Meraki introduces new MX67, MX68 products and Z3CSyah Ismail
Cisco Meraki has introduced brand new additions to its MX and Z products, with multiple new MX67 and MX68 security and SD-WAN appliances, along with a new Z3C (as seen above) teleworker and IoT device. With upgraded and improved hardware, the additions to the MX line feature higher throughputs, faster Wi-Fi, and integrated LTE modems. The built-in modems will offer a greatly simplified way to connect remote locations or provide failover redundancy via LTE.
The new MX products benefit from state of the art new hardware features designed to deal with an evolving branch environment including up to 450 Mbps throughput, 802.11ac Wave 2 Wireless and integrated 300 Mbps CAT 6 LTE cellular modem. The MX family adds six new models to the highly successful MX64 and MX65 small branch security and SD-WAN appliances. The new MX67 and MX68 products include models with wired, wireless, cellular, and PoE+ capabilities. Both the MX67C and MX68CW feature region-specific SKUs to accommodate separate cellular bands. Meraki is partnering with mobile providers to fully certify the cellular platforms across all regions.
The Meraki Z3C, now with a built-in 100 Mbps CAT 3 LTE modem provides an elegant way to add redundancy for teleworker deployments. Customers can use the Z3C to securely connect remote or isolated machinery such as vending machines, ATMs, and kiosks.
