The Meraki MX65W is a cloud managed security appliance with integrated 802.11ac wifi, 10 x Gigabit Ethernet Ports, 2 x Gigabit Ethernet Ports with Power over Ethernet (PoE+), supports both site-to-site VPN and client VPN, up to 50 clients, has a WAN throughput of 250 Mbps and is an ideal security appliance for a small home office or remote teleworker. The MX64 also supports advanced security features such as intrusion detection and prevention, content filtering, antivirus/malware detection and prevention, etc. as long as you purchase the respective MX Advanced Security License vs the less feature rich MX Enterprise License. Licenses are available in 1, 3, 5, 7 & 10 year terms with the longer terms being the best value. With the multi-year terms you essentially get 3 years for the price of 2 years, 5 years for the price of 3 years, 7 years for the price of 5 years and 10 years for the price of 7 years. Therefore, you should only consider purchasing the 3, 5, 7 and 10 year licenses only. The Meraki dashboard and enterprise support the licenses give you access to are both top notch. The build quality of the device is incredibly high and is built to last coming with a limited lifetime warranty with next day advance ship replacement in the event of hardware failure. Cisco Meraki's ease of deployment, management and reporting via their cloud-based dashboard is simply not matched in the industry. The integrated 802.11ac wifi in the MX64W does not mesh with other Meraki MR wireless access points, therefore, this device is only recommended for a small environment that is small enough where a single device will provide suitable coverage. While the MX65W is a clear leader amongst security devices with integrated wifi you would be better served to purchase the Meraki MX65 and standalone Meraki MR wireless access point(s) instead.
