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. Matrix Networks is taking the notion one step further...

 

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.
