Meraki Z3C Cloud Managed MU-MIMO WiFi 5 PoE 3G/4G LTE Cat 3 Router/Firewall w/ VPN & Embedded SIM Slot (1300Mbps AC)
Fast, Reliable Connectivity for the Modern Teleworker
The Cisco Meraki Z-Series teleworker gateway is an enterprise class
firewall, VPN gateway and router. Each model offers five gigabit
ethernet ports and wireless for connectivity. Each model is designed
to securely extend the power of Meraki cloud managed networking
to employees, IT staff, and executives working from home. Using Meraki’s proven and highly scalable Auto VPN technology, administrators can deploy network services including VoIP and remote endpoints with automatic, zero-touch provisioning. Additionally the Z-series provides secure wired and wireless access, and increases
end-user productivity through Layer 7 traffic shaping. All models feature a high-performance stateful firewall, support for VLANs, inter-VLAN routing, and isolation to segregate corporate data from recreational traffic. The Z-series offers the latest in wireless performance with 802.11ac Wave 2 technology with MU-MIMO support
to provide reliable and high speed network access for most demanding business applications and latest devices.
Z-Series and Meraki Cloud Management: A Powerful Combo
All Meraki devices are managed via the Meraki cloud, with an intuitive browser-based interface. Since the Z-series is self-configuring
and managed over the web, you can rapidly deploy at remote locations without any assistance from end-users.
Meraki Cloud services monitor all devices 24x7 and deliver real-time
alerts if any device encounters a problem. Remote diagnostics tools
enable real-time troubleshooting through any web browser. New
features and enhancements are delivered seamlessly over the web,
so you never have to manually download software updates or worry
about missing security patches.
Leveraging Meraki’s cloud architecture, VPN tunnels to HQ or the
data center can be enabled via a single click without any commandline configurations or multi-step key permission setups. Meraki’s
patent-pending Auto VPN technology automatically tunnels, hole
punches, sets up route tables, and establishes the IPsec connections,
completely eliminating the complexity seen in traditional site-to-site
Application-aware traffic shaping
The Z-Series includes an integrated layer 7 packet inspection,
classification, and control engine, enabling you to set QoS policies
based on traffic type. Prioritize your mission critical applications like
VoIP or remote desktop, while setting limits on recreational traffic,
e.g., peer-to-peer and video streaming.
Simple, powerful security from end to end
With end-to-end VPN encryption, corporate data is always protected.
Additionally the Meraki Z-series supports 802.1x wired port
authentication, offering network and endpoint security no matter
where the gateway may be deployed
Self-configuring, self-optimizing, self-healing
When plugged in, the Z-Series automatically connects to the Meraki
cloud, downloads its configuration, and joins your network. In case of
WAN IP address changes, the Z-Series self heals by re-establishing
the site-to-site VPN tunnels using the new IP address. Also, if a
supported SIM card is installed or a 3G/4G modem is connected and
primary WAN uplink connectivity fails, the Z-Series will automatically
failover to cellular.
Industry-leading cloud management
Meraki’s award-winning cloud management architecture unifies WAN,
LAN, and wireless management under a web based dashboard, and
scales easily from small deployments to large, multi-site deployments
with tens of thousands of devices. The Meraki dashboard provides
intuitive yet powerful role-based administration, firmware updates,
configuration changes, email alerts, and easy to audit change logs.
