The Cisco Meraki MX supports 3G/4G service providers globally for WAN connection failover. Web caching temporarily stores video, media, and web documents, lowering bandwidth usage and accelerating the download speed of Internet content.

Application optimization
Layer 7 traffic shaping, application prioritization optimizes the traffic for mission-critical applications and user experience.

Intelligent path control
Use dynamic VPN path selection to choose the best VPN uplink based on packet loss, latency, and jitter. Define policies for sending the right traffic through the appropriate path (e.g., send voice via MPLS, http via VPN over broadband).

Secure connectivity
Cisco Meraki’s unique auto provisioning site-to-site VPN (Auto VPN) connects branches securely with unmatched simplicity. MX Security Appliances automatically learn VPN parameters needed to establish and maintain VPN sessions using a 128-bit AES encryption.
