- 1 USB port for secondary cellular failover
- L3 firewall and L7 application traffic shaping
The Cisco Meraki Z3C teleworker gateway is an enterprise class firewall, VPN gateway and router with an integrated CAT 3 LTE modem. 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 Z3 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.
- Auto VPN technology
Leveraging Meraki's cloud architecture, VPN tunnels to HQ or the data center can be enabled via a single click without any command-line 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 VPN solutions.
- 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 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.
