The Cisco Meraki MR56 is a cloud-managed 8x8:8 802.11ax access point that raises the bar for wireless performance and efficiency. Designed for deployments in offices, schools, hospitals, retail locations, and hotels, the MR56 offers high throughput, enterprise-grade security, and simple management.




The MR56 provides a maximum of 5.9 Gbps aggregate frame rate with concurrent 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radios. A dedicated third radio provides real-time WIDS/WIPS with automated RF optimization, and a fourth integrated radio delivers Bluetooth scanning and beaconing. Technologies like transmit beamforming and enhanced receive sensitivity allow the MR56 to support a higher client density than typical enterprise-class access points, resulting in better performance, from each AP.

Management of the MR56 is done through the Meraki cloud, with a browser-based interface that enables quick deployment without the usual training or costly certifications. Because the MR56 is self-configuring and web-managed, it can be deployed in a matter of minutes, even without on-site IT staff.

The MR56s firmware is automatically updated when necessary via the cloud – so never miss new features, security updates, bug fixes and other enhancements, again!
