It’s cold and flu season – people all over the country are visiting their doctors for relief from sneezing, coughing, and sore throats. Imagine how they would react if their doctor asked them to run a 100 yard dash with a stopwatch, compared their results to national averages and then declared them healthy. Most patients would want a more data driven approach their health with detailed inspection producing facts which then inform thoughtful analysis. Let’s look in some ears and noses, take some temperatures, and listen to some lungs.
What if the patient was your network made up of firewalls, switches, access points, routers, servers, desktops, laptops, tablets, and who knows what else? Troubleshooting network performance is more complicated than just running a speed test and confirming you can stream YouTube as fast as your ISP says you should. With Meraki powered networks, we help customers verify that a gigabit network connection carries the correct gigabit of data that serves the business. Who has sent and received the most data today? What device is on the other end of this cable? Where is the rogue DHCP server on the network? These questions – and many more – are answered faster than you can log in to the cloud management portal.
With Meraki, your network topology diagram is always up to date – no Visio required!
Cloud network management becomes cloud network monitoring – alerting you when critical devices go offline and automatically upgrading firmware versions during off-peak hours.
Network troubleshooting requires more than a straight line drag race. eGroup would love to show you the other ways that Meraki can help you spend less time diagnosing and more time making data driven decisions. The Doctor is IN!
