Meraki's cloud services provide extensive reporting and analytics via a web-accessible control console

Traffic sent from Meraki access points to the Meraki service cloud is limited to control information and does not include application data or web browsing traffic. WiFi access point control data is transmitted efficiently over an out-of-band management tunnel that requires only around 1 kbps of bandwidth per managed access point. This avoids AP performance degradation while at the same time saving businesses the cost and management hassle of installing and operating wireless controller hardware within the network core.
