Kind of a big deal

Re: Benefits of Meraki Switches

Meraki partners have access to collateral on the partner portal.

 

There's some competitive info on it.

But tbh the biggest selling point is the dashboard. Which isn't quantifiable in feature tables. After you play around in the dashboard for a day you'll probably be convinced. Same goes for customers.

Specifically against the Pro Curve I do not have, though a Meraki rep should be able to furnish you with some helpful points.

 

There is this key overview of the benefits of the switch Key Switch Features

 

Do you have access to the Meraki Partners section?

Thanks Nick, this helps, I had a reseller partner looking for a vs HP doc. to show his end user. I recommended he would be better served speaking with his Meraki rep.

Just one additional thought, Kevin;  the real benefits of Meraki switching (indeed any Meraki product) can't properly be seen in a document - you and others involved in the choosing really need to experience them in the context of the Meraki Dashboard.  Maybe try getting onto a Meraki Webinar:    https://meraki.cisco.com/webinars , or get hold of your local Meraki sales team, for a Dashboard demo?   https://meraki.cisco.com/form/contact

Re: Benefits of Meraki Switches

Thank you GreenMan and the other contributors for your responses and passionate defence of the Dashboard. I have seen the it in action in our ATSC Centre at Tech Data Canada.  Our Meraki Master Mahmoud is equally passionate and ready to defend the Meraki Dashboard against all comers. He is usually my go to person, but I am glad to know I have a Plan B. It was the customer requesting the vs Aruba doc. Cheers !
