High Performance 802.11ax Wireless
The Cisco Meraki MR36 is a cloud-managed 2x2:2 802.11ax access point that raises the bar for wireless performance and efficiency. Designed for next-generation deployments in offices, schools, hospitals, shops, and hotels, the MR36 offers high throughput, enterprise-grade security, and simple management.
The MR36 provides a maximum of 1.7 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.
With the combination of cloud management, high performance hardware, multiple radios, and advanced software features, the MR36 makes an outstanding platform for the most demanding of uses—including high-density deployments and bandwidth or performance-intensive applications like voice and high-definition video.

MR36 and Meraki Cloud Management
Management of the MR36 is performed through the Meraki cloud, with an intuitive browser-based interface that enables rapid deployment without time-consuming training or costly certifications. Because the MR36 is self-configuring and managed over the web, it can be deployed at a remote location in a matter of minutes, even without on-site IT staff.
24x7 monitoring via the Meraki cloud delivers real-time alerts if a network encounters problems. Remote diagnostic tools enable immediate troubleshooting over the web so that distributed networks can be managed with a minimum of hassle.
The MR36’s firmware is automatically kept up to date via the cloud. New features, bug fixes, and enhancements are delivered seamlessly over the web. This means no manual software updates to download or missing security patches to worry about.
Enterprise-class performance, managed from the cloud for faster deployment, simplified administration, and richer visibility
High Efficiency Wireless
Cisco Meraki access points are built from the highest grade components and carefully optimised for a seamless user experience. The outcome: faster connections, greater user capacity, more coverage, and fewer support calls.
Built for Performance
Enterprise-class Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) access points feature high power radios and enhanced receive sensitivity. Technologies like OFDMA, MU-MIMO, and integrated beamforming maximize capacity without sacrificing range.
Up to 8 transmit and 8 receive antennas for enhanced performance and better coverage
Multigigabit Ethernet for up to 5 Gbps over a single existing cable
Custom RF design supports high client density environments
Dedicated Security Radio
In addition to the high-power 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz client-service radios, most Meraki APs also include a dedicated security radio that:
Continuously scans and protects against security threats
Senses the RF environment and adapts to interference
Automatically configures RF settings to maximise performance.
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, optimising both the end-user experience and network security.
