Small business owners have many responsibilities to their companies. They are often the manager, accountant, sales person, and head marketer. Most times they are even the IT technician as well. This means that most times they do not have time to set up their own Wi-Fi network, much less set up a guest network and make custom security settings. Not only is time normally a factor but most systems make it so you have to have an advanced degree to make the product work correctly. The Meraki line from Cisco changes all of this however.
The Meraki system makes it extremely easy to manage your network. It is all managed from a simple to use online portal that you can access from anywhere. This portal allows you to change which sites are blocked, if your Wi-Fi requires a password, and many other settings. This also enables you to setup a guest network for the customers of your business. The Meraki will also collect data based on the usage of the devices on this network. This is extremely useful for retail locations where people may be looking up products online before they buy from you. Meraki allows you to change all of your security settings through this portal as well. This ranges from blocking certain websites and device types, to blocking usage at certain times, to even seeing which types of devices are trying to connect to your network. This allows you to rest easy knowing that your data will always be safe.
The Meraki system not only makes it easy for you to setup your small business’s network but it also makes it easy to manage that network, set up guest networks, and apply security settings to those networks.
