Description

High performance 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless

The Cisco Meraki MR53 is a cloud-managed 4×4:4 802.11ac Wave 2 access point with 160 MHz channels and MU-MIMO support. Designed for next-generation deployments in offices, schools, hospitals, shops, and hotels, the MR53 offers high performance, enterprise-grade security, and simple management.

The MR53 provides a maximum of 2.5 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 Low Energy (BLE) scanning and Beaconing.

With the combination of cloud management, high perfomance hardware, multiple radios, and advanced software features, the MR53 makes an oustanding platform for the most demanding of uses – including high-density deployments and bandwidh or performanceintensive applications like voice and high-definition video.

MR53 and Meraki cloud management: A powerful combo

Management of the MR53 is through the Meraki cloud, with an intuitive browser-based interface that enables rapid deployment without time-consuming training or costly certifications. Since the MR53 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 imediate troubleshooting over the web so that distributed networks can be managed with a minimum of hassle. The MR53’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.
