Cloud wireless controllers

I would like to get some feedback and thoughts on cloud wireless controllers that you have used in the past and would recommend/not recommend.  I want to be able to control multiple access points across many sites and to also have control over guest access and employee access to the wireless network.  Guests will have direct access out to the internet only and employees will have their normal access.  How can I ensure guests can't go anywhere on my corporate network that they shouldn't and would i be better setting up a dedicated normal DSL pipe for guests to use only.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Check out Cisco Meraki.  It requires a physical device to be installed on the sites but everything can be configured via an online dashboard.

I've not used the wireless models myself but we have a small network switch which we have played with.  Seems good.

I believe that it does require you to have Meraki WAPS.
