Meraki's Cloud-based Wireless Management Solution
Meraki access points include the CPU, memory and architectural resources needed to perform packet processing, QoS, layer 3-7 security, encryption and other functions at the network edge while at the same time supporting Meraki's cloud management infrastructure. Meraki's cloud-hosted management provides centralized control over a virtually unlimited number of sites and devices via a single web-accessible dashboard with features that include layer 7 device and application visibility, performance and connection monitoring and alerts, extensive reporting, live diagnostics for remote troubleshooting, automatic updates, and enterprise-class security.

Every Meraki access point can connect over the Internet to the datacenters that constitute Meraki's cloud using a highly compressed out-of-band management tunnel that typically requires less than 1 kbps overhead per device, resulting in no perceptible drop in performance. Because no network data such as browsing or internal applications pass through the Meraki cloud, end-user functionally continues even if the cloud connection is lost.

Meraki's cloud-based management eliminates the need for wireless controllers or overlay systems

A key feature of Meraki's cloud management solution is advanced traffic analysis and shaping technology that allows admins to understand user behavior and take advantage of this insight to optimize network value. Meraki's traffic analytics engine enables the Meraki dashboard to provide visibility across all network layers so that admins can see the consolidated results of statistical analysis in a single view on a per-network, per-SSID, or per-user basis. Line-rate, flow-by-flow deep-packet inspection (DPI) of network traffic gives admins the information they need to create and apply application firewall and traffic rules for specified groups of users.

To maximize worker productivity or enhance customer engagement, Meraki's traffic shaping engine lets administrators create time and context-dependent policies for QoS and prioritization based on user and network groups. Admins can define and enforce restrictive policies such as application firewalling or throttling and can also prioritize bandwidth availability for specified application classes. Meraki's application-layer analysis is performed at the network edge, eliminating the cost and complexity of deploying and managing traditional wireless controllers within the network core.

Other cloud-managed features supported by all Meraki Wi-Fi access points include Meraki's Air Marshal wireless intrusion detection system (WIDS) and wireless intrusion prevention system (WIPS) for neutralizing wireless threats plus CMX Location Analytics for realtime analytics on the presence of Wi-Fi handhelds like smartphones, notebooks, and tablets. With Air Marshal activated, a dedicated security radio in the Meraki AP runs security scans on the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. Air Marshal responds to perceived threats based on specified policies. A cloud-based heuristics engine allows Air Marshall to detect security threats, transmit alarms, and propose remediation. Threats can include rogue SSIDs, access point spoofs, packet floods, and hack attacks on your Wi-Fi network. As an example of threat remediation, Air Marshal can automatically isolate access points spoofing your network's SSID, preventing your users from connecting to a malicious rogue device.

Meraki's CMX Location Analytics system collects user presence data derived from the probe requests beaconing of WiFi-enabled devices including smart phones, tablets, and laptops. CMX uses this information to create graphic analysis of foot traffic by time of day, new vs. repeat visitors, and dwell time. This data can help organizations that utilize WiFi hotspots to optimize staffing, storefront design, or employee and BYOD policies.
