Cloud Networking Architecture
Cisco Meraki Cloud-Managed network endpoints connect securely to the Cisco Meraki Cloud. Using an intuitive browser based dashboard, network administrators can fully deploy, manage, and troubleshoot their network via a Cloud-hosted centralised management platform.
The Cisco Meraki Cloud network offers security, reliability, and scalability. It’s out-of-band control plane separates network management data from user data (eg configuration, statistics, monitoring, etc) flows from Cisco Meraki devices (wireless access points, switches and security appliances) to the Cisco Meraki Cloud over a secure Internet connection. User data (web browsing, internal applications, etc) does not flow through the Cloud, instead flowing directly to its destination on the LAN or across the WAN.
