    Cisco Meraki MR42 Access Point
    Dual-Concurrent 3x3 MIMO 802.11ac Access Point

    Dual-band 802.11ac Wave 2 access point with separate radios dedicated to security, RF management, and Bluetooth

    The Cisco Meraki MR42 is a four radio, cloud-managed 3x3 MU-MIMO 802.11ac Wave 2 access point. Designed for next-generation deployments in offices, schools, hospitals, shops, and hotels, the MR42 ofers performance, security, and simple management.

    The MR42 provides a maximum 1.9 Gbps aggregate dual–band frame rate with concurrent 802.11ac Wave 2 and 802.11n 3x3:3 MIMO radios. A dedicated third radio provides real-time WIDS/ WIPS with automated RF optimisation. In addition, an integrated fourth radio delivers Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) scanning and Beaconing functionality.

    With a combination of cloud management, high performance hardware, multiple radios, and advanced software features, the MR42 makes an outstanding platform for the most demanding of uses today and tomorrow. These uses include high-density deployments and support for applications like voice and high-definition video.

    Features:

    • 3x3:3 MU-MIMO 802.11ac Wave 2
    • 1.9 Gbps dual–radio aggregate frame rate
    • Enhanced transmit power and receive sensitivity
    • Full-time WiFi location tracking via dedicated 3rd radio
    • 24x7 real-time WIDS/WIPS and spectrum analytics via dedicated third radio
    • Integrated enterprise security and guest access
    • Integrated Bluetooth Low Energy Beacon and scanning radio
    • Application-aware traffic shaping
    • Self-configuring, plug-and-play deployment
    • Sleek, low profile design blends into office environments
    • Optimised for voice and video

    High Performance

    Ideal for:

    • Performance-critical wireless LANs
    • High-density environments

    MR42 and Meraki Cloud Management: A Powerful Combination

    The MR42 is managed through the Meraki cloud, with an intuitive browser-based interface that enables rapid deployment without training or certifications. Since the MR42 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.

    24/7 monitoring via the Meraki cloud delivers real-time alerts if the network encounters problems. Remote diagnostic tools enable immediate troubleshooting over the web, meaning multi-site, distributed networks can be easily managed. The MR42’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.

    100% Cloud managed for faster deployment, simplified administration and richer visibility
    Meraki High Capacity

    High Capacity

    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 802.11ac and 802.11n APs feature high power radios and enhanced receive sensitivity. MIMO and integrated beamforming maximise capacity without sacrificing range.

    Enhanced CPU for line-rate deep packet inspection

    Flash memory provisioned for cloud management

    Custom RF design for enhanced performance

    Dedicated Security Radio

    In addition to the high-power 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz client-serving radios, the Meraki MR42 packs a dedicated security radio. The radio:

    Continuously scans and protects against security threats

    Senses the RF environment and adapts to interference

    Automatically configures RF settings to maximise performance.

    Unmatched Visibility

    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.

    Meraki Visibility

    The Entire Network Under A Single Pane Of Glass

    • Powerful and intuitive multi-site management via the cloud, while eliminating the cost and complexity of traditional on-site wireless controllers.

    • The industry’s only end-to-end solution which unifies WAN, LAN, wireless LAN, and mobile device management under a single pane of glass.

    Meraki Mobile App

    The Meraki dashboard mobile app, available for iOS and Android, is ideal for network management on the go.
