MX65W - Meraki Firewall
The new Cisco Meraki MX65W dual wired\wireless firewall creates a new standard in all-in-one small-business networking and security. This compact and affordable unit features an amazing array of options and features which allow it to function equally well as a first device for those new to Meraki, or mesh seamlessly into existing Meraki installations.
The MX65W is, first and foremost, a security appliance which brings a significant security upgrade to Meraki networking. The stateful inspection firewall features GeoIP-based rules, and has a maximum throughput of 250Mbps. It's recommended for 50 users or less. The MX65W also adds full VPN support, with throughput of 100Mbps and a maximum of 25 concurrent connections. With the advanced security license, you also get a range of robust active protections against intrusion, phishing, malware, and virus-based attacks.
As with all their products, the Meraki MX65W is exceptionally easy to install and administer. The cloud-based Meraki Dashboard interface simplifies the entire process, and requires no specific technical expertise beyond basic computer skills. There's no need to hire a dedicated administrator if you can't afford one.
The MX65W also functions as a full-featured access point and wired switch, appropriate for a wide range of small-office applications. The 802.11ac WiFi system is a full AP, supporting up to four SSIDs. It also has two dedicated Gigabit WAN ports, as well as ten Gigabit LAN ports, with PoE+ support on two ports. For small offices and startups, this Meraki firewall can truly be an all-in-one entry point to business class networking, one that's ready to grow alongside your business. Or add an MX65W to your wired network to immediately create a small parallel WiFi network. Few devices on the market feature this kind of flexibility.
