Manage your network remotely with Cisco Meraki
As the market leader of cloud-managed IT, Cisco Meraki offers a network solution that is managed entirely in the cloud. This solution allows companies to manage their entire Meraki IT portfolio (e.g., wireless and WLAN access points, switches, and security devices) from one central location via the Internet. Cisco Meraki lets you manage all your networks remotely, which in turn makes it easier to manage your infrastructures.
PRTG is an all-in-one monitoring tool that helps you make the very most of Cisco Meraki and ensure all Meraki network components are running smoothly.
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
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.
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
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.
Cisco Meraki License sensor
The Cisco Meraki License sensor monitors your company's Meraki licenses via the Cisco Meraki dashboard API. This convenient sensor displays the number and type of licenses you have, and how many days are left until they expire.
Cisco Meraki Network Health sensor
The Cisco Meraki Network Health sensor monitors the health of Cisco Meraki network devices via the Cisco Meraki dashboard API. This sensor displays the status of:
- IoT devices
- Meraki radio (MR) devices
- Meraki switching (MS) devices
- Meraki security (MX) devices
PRTG is compatible with all major vendors and manufacturers

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.
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).
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?
