Speed Up Your WiFi With Cisco Meraki

Let’s look at some of the ways it can help you with your business’s Wi-Fi speed.
An issue we observe amongst many businesses we support is that they run into bandwidth compatibility issues with their current access points. Many Wi-Fi access points are compatible with either 2.4GHz or 5GHz bandwidths. But there are Cisco Meraki access points available that can support both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz client-service radios.
Because of this, businesses can optimise their connections in terms of further coverage or greater speed.
Cisco Meraki access points enable innovative network management through the provision of thorough network insights. These insights include detailed analytics, easy access control and setting of policies for application usage.
Through this unmatched visibility, you can get live data on who is connected to your Wi-Fi. This allows you to closely monitor and optimise your business’s Wi-Fi usage, eradicating issues that cause your connections to lag.
Simplicity and efficiency are Meraki’s prominent goals throughout the development processes of their products. Their centralised management dashboard makes staying on top of your Wi-Fi function effortless.
Even the largest of Wi-Fi networks spread over several locations can be seamlessly managed through the dashboard. What’s more, you can do this on any device you like, from wherever you are!
Below is an example of the optimised user experience provided by the Cisco Meraki dashboard.
