The Cisco Meraki Z3 Teleworker appliance was ideal for scenarios where the remote worker spent the majority of their time remote. It alleviates the need for VPN software and gives the IT staff additional visibility into the connectivity of the user. We often encountered scenarios where the users broadband was having issues vs the Meraki network and the tools Meraki provides help to work through these scenarios. The case for the Meraki devices is not as strong for occasional users who cannot justify the cost of the appliance vs just logging in via VPN.

This is a VPN for a technical user. It's not the easiest VPN to use and, while very secure, the quirks and issues it has will frustrate your standard users. It's a great backup and secondary VPN option for me as a technical user, but I think for the average user I would recommend something a bit more friendly. For all you IT folks out there or more tech-savvy people, I would definitely recommend checking it out though!

  • The speed you get is actually really good. I have connected it to multiple locations and very rarely had issues with slow speed.
  • There are multiple servers across different locations. So you always have a lot of choices.
  • Simple to use. The UI is really clean and easy to navigate. Works almost with a single click.
  • You also get access to the mobile version which works really nicely as well.
  • Good support. They were really helpful and responded quickly when I contacted them.

Cons
Cisco
  • 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

  • Not enough options on Mobile/iOS.
  • Their Trusted Wifi Access Points feature just doesn't seem to work.

At the time of implementation, we were not aware of a comparable product from Cisco or comparative vendor. We had initially deployed the Z1 appliance and had so much success that the transition to the Cisco Meraki Z3 Teleworker was a quick and easy fit for us. The device is easy to deploy and just works.

I tried a few alternatives (Cyberghost, Private Internet access etc) before settling on this. Of all the different options I looked into this one performed most reliably for me. It was also the fastest of the different options I tested. It was also backed up by good reviews online and solid support team. It is a little pricier than some competitors but I feel I get good value out of it.

Scalability
Cisco
Your ability to scale is limited by your ability to pay for additional access points. Again the solution works best for remote or mostly remote users so that they don't have to deal with the everyday experience of the VPN. Allows you more visibility into remote users local networks which depending on security config, may be of value.

  • Consumer-grade network security

  • A single leak of data or hack easily makes this worth it.
  • Its low cost makes ROI and justifiability easy.
