Meraki's Cloud-based Wireless Management Services
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.

In Meraki's remote services solution, only control data rather than application or web browsing traffic is transferred to and from the cloud. The control data is sent via an efficient out-of-band management tunnel that uses about 1 kbps of bandwidth per managed device. This imposes an imperceptible impact on AP performance while eliminating the capital cost and management overhead of installing and maintaining wireless controller hardware within the network core. Also, this architecture allows clients to continue using their Wi-Fi networks even in the event their connection to the Meraki cloud is interrupted.

Meraki's cloud services offer unified management and analytics via a single dashboard

Meraki's cloud-based management solution features advanced traffic analysis and shaping capability that gives network managers insight into user behavior, making it possible to tune your Wi-Fi ecosystem to optimize productivity. Meraki's traffic analytics engine allows the Meraki management dashboard to shed light on all network layers so administrators can visualize the aggregated results of statistical analysis organized by network, SSID, or user. Flow-by-flow deep-packet inspection (DPI) of network traffic in real time provides administrators with the data they need to devise and implement granular application firewall and traffic rules. To improve productivity or encourage customer engagement, Meraki's traffic shaping engine lets you define informed policies for QoS and prioritization according to users and network groups. Administrators can specify and enforce restrictive policies like access control and application firewalling or throttling, or prioritize bandwidth availability for various classes of business-critical applications.

Additional features of Meraki access points that take advantage of Meraki's cloud management include the Air Marshal wireless intrusion detection and prevention system (WIDS/WIPS) and CMX Location Analytics for real-time analytics on the presence of mobile Wi-Fi devices such as smartphones, laptops, and tablets. Meraki access points with Air Marshal activated perform real-time scanning across channels on 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands and react to detected threats according to remediation policies defined via a centralized management tool. A cloud-based heuristics engine allows Air Marshall to detect, send alerts, and suggest solutions for the latest threats, which can include rogue SSIDs, AP spoofs, packet floods, and attempts to hack your Wi-Fi environment.

Cisco Meraki CMX Location Analytics utilizes the Bluetooth radio integrated into every Meraki access point to derive presence data from the probe requests beaconing of WiFi-enabled client devices such as smartphones and tablets. The data collected by Meraki's WiFi APs is synchronized with the Cisco Meraki cloud and displayed graphically in the management dashboard to help organizations understand patterns of foot traffic near different Wi-Fi hot spots. Analysis can include traffic volume by time of day, new clients vs. repeat clients, and length of stay. The statistics organized by CMX can be used by any organization to optimize staffing or drive employee BYOD policies. Retailers can use CMX to compare customer trends before and after sales campaigns to understand and improve the impact of various marketing initiatives on customer engagement. CMX also enables assisted navigation and supports location-aware mobile applications.
