MR42 -Meraki Access Point
The new Cisco Meraki MR42 access point is the ultimate in business WiFi, combining cutting-edge 802.11ac Wave 2 technologies with the most advanced and flexible mesh-based network architecture yet developed.
The MR42 Meraki access point boasts four separate radios: A 3x3 MU-MIMO 802.11ac Wave 2 transmitter capable of pushing up to 1.9Gbps to multiple users simultaneously. A third radio is dedicated to security and analytics, providing precise tracking of all WiFi usage throughout a facility. The fourth is a low-power Bluetooth radio, for beacons and further user tracking.
The result is a WiFi AP which can function in even the highest-density environments flawlessly, utilizing built-in beamshaping, RF optimization, and frequency-hopping to maximize connectivity for all users. For security, it includes built-in WIPS as well as an anti-virus system.
It doesn't even require a separate power supply, and is capable of running at full capacity off a single PoE+ Gigabit Ethernet line. (AC adapter, optional.)
The Meraki Dashboard cloud-based management system makes administration simple, even for newcomers. Setup is plug-and-play and only takes minutes, then can be controlled through a single management window. The MR42 provides real-time usage, RF, and user location tracking, giving admins at-a-glance overviews of usage at any time. Traffic can be precisely tracked and shaped on a per-app level, thanks to Layer 7-aware packet processing.
This Meraki access point is among the most powerful access points on the market, and an excellent entry point into Meraki or addition to an existing network.
