High-Performance, Resilient Networks

Meraki switches provide the essentials for building high-performance networks that can help maintain seamless network service. Multigigabit Ethernet squeezes more speed out of existing cabling.

Switches can be physically stacked via dedicated lightning-fast cabling and cross-stack link aggregation used to create a resilient connection to the network core using all available bandwidth. Further strengthen the network with IP gateway redundancy or powerful dynamic routing using OSPF.

CASE STUDY

One of the UK’s major transport and logistics providers approached PAV as they were experiencing ongoing issues with their on-site network. Having served the business well for 10 years, the legacy networking infrastructure was beginning to show its age. This was leading to issues with the performance, reliability and supportability of the entire site’s network.

Meraki Insight

Optimize User Experience, Accelerate IT
Meraki Insight helps IT administrators optimize the end user experience, significantly reducing the time it takes to isolate network or application problems that lie beyond the LAN, and create happy, productive users.

Reliable, fast networks have become ubiquitous, driving innovation, productivity and instant collaboration, supported by the relentless growth of convenient cloud hosted applications. As the use of these apps and services grows, so too does our reliance on every step of the journey, from app server to desktop or mobile device.

Even with a powerful, proven network infrastructure like Cisco Meraki, the end-user experience can only be truly optimized by considering all internal and external factors contributing to the end-user experience. Fast cloud application response times rely not only on a well designed, high performance LAN, but also on the performance of the service provider’s infrastructure, the WAN or Internet, and the remote SaaS (software as a service) application itself.

Meraki Insight has been developed to provide end-to-end visibility into how end-users are experiencing the network by taking a more holistic view of the factors contributing to the end-user’s perception. Busy IT teams benefit from improved insight and a drastic reduction in troubleshooting effort, enabling resources to focus on the true cause of end-user frustration and provide faster, better service. Faster problem resolution gives IT more time to support their organization’s mission priorities.

Meraki Insight requires a collector to gather the data it uses, and the Meraki MX platform can be easily upgraded to function as a collector with the addition of a new Meraki Insight license. As data flows through LAN and WAN interfaces, deep packet inspection provides valuable information at both the Network layer and Application layer, helping IT determine the true root cause with simple visibility into performance at every step.

Each application gets its own Performance Score, providing a quick reference to the quality of the user experience relative to a specific Web Application, based on the thresholds defined by a IT administrator. This Performance Score is calculated based on several definable thresholds, primarily per-flow goodput (true payload data rate) and application response time.

The Meraki dashboard provides rich at-a-glance visibility into how the performance of a specific application is trending over time, enabling IT to more accurately predict where and when challenges are likely to begin impacting the end-user experience.
