Cloud Networking provides centralized management, visibility, and control without the cost and complexity of controller appliances or overlay management software.

Cisco Meraki products are built from the ground up for cloud management, and come out of the box with centralized management, layer 7 device and application visibility, real time web-based diagnostics, monitoring, reporting, and much, much more.

Managing Dashboard Access
Dashboard administration and access can be managed on a per-user basis, so different admins can have individual limitations and account security.
Inventory and Devices
Dashboard's inventory allows administrators to manage many devices at once, regardless of physical location.
Monitoring and Reporting
Dashboard offers industry-leading application visibility and monitoring tools, all designed to better understand and manage network traffic.
The Cisco Meraki licensing platform uses a co-termination model, so administrators only need to manage a single, account-wide expiration date.
Organizations and Networks
Devices in the Meraki Dashboard are contained within Organizations and Networks, making it easy to manage multiple sites at once.
Firmware Upgrades
Cisco Meraki device firmware is managed via the Meraki cloud, allowing the latest upgrades to be scheduled and performed remotely.
Privacy and Security
Information regarding security and privacy compliance across the Cisco Meraki platform.
Templates and Config Sync
Configuration templates and synchronization can be used to easily manage Dashboard configurations across multiple network deployments.
Tools and Troubleshooting
Tips, tricks, and best practices for general networking fundamentals and troubleshooting.
