Empowering IT to Deliver Best-In-Class Service and Support

Because software never sleeps, Meraki technology is designed from the outset with future-proof hardware inside, capable of supporting new features which are added over the lifetime of every product. The result is an investment which grows and pays back over time, with powerful features like Location Analytics, Enterprise Mobility Management and developer-friendly APIs.

Focus on the task at hand

Reduce the time it takes to troubleshoot network issues and keep the things running smoothly with a powerful suite of tools that are refreshingly easy to use.

Remote cable tests, live packet capturing and automatic, built-in alerting are just a few of the ways Meraki products reduce overhead and increase IT efficiency.

Everything Under One Roof

Manage a broad and demanding network with a simple, intuitive dashboard that supports real-time collaboration and role-based access control so the entire team can work together to deliver an amazing experience.

Deep visibility and detailed network insights help IT staff and network ambassadors quickly respond to and resolve issues before they ever impact users and productivity.

Go from Reactive to Proactive

Did a switch port or access point just go down? Alerting and logging are all centralized and integrated, eliminating the headache of piecing together disparate solutions.

Manage and monitor the entire campus on-the-go with the Meraki mobile app available on iTunes and Google Play.
Stay Connected

Fast, reliable, and secure network connectivity — from the classroom to the halls of residence

The intuitive, cloud-based dashboard includes features such as advanced network analytics, programmability with APIs, and robust threat prevention, enabling customers to save time, reduce operating costs, and enhance student experiences.

High Density, without the High Maintenance

Meraki access points are designed to deliver superior performance in the highest density wireless environments such as auditoriums and lecture halls — without the bottleneck of hardware controllers.

  • Crowd-proficient WiFi that deploys in minutes
  • Support any student device without compromising network performance or security.
  • Reduce RF interference in congested areas with a dedicated scanning radio that proactively tunes channels and radio power to optimize performance.

Keep students and faculty safe

Meraki makes it easy to protect users, services, and the campus by unifying security and network management across all layers of a deployment. Ensure that students and faculty are always safe — whether in a lecture, dorm, or simply strolling around campus.

  • Protect the network and its users from one intuitive interface: trace connected devices to an access point to a switch port in one fluid motion.
  • Enable threat protection at the flip of a switch and block unwanted software before it ever reaches the network.
  • Thief on campus? MV security cameras with Motion Search make it easier than e ever to retroactively select areas of importance and identify the culprit without ever hitting the fast forward button.
