Primarily designed as a security appliance, the MX68CW incorporates all the security expertise of both Meraki and Cisco - two of the market leaders.  The stateful inspection firewall has a throughput of 450Mbps, and can support up to fifty users at a time.  Out of the box, you get VPN support with IPSec security, Active Directory integration, and identity-based policies.

For further functionality, we recommend adding the optional Advanced Security License.  This unlocks its ability to function as a self-updating anti-malware system, as well as adding impressive intrusion detection and prevention routines.

In addition, the MX68CW also incorporates a full-featured 802.11ac Wave 2 WiFi router.  Utilizing both the 2.4ghz and 5ghz bands in a two-stream array, the WiFi side has a maximum theoretical throughput of 1.3Gbps.  Support for up to four SSIDs means you can easily separate your work networks from public-facing access for guests or customers.

It also incorporates two PoE+ Gigabit Ethernet ports, allowing the MX68CW to host appliances such as VOIP phones or other Internet-of-Things devices.

Where the MX68CW shines, however, is that it is one of the only security appliances on the market to include a built-in CAT6 LTE modem.  With a SIM card inserted, the MX68CW can utilize 3G or 4G networks as a backup connection method, automatically switching over if the primary connection ever drops.  This makes the MX68CW invaluable for providing robust continuity of service, even if there are issues with the Internet connection.
