Improved client tracking - beta testers needed!

Hi everyone,

 

The dashboard team is building out a new and improved client tracking method, and we're looking for early access testers!

 

So what's new? Well, there are currently two tracking methods on the MX - track by MAC and track by IP address. Each comes with specific use cases. Tracking by MAC works across your entire Meraki stack, but doesn't have visibility through your layer 3 devices, such as a routing switch, which means downstream traffic usage is attributed to that switch. This can lead to some skewed results on the clients and summary reports page. Track by IP will identify clients over layer 3, but also requires that your MX is split into its own dashboard network and IP addresses aren't always unique.

 

This new tracking method takes the best of both worlds, leveraging the power of dashboard to uniquely track clients across layer 3 in a single combined network. If you:

 

1. Use fullstack layer 3 Meraki networks
2. Have a lab or branch network with MX and MS L3 switch(es)
3. Want to be the first to see how this can streamline your dashboard administration and improve client traffic reporting.

fill out the form below!

 

Thanks,
Patrick

Everyone who has signed up thus far should have received an email! Client tracking mode can be always be changed back, though changing that setting does reset traffic data.
