MR53 – Meraki Access Point
The Meraki MR53 is the new top-of-the-line in Meraki access points, a superior 802.11ac Wave 2 option that integrates the latest in WiFi advances.
The dual 2.5 and 5ghz radios provide a 4x4 160mhz MU-MIMO stream, bringing over-the-air speeds of up to 2.5 Gbps. These are backed by smart bandwidth-switching and beamshaping capabilities that bring superior performance, even in high-density environments. Integrated roaming options allow seamless movement, even across large campuses.
Bandwidth comes via a dedicated Gigabit Ethernet port, as well as a new 2.5ghz Multigigabit port to prevent bandwidth bottlenecks.
A third radio is dedicated to security and diagnostics. It performs 24/7 wireless intrusion detection and prevention services, while also providing minute-by-minute location data and other analytics. Further security comes via a smart app-aware firewall, and robust admin-side traffic shaping options. The MR53 also has a Bluetooth beacon built in, for superior messaging and customer interaction possibilities.
This is all controlled through the simple and powerful Meraki Dashboard, which ties all their products to a single access-anywhere administrative platform. Admins get full oversight over their network, with highly granular data on individual usage.
There are few options on the market for larger organizations that offer this level of speed, flexibility, security, and simple administration. The MR53 datasheet is available for download.
