he Cisco Meraki MR18 is an industry-first three-radio, cloud managed 2x2 MIMO 802.11n access point designed for deployments in offices, schools, hospitals, hotels, and large retail stores. The MR18 features dual-concurrent, dual-band operation and advanced 802.11n technologies such as MIMO and beam forming, delivering the high throughput and reliable coverage required by demanding business applications like voice and video. Not only does the MR18 provide speeds of up to 600 Mbps with two concurrent 2x2:2 MIMO radios, but also delivers unprecedented security and spectrum visibility via a third radio dedicated to 24x7 WIDS/WIPS and advanced RF analytics.
MR18 and Meraki Cloud Management: A Powerful Combo
The MR18 is managed via the Meraki cloud, with an intuitive browserbased interface that lets you get up and running quickly without training or certifications. Since the MR18 is self-configuring and managed over the web, it can even be deployed at a remote location without on-site IT staff. The MR18 is monitored 24x7 via the cloud, which delivers real-time alerts if your network encounters problems. Remote diagnostics tools enable real-time troubleshooting over the web, meaning multi-site, distributed networks can be managed remotely. The MR18’s firmware is always kept up to date from the cloud. New features, bug fixes, and enhancements are delivered seamlessly over the web, meaning no manual software updates to download or missing security patches to worry about.
Self-configuring, self-optimizing, self-healing
When plugged in, the MR18 automatically connects to the Meraki cloud, downloads its configuration, and joins the appropriate network. It self optimizes, determining the ideal channel, transmit power, and client connection parameters. It also self heals, responding automatically to switch failures and other errors
