Why Cisco Meraki?

Countless companies have already discovered the many benefits of the cloud-managed Cisco Meraki network. In particular, the cloud-based network platform is popular among small to medium-sized companies thanks to the following advantages:


  • Cisco Meraki is powerful and reliable: Its WLAN connections are extremely fast, which makes it ideal for digital workplaces and allows for the network experience to be optimized for employees and customers.
  • Cisco Meraki is fully scalable: Any number of locations can be integrated – whether it be a single branch or thousands of offices. The platform therefore grows with companies.
  • Security updates are made available immediately and protect the cloud network around the clock. Companies are therefore subject to fewer security threats and attacks.


Simply put, Cisco Meraki products are fantastic – and as we’ll see below, deserve round-the-clock monitoring.


Why should you monitor Cisco Meraki?



Prevent downtime by quickly spotting problems related to the availability of the Cisco Meraki network. Stop interruptions before they have a chance to arise.

Monitoring and analysis

Monitoring and analysis

Identify bottlenecks by continuously monitoring and analyzing the use of bandwidth. By doing so, you’ll prevent applications and software from running too slowly for customers and employees, and thereby optimize the productivity of your company.

Capacity planning

Capacity planning

A monitoring tool also lets you keep a constant eye on the performance and load of your Cisco Meraki environment. Among other things, this enables you to optimize your capacity planning by expanding (or reducing) your IT infrastructure at just the right time.

PRTG Cisco Meraki sensors at a glance


 i How PRTG defines sensors

In PRTG, “sensors” are the basic monitoring elements. One sensor usually monitors one measured value in your network, e.g. the traffic of a switch port, the CPU load of a server, the free space of a disk drive. On average you need about 5-10 sensors per device or one sensor per switch port.

The 5 advantages of PRTG –
not just for Cisco Meraki monitoring!

As an all-in-one monitoring tool, PRTG eliminates the need for individual monitoring tools from a variety of different manufacturers. PRTG comes with preconfigured Cisco Meraki sensors, allowing for quick and easy integration of your Cisco Meraki infrastructure into your centralized monitoring environment. PRTG takes monitoring to another level:



Monitor your IT infrastructure and the networks of all your locations simultaneously. Multiple network monitoring tools are unnecessary. PRTG is an all-in-one monitoring solution that keeps an eye on everything:


Easy to use

Installing and setting up PRTG is extremely easy and intuitive. Upon installation, the PRTG Auto Discovery feature automatically scans your network to create an overview of all the devices detected in the network. It also creates suitable sensors for each device. With PRTG, your initial monitoring environment is set up in a few short minutes. More advanced setup is also a breeze thanks to 250+ preconfigured sensors.


Easy to understand

PRTG provides you with a constant overview of your monitoring environment. Among other things, it displays your network as a device tree or “sunburst,” generates network topology maps, and lets you create complex, custom dashboards with intuitive colors that indicate problem areas.


Prompt notifications

Thanks to automated alerts, admins no longer have to worry about when and where a problem might occur in the IT infrastructure. PRTG provides for flawless network monitoring and immediately informs admins via email, push notification, SMS, or some other means if an error occurs in the network (e.g., a threshold value is exceeded).


Easy testing

Each license of PRTG includes the full set of monitoring features, no matter how large it is. There's even a freeware edition that gives you 100 sensors completely free. And if you're still not so sure whether PRTG is the tool of your choice, why not try it for free for 30 days?
