  31. Automatic Firmware upgrades - One of the great benefits of Meraki is that the upgrades don't take long (~2 minutes per MS/MX and less per MR). The MRs have a great mode where they can upgrade in a way to minimise disruption by not upgrading neighbouring APs at the same time. For MSs we just pick a quiet time and for MXs we have HA pairs so clients don't notice. If you compare this to our Cisco IOS switch stacks that take over 10 minutes to restart when upgrading and when we had WLCs where all APs went down at once.

  32. APIs - Integrate location data with CRM, loyality programs and custom applications for targeted real-time offers. The CLI is Dead; the API is Cool. Gartner Report

  33. Lifetime warranty of indoor APs
