Cons

Cisco

  • The configuration is not easy to do with the console. A more user-friendly approach would be appreciated.
  • When a problem occurs doing the configuration, the debug information is not very helpful.
  • WiFi capability would be great.
  • Maybe have a version with GPU to be able to run AI models on it.

  • When Internet is lost and come back we need to reset the Z3 device from the dashboard in order to register the IP Phone to CUCM
  • It would be nice to manage the Z3 device to a local web portal just for TS
  • Max Speed 100Mbps. It would be nice if it could run up to 1GB

      I have not experienced performance from other networking platforms though Cisco Catalyst IR1100 Rugged Series Routers is very powerful and most effective in service delivery. The operational cost can be afforded by both small and large-scale businesses. Workflow automation enhances faster service delivery and creates room for the deployment of new services. I commend this platform to any organization that is struggling to realize development dream in networking programs.

      With Cisco 800 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 800) you can establish VPN connections and maybe integrate the IP Phone to your CUCM; however, you need an expert in place; you need to configure it with tunnels GRE or VPNs for example; you also need to configure other VPN devices on the main site. With Cisco Meraki Z3 Teleworker you just connect it to the Internet and make some easy configuration from the Meraki Dashboard and are ready.
