Brennan IT takes Cisco Meraki to the next level with a unique managed services offering.

20th February 2014.

Brennan IT, a market leader in managed services, is pleased to announce that it is one of the first Australian resellers, to take the Cisco Meraki Wi-Fi solution and wrap a comprehensive managed service around it to make it easy for businesses to offer corporate and guest Wi-Fi access.

Demand for centrally-managed Wi-Fi services across business locations has never been higher, and it continues to grow exponentially as more workers use mobile devices on a daily basis, and brands offer guest Wi-Fi access to improve customer service and increase brand loyalty.

Cisco Meraki offers an industry-leading, feature rich wireless LAN/ Wi-Fi solution for businesses operating in multiple locations, coupled with robust security features. The ability to manage it in the Cloud has meant that Brennan IT is able to offer a comprehensive managed service around Cisco Meraki.

“It’s a natural extension of our managed data networking product,” Dave Stevens, managing director, Brennan IT says. “Now we can offer a solution for our customers to extend the reach of their network right down to the wireless devices, and we can manage it all for them remotely, so it complements the core products really well. It can also provide customers with a key competitive advantage, by enabling guest and customer access.”

“Having a highly secure, feature rich wireless LAN/Wi-Fi solution for businesses operating in multiple locations that is managed in the cloud in the way that Cisco Meraki delivers is unique at meeting all our requirements.”

Meraki is a story of true wireless innovation. Founded by two MIT PhD students, Sanjit Biswas and John Bicket, and a third, Hans Robertson, it was acquired by Cisco in December 2012 for an estimated $1.2 billion.

This innovative vendor, as part of Cisco, has continued to report strong traction in Australia, with early customers such as Endeavour Foundation in Queensland realising the benefits of robust Wi-Fi for both customers and staff.

“Faced with market trends such as mobility and cloud, today’s midsize businesses have rapidly increased IT demands with limited resources. With its Cisco Meraki Wi-Fi Managed Service, Brennan IT is turning an important spotlight on this important customer segment and helping to meet the mid-market’s demand for a highly secure, reliable and headache-free BYOD network,” said Jason Brouwers, director of partner business group for Cisco Australia and New Zealand.
