Whether an organization is large or small, the demands on the corporate network are increasing. That's because we're working from home more and more, buying more services from the cloud and are using more smart devices. Digitalization offers many great opportunities to work more efficiently and to grow, but the IT budget does not always keep pace. In an increasingly complex IT environment, it seems impossible to guarantee optimal speed, availability and security while saving costs. In this blog you'll read how a (Cisco Powered) Meraki Cloud Managed Network can help you do just that, in a way that suits you.
The pandemic has dramatically shifted the playing field in many organizations. Where previously work was primarily done in the office, it is now primarily done remotely. Now that there is light shining again at the end of the covid tunnel, there is a permanent need to always have access to a well-functioning network. Whether at home, on the road or in the office.
With Meraki, it's easy to quickly roll out new digital workstations. And adding new locations is also quickly accomplished. It doesn't matter if it's one new location across the street, or 250 locations in a faraway foreign country. The network can be wired or wireless, but it always functions the same way everywhere.
Management is easy because Meraki works with a clear dashboard. This gives complete insight into what is happening on the network. Granting access to users and devices is largely automated, based on profiles. This saves a lot of work. New functionalities are also added automatically to existing environments, making Meraki future-proof.
By outsourcing the design and roll-out of infrastructure, there are even more benefits to be gained. Consider:
Security is also less stressful, if only because security updates are applied automatically. Meraki provides a secure environment thanks to support from Cisco security platforms. A reassuring thought at a time when cyber threats are on the rise and we are increasingly dependent on data. SD-WAN, for example, is part of Meraki and offers additional cost saving opportunities by providing alternatives to expensive MPLS lines.
Avit has extensive knowledge and experience in the field of Meraki. As a system integrator with its own research and development team, Avit adds value to services by adapting them to customer needs. For example, the onboarding of new employees on the network is fully automated through a link with the HR system, in which the personnel data is stored.
Avit can also (partially) take over the management and maintenance, if the growth of your organization is so strong that the capacity of your own IT department is no longer sufficient. With the Meraki Cloud Managed Network from Avit you always have an easily manageable network. Easy to scale up and tailored to your specific situation. Because Avit offers support at every step, digitizing becomes a carefree journey.
