MX Security Inquiry

Hi Guys,

 

Good Day!

 

I got an opportunity to present Cisco Meraki Security on one of our Partner's End User.

 

There are some inquiries about Meraki's Security Solution:

  • Is it possible to place a Bandwidth Limitation for Groups/VLAN's?
  • In youtube, can Meraki Block the Category? (e.g. Allow Manufacturing Videos but block other kinds of Category)
  • When viewing Sites that has Advertisements, can Meraki Block those Ad's? (It will just show a White Picture and its not click-able)
  • Since Meraki has 10yrs License option, if in case the unit still has 10yrs and its about to approach End of Life. Is there a REFRESH program? (e.g. A Buy-Back program that will have less cost when getting the replacement)

They are also familiar with Meraki's AP.

But they have 1 question in mind and it has to do with MAC ADDRESS Binding per SSID.

 

Is it possible to have a MAC ADDRESS bonded to an SSID that has Traffic shaping? (e.g. MAC addresses of a certain group can only connect to a specific SSID, if they connect to a different SSID they won't have internet access).

 

 

I know this is a long post but I really appreciate any feedback from you guys.

Thanks in advance!

Yes.

No.

 

  • When viewing Sites that has Advertisements, can Meraki Block those Ad's? (It will just show a White Picture and its not click-able)

There is a content category called "Web Advertisements",  I've never used it, but I expect it would block what it says.

 

  • Since Meraki has 10yrs License option, if in case the unit still has 10yrs and its about to approach End of Life. Is there a REFRESH program? (e.g. A Buy-Back program that will have less cost when getting the replacement)

Discount programs come and go.  You should not enter into a 10 year transaction with any expectations.  Seriously though - would you really want a security appliance using 10 year old technology.  I would suggest shorter licences, like 5 years, and replace the device more regularly.
