Cisco Meraki recently announced the release of their first Communications product the MC74 Phone that will be unbelievably easy to deploy and integrate perfectly with the rest of their Cloud Managed Networking products.
Unfortunately for Australian Customers we haven't got access to this product just yet though, as the details of a Service Provider within the Meraki Dashboard to provide the backend haven't been finalised. We are eagerly awaiting access to what looks like a game changing product!
Using the Cisco Meraki Cloud Managed Dashboard administrators can easily add new phones to the network, even remotely! The phone can be unboxed at its destination, connected to the network and automatically provisioned instantly from a pre-defined config.
A number range can be obtained from a service provider from within the Meraki Dashboard itself, further simplifying creating a telephony network and making it easier to deploy for small to medium business than ever before.
The phone itself has a high-definition, color, 7” IPS-backlit touchscreen display for easy navigation, and front and side USB headset ports and 3.5mm audio headset socket amongst other innovative Features.
