The Meraki wireless mesh equipment is controlled by a 'cloud' controller. Unlike other more traditional wireless vendors such as Cisco and Aruba, their is no expensive controller hardware to install and maintain on your site. This means updates to your wireless network can be pushed out without your intervention should you wish. Meraki can provide new features like their newly released Live Client Tools.
These new tools and updates are pushed automatically out to your Meraki access points. The Live Tools allow you to see who is currently connected to your network, signal levels, see which access point they are associated to and even ping them if possible!
