Meraki Systems Manager is Cisco Systems' Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution that allows you to manage all of your iOS devices from a central web dashboard. Installing this app on an iOS device provides enhanced MDM and MAM functionality that includes features such as a managed app store, content delivery with backpack, and GPS location reporting.

Note: continued use of GPS running in the background can decrease battery life.

It’s okay


Two big things - location and control - are suspect. On stolen/lost devices, trying to locate them - even last location - has been way off.
There is also moderate tax/hit on battery life for this merely average visibility and control.

No more manual profile reinstall or reporting LAN IP?


I use Meraki Systems manager to manage over 3000 iOS devices for a school district. I mostly like it.

However, two latest versions of the iOS app removed some useful functionality:

1) Removed the option in the app to manually reinstall the management profile. This was very useful for the occasional device that just stops communicating with the MDM server for no apparent reason. Since we're using Meraki in conjunction with Apple's Device Enrollment Program, this means if a device needs the profile reinstalled, I now have two choices: wipe the device completely, or if it's not on the current iOS version, put it in recovery mode, upgrade it with iTunes, and hope that fixes it.

2) Even with the app open in the foreground, it no longer reports the local LAN IP to the Meraki management console website - just the public IP. When our WAN has 16 campuses all on separate subnets, that was a useful functionality for tracking device location in the console. Since the app won't give GPS location unless it's in the foreground, I have to assign the device to a profile that puts it in single app mode locked into the Meraki app in order to even say more than, "Yup, it's somewhere on our network."

MDM is Great


I am not sure if I am using the dashboard to its fullest extent but have questions that I can't seem to find answers to.

My main concern from the device itself and with restrictions enabled the end user can still go into Settings/General/Device Management and remove Meraki Management from the device. It won't uninstall it and I will receive an email informing me that the profile has been removed. I just feel like it shouldn't allow it to even happen.

I'm probably just not understanding this as it is all still new to me and I'm trying to figure it out as we go. I've loaded 17 devices which is about half. I just need someone with more knowledge to help me out a little bit.

Otherwise, it's been working pretty good. Sometimes I find the location is wrong by a few states. I'm in Columbus, Oh and sometimes it shows devices in Youngstown, Oh or in Chicago, Ill. Which I can guarantee they aren't there when I have them here. From the dashboard I click on Refresh Location but it never seems to do anything.
