The Power of the Meraki Teleworker Gateway

Hi everyone!


Given that a lot of people are working from home right now we decided to make a quick video showing how you might use a Meraki appliance as a teleworker gateway.


For more details and best practices on Cisco Meraki teleworker solutions see this article: Meraki and Cisco Collaboration Teleworker Solution for Businesses

 

If there is any other video content you'd like to see, let us know in the comments!

Kind of a big deal

The cutting over was impressive. I was legit thinking "they did think about the fact that the call is going to break right".

The Power of the Telenworker gateway is well about 50 Watts 😄
Funny video guys 🙂 I love it.

 

Also a good case for using 5 GHz wireless in your client devices, because did you see that airtime utilzation on 2.4.

I saw a York,PA there Adam. I wonder who from Cisco is in my neck of the woods. Otherwise good well rounded video. Are we going to see an uptick in production of the MX & MR devices?

At ~ $300+ a piece, the Z3 boxes aren't exactly something we would be handing out to all remote users but I could see some critical roles where they would be worth every penny.  I especially like the  option of being able to plug an IP phone in for use at home.

Super informative and powerful video. Meraki is easy to tech but some really cool and innovative technology. Wish our company would implement more of Meraki gear.

This could have came in handy for some of the users we had to get working from home.

Great little video - loved the Office Space movie TPS report reference.

Would suggest that he adds a link to the various teleworker office appliances or at least list them.

Thanks

You have the cellular gateway in the video, but if someone happens to get their hands on a Z3C, watch out.

 

Do not pack it all up, new and unboxed, with a lovely nano sim, and unlimited 4G plan, and drive to a remote site...

 

The cellular configuration needs to come down from the Dashboard, which means you need an ethernet internet connection first for the Z3C to sync up. Watch out!!

Yup. Sounds like you found out the hard way? 🙄

Thank you for that heads up.  So far we've only done Z3 models but one or two new customers are considering Z3c's and one of those would be primarily run over cellular. 

 

We usually preload/configure/allow firmware updates before a box goes out but occasionally send out unconfig'd units at customer request (or direct ship because someone is in a hurry) and that would be an unpleasant surprise...

Watch out for Trial Kit on this, as they tend to be direct shipped!
