I totally agree with the ask for turning off IDS/IPS Meraki as a brand has made this part of their vision for a while, and seeing this feature set going to an option I don't see coming anytime soon. I've been to a good amount of Meraki Live events and this topic is brought up at each event. With the response of "Well we are aware of the ask but not sure if this will happen". As for the speed increase comment. Many homes and SMBs are still around 100Mbps or less. In medium to larger cities that have FIOS or cables companies willing to offer 300 Mbps+ at a reasonable rate this could be a limiting factor and one that will quickly growing in the coming years. Finding the right balance between offering the higher speeds at the right price will be tough for Meraki to figure out as a brand as the security features have been the driving force behind the hardware and and software cost. I will make my comment quick on UniFi. In their current state with the USGs still haven't completed the features promised over 5 years ago, the ever changing and at times buggy controller, the shift to UDMs being painful at times, UDM still in development it's a little hard to keep pushing down that path "for me".
