It's not just another buzzword. Meraki's founders invented Cloud Networking while working as graduate students at MIT. Meraki is now owned by Cisco and has a complete line of cloud networking products for all sizes of organizations. SAV deploys Cisco Meraki devices to most networks we manage. Meraki devices are easy to deploy and increase the redundancy of the network overall because of their cloud-based architecture. We are often shocked at what we find in network closets during initial assessments - if your organization has neglected your network for years, it's time to consider a secure, modern solution like Meraki.
