Last January Cisco announced that they would be adding an exciting new feature for Meraki, the Meraki Wireless Health. In essence, Wireless Health is a powerful heuristics engine which can promptly find errors which are affecting the end users experience across multiple stages of their connectivity, which includes association, authentication, IP addressing and DNS availability, then does a quick cause of analysis and response.
This helps IT administrators to quickly find out whether there are users who are able or unable to successfully access the wireless network and easily identify the problematic access points, clients, and failing connection stages that are the source of bad end user experience. Being able to see all access points (AP) in a given network is a critical factor in having a successful end user experience by identifying and repairing problems to avoid lengthy and inopportune downtime and latency.
With this in mind, Cisco as recently announced that Meraki Wireless Health has become available to all existing MR customers at no additional cost or charge as a generally available beta feature. To access it, you just need to navigate to Wireless > Wireless health in the Meraki dashboard.
