Versatile, easy product to configure and very reliable!
The Meraki MX84 is a cloud managed security appliance. It has 2 x WAN (Internet) ports, 8 x LAN Gigabit Ethernet ports and 2 SFP ports. It supports both site-to-site VPN and client VPN, up to 200 clients, has a WAN throughput of 500 Mbps and is an ideal security appliance for a small branch office. The MX84 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. Having deployed dozens of these devices they are highly recommended.
