Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Meraki Z3 Teleworker

As you know there are a lot of challenges that you need to solve when you have a teleworker. Some of them are: 1.- Zero onsite IT Support 2.- No access to VoIP Telephony (you need VPN) 3.- SaaS Application Performance I would say Cisco Meraki Z3 Teleworker solved these Challenges and others.

Pros

  • Zero Touch Provisioning
  • VPN Device
  • Gateway Device
  • Firewall capabilities

Cons

  • 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

  • Good visibility for IT team so we can monitor and validate the teleworker traffic
  • Zero Touch Provisioning so we do not need to send a Engineer to configure it.
  • Consumer-grade network security
Cisco Meraki Z3 Teleworker acts not just as a gateway but also as a VPN and Firewall. The performance is great and it solves a lot of situations, that I mentioned before. I highly recommend buying and trying it.
  • Cisco 800 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 800) and Cisco 4000 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 4000)
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.
Cisco 1000 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 1000), Cisco 4000 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 4000), Cisco Catalyst 9800 Series Wireless Controllers
Cisco Meraki Z3 Teleworker can be used as Gateway/VPN or Firewall.
