Cisco Meraki Cloud Managed Wireless is 100% cloud managed for faster deployment, simplified administration, and richer visibility. Cisco Meraki access points are built from the highest grade components and carefully optimized for a seamless user experience. The outcome: faster connections, greater user capacity, more coverage, and fewer support calls. Enterprise-class 802.11ac and 802.11n APs feature high power radios and enhanced receive sensitivity. MIMO and integrated beamforming maximize capacity without sacrificing range. Enhanced CPU for line-rate deep packet inspection, multigigabit ethernet for 2.5Gbps over a single cable (MR53 only), and custom RF design for enhanced performance. In addition to the high-power 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz client-serving radios, Cisco Meraki APs pack a dedicated security radio. The radio continuously scans and protects against security threats, senses the RF environment and adapts to interference, and automatically configures RF settings to maximize performance.
Cisco Meraki access points provide deep network insight enabling smarter network management. The Cisco Meraki dashboard gives visibility into the network users, their devices, and their applications. Armed with rich analytics, administrators can quickly create access control and application usage policies, optimizing both the end-user experience and network security. Powerful and intuitive multi-site management via the cloud, while eliminating the cost and complexity of traditional on-site wireless controllers. The industry’s only end-to-end solution which unifies WAN, LAN, wireless LAN, and mobile device management under a single pane of glass. Integrated Bluetooth Beacons, streamlined guest access, and rich location analytics provide unmatched opportunity for customer engagement. Cisco Meraki Cloud Managed Wireless simplifies day-to-day operations and puts intuitive yet powerful tools in the hands of network administrators.
Cisco Meraki Cloud Managed Wireless 802.11ac
The Cisco Meraki Cloud Managed Wireless MR53 sets the new standard in wireless. Designed specifically for high density and next-generation deployments, it’s the world’s fastest cloud-managed wireless access point. Using wider channel bandwidths, more efficient transmission technologies, and less crowded channels at 5 GHz help the MR53 achieve speeds up to 2.5 Gbps, while also providing administrators complete visibility and control. The MR53 increases the channel bandwidth — the size of the pipe used to transmit data — up to 160 MHz. These wider channels enable faster transmissions and increase aggregate performance in dense multi-client environments. With enhanced modulation, the MR53 encodes data more efficiently. By sending more data over the air in less time, the MR53 can support more clients at once, and speeds uploads and downloads of large files and video. The MR53’s 802.11ac radio operates exclusively in the 5 GHz band, a less-crowded spectrum enabling wider channels with less interference. A second radio is dedicated to supporting legacy 802.11b/g/n clients at 2.4 GHz.
Cisco Meraki Location Analytics displays real-time location statistics to improve customer engagement and loyalty across sites, and is built-in to Cisco Meraki APs with no additional cost or complexity. Data collected by APs is synced with the Cisco Meraki cloud and automatically reported in the dashboard, revealing visitor traffic trends, dwell time, and new vs. repeat visitor loyalty. Use Location Analytics to compare visitor trends between sites or after launching campaigns, and to find the effect of actions on visitor dwell time or repeat visit frequency. Customize the display to show data for a specific day, weekend, or even trends over a month. Integrated Bluetooth technology enables iBeacon and other active customer engagement applications, such as assisted navigation or location-aware mobile apps. Automated inventory scanning seamlessly tracks fleets of remote Beacons and alerts administrators on entry or exit. Compatible with overlay Beacon systems for micro-location mapping and immediate zone beaconing.
