CRN’s 2022 Products Of The Year
CRN staff compiled the top partner-friendly products that launched over the past year, then turned to solution providers to choose the winners.
Cisco Meraki is a portfolio of cloudcontrolled Wi-Fi, routing and security products. According to the company, the product line is especially popular in the SMB space because of its simplicity and ease of use, due in no small part to its single web-based dashboard. In June Cisco extended the Meraki dashboard’s abilities with a cloud management option, allowing it to be used to manage more of Cisco’s networking products, including its Catalyst line of access switches. Cisco Meraki was the overall winner in this product category and scored highest in customer need.
