We have set up an MG21E as a failover connection for a restaurant. Works very well and fails over fast and none of the issues we had using the USB devices connected directly to the MX.
Our issue is that the MG seems to be using about .13Mbs of data at a fairly constant rate when we are not in a fail over state. With one device this is not a huge issue, but we have a shared data plan and are planning to add them to all of our locations, meaning that data usage will become an issue.
Does anyone know of a way to limit the amount of data usage or better manage data while not being the primary connection?
@RestaurantGuy : The MG21 cellular gateway uses 6 to 8 megabytes or little more a day of data for telemetry on dashboard and connection monitoring when the unit is idle.
Any additional Cisco Meraki devices that are added to the MG21 may increase data usage further. Cisco Meraki products are cloud connected devices that report telemetry into Dashboard for network monitoring purposes.
