What is the Meraki Fullstack?
The term fullstack refers to having network equipment that are all easily managed together, supply analytics, and telemetry data that creates a fuller picture of the network. Meraki was the first to bring the notion of "fullstack" to market, so when you combine Meraki MS, MR, and MX appliances together under Meraki's cloud-based management platform, you have a Meraki Fullstack.
Meraki Dashboard | Centralized Management
At the heart of what differentiates a Meraki Network from their competition is the single-pane of glass interface that allows administrators to view and manage their entire network from one, easy to access, cloud-based application. Administrators can monitor traffic passing through all networks with one click of the "network-wide" button. Review any event logs or packet captures, down to the individual AP or even client device. Using Active Directory with group policy, network policies are automatically applied on a per client or device level. Because the dashboard is a cloud-based application, it is accessible from anywhere at anytime (even mobile!), making configuring alerts, group policies (AD, by device, or by client), MDM (mobile device management) policies, and Layer 7 Netflow (Group wide or by specific user) manageable and streamlined.
Meraki Switches | MS Series
At White Rock, we are always considering connectivity first. The Meraki MS Switches, powered by Cisco, provide the ultimate administrative experience with a combination of scalability, performance, and transparency. Meraki MS Switches also give administrators the freedom of zero-touch provisioning, as all appliances are managed from a web based interface. Other features and benefits include:
· Core Distribution to Client Access Switching
· Physical or virtual stacking for easy management
· Live Network topology mapping (No more Visios!)
· Automated QoS settings
· Port-specific visibility with usage and physical connections
Meraki | MX Security
The Meraki MX Security Platform provides the ultimate administrative experience. The MX Security solution can be remotely deployed with zero-touch cloud provisioning, allowing for network wide deployments with a few clicks. From content filtering on web searches and youtube, to integrations with Google and Bing Safesearch, the MX solution leverages Sourcefire Snort (the same as Cisco ASA series) to provide the ultimate security environment.
· Auto VPN and SD-WAN
· Intrusion detection system (IDS) and Intrusion prevention system (IPS) with Sourcefire Snort
· 250+ security analysts identify threats, creating and applying patches in real time
Meraki Security Cameras
The Meraki architecture allows business owners and administrators to easily add IP devices such as Security Cameras to their network. Since Meraki is a single-pane of glass platform, each camera is built into the same portal with user specific access.
· Video is accessible anytime from anywhere you have Internet
· 128GB of local storage, eliminating a need for a NVR/DVR
· Motion search and night vision capabilities
