Powering the remote workforce

In a recent webinar, we discussed the challenging and unique times we live in as workforces around the world move to temporary remote work. While many of us are separated, we are also interconnected via the internet like never before. At Cisco Meraki, we want to help organizations continue doing what they are best at, with minimal discontinuity. Across Cisco, teams are collaborating to help communities work from home and maintain productivity through uncertain times. Working together, this is our global, collective opportunity to unlock human ingenuity and contribute to solving this crisis.

Today’s mission

Around the world, IT managers are undertaking the task of ensuring that hundreds and thousands of users experience a seamless transition to remote work. Critical work is being done at hospitals and on manufacturing floors, demanding the need for employees to stay connected. A sudden disruption of internet access can have a significant impact on an organization, as every second matters, and IT needs to just work. IT leaders want to make sure employees at home have the same simple, secure and reliable network access they get at work. This will enable them to stay connected with each other through collaboration applications such as Webex, and have access to office applications such as Office365, without a glitch. 

With the current state of things, employees have enough to worry about and be distracted by. The last thing a remote worker wants to worry about is the performance of their network connection, or how to configure their VPN. Providing internet access as a remote IT manager is highly challenging as the demand for support has increased with entire workforces working remotely. New ways of working mean that corporate networks are operating in a new way, resulting in new types of trouble tickets. Not to mention the headaches caused by managing the security of hundreds or thousands of remote employee connections.

Built for immediate connectivity

Our mission at Cisco Meraki has become more important than ever as we help IT managers navigate the difficult terrain of a remote work environment. Since our founding, we have supported fast-moving organizations looking to modernize their networks quickly. For those who need help to urgently modify their networks for remote work, Meraki offers an easy and secure option. Meraki devices can be pulled out of the box, plugged in virtually anywhere in the world, and instantly deliver a seamless “in-office” experience at home. With simple Meraki cloud-management, IT managers are able to maintain visibility of employee networks, and continue to monitor potential interference to workforce productivity while at home.

Here are just a few of the tools available to the administrator looking after remote workers:

  • Create a site-to-site VPN in a few clicks over a WAN link
  • Seamlessly and securely provide remote network access via Wi-Fi over an encrypted tunnel
  • Maintain service continuity with cellular backup
  • Keep end-user devices secure when off-network
  • Perform remote troubleshooting of employee connectivity and applications

The Meraki dashboard has also been updated to allow IT admins to quickly identify VPN clients within the organization.

How Cisco Meraki can help

At Cisco, we have been addressing the hurdles of remote work for years, and we want to do anything we can to help others during this unpredictable time. One of the most important things we can do right now is to empower IT managers to keep their organizations working seamlessly. Cisco has multiple offers available to help those in difficult times, such as free Webex, Cisco Security, and more. Meraki support is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to help prepare your organization for remote work. If you are looking to learn more about how Meraki can help mobilize your workforce, watch our on-demand webinar.

Meraki and Cisco Collaboration Teleworker Solution for Businesses

Introducing 3 new products

Amidst all the excitement around the release of our  MX series cloud managed  routers, we’ve been hard at work building new wireless technologies. Today, we are very excited to announce three new additions to our wireless product portfolio that provide greater capacity, increased security and broader reach for enterprise wireless LANs:

  • The Meraki MR24 ultra-high performance wireless access point, the first enterprise class AP to feature 3-stream,
    3×3 MIMO technology.
  • Meraki NAC, the  industry’s first network access control solution built in to a wireless LAN
  • Meraki Teleworker VPN, which provides secure remote access to the corporate network for wired and wireless clients like VoIP phones and iPads

Meraki MR24

The Meraki MR24 is the first enterprise class AP to feature 3-stream, 3×3 MIMO. This technology allows both of the MR24’s radios to use 3 data streams at once, for a total of 6 streams.

Independent testing of the MR24 by engineers at the Tolly Group saw speeds of over 240 Mbit/s – almost 2.5x the maximum speed of Fast Ethernet! Even at a range of 150 feet, testers recorded nearly 200 Mbit/s throughput.

We’re extremely excited to add this ultra-high performance access point to our wireless LAN family. We hope that it will be a valuable tool to our customers as they meet growing wireless capacity requirements.

The MR24 is available for immediate order at a list price of $1199.

Meraki NAC

Meraki NAC prevents clients without antivirus protection from accessing your network, reducing the threat of viruses and worms in increasingly open enterprise environments. Like our Traffic Shaper, Meraki NAC is a solution that previously would require the integration of a 3rd party NAC – with hardware, client software, VLAN configuration, AD integration etc.

Our NAC is the first NAC solution to be built directly into a wireless LAN. Configuration is done with just two clicks. Meraki NAC adds additional protection on top of existing features like our stateful policy firewall and guest isolation. Meraki NAC is included with our Enterprise Cloud Controller license, and will be rolled out to existing customers at no cost starting today. Enjoy!

Meraki Teleworker VPN

Meraki Teleworker VPN allows users to securely access their corporate network, including file servers, VoIP phone systems, and internal applications, from any Internet-connected Meraki AP. This AP establishes a secure tunnel back to headquarters – using our Cloud Controller to handle complexities like NAT traversal, key negotiation, etc. Teleworker VPN lets you extend the full office experience to remote workers: plug in a VoIP phone and get a dial tone or wirelessly access your private cloud from an iPad. Our teleworker solution enforces security policies like 802.1x, traffic shaping, and our new NAC, right at the edge, so your corporate network is well protected. Teleworker VPN is available on all Meraki enterprise APs at no additional charge (no VPN license!). Rollout to existing customers begins today. Learn more about our VPN solution, including both our new Teleworker VPN and site to site VPN with our MX routers.

We’re very excited about all of these new products. We’ll be following up with detailed posts about each of them in the coming weeks. In the mean time if you have any feedback let us know!
