This past week, we unboxed Meraki’s MX64W, an all-in-one wireless, networking and security device. As with any new package, we couldn’t wait to open it up and see what goodies were inside! Like all of Meraki’s products, this security device is sleek and elegant.
The Meraki MX64W is an ideal solution for small businesses that need a multi-functional device with quick deployment. Keep in mind however that the recommended maximum client number that can be connected is 50 devices. With zero-touch provisioning, users can deploy remotely in just minutes and manage their settings via an easy to use web based dashboard. In the cloud based centralized management system, you can visibly see and control your wireless, networking and security features.
As you can see in the below picture, in the box there is a power supply - 18 DC, a security appliance, 2 antennas, 2 network cables, wall screws, and information packet.
Security and Networking Features
Besides being really really ridiculously good looking, this device has state of the art security features. Two security features to note are the malware protection and VPN capabilities. Because of the auto self-configuration site to site VPN, users can have secure and encrypted traffic between locations.
Since this Meraki product is managed via a cloud-based centralized management dashboard, the lucky owner can monitor their network and security initiatives from any location on any device. The centralized management dashboard also includes layer 7 application visibility and traffic shaping.
