Rather than integrating products from multiple vendors to achieve these five goals, Costanza was able to satisfy all of them with Meraki’s integrated solution. Costanza deployed 80 Meraki dual-radio access points that employ technologies such as Multi-Ratio Combining (MRC) and Multiple In, Multiple Out Spatial Streams (MIMO) to improve signal coverage, reliability, and performance. “We were seeing strong signal in nooks and crevices that we had previously written off as impenetrable deadspots,” said Costanza. Client reliability improved significantly as well, with a measured decrease in submitted help desk tickets. And when client configuration and related tickets did come in, Meraki’s event logging and “remote hands” troubleshooting tools enabled Costanza’s team to diagnose them easily. Finally, Costanza used Meraki’s Identity Policy Manager (IPM) to provide the required fine-grained policy enforcement.
