Cisco Meraki MR57 Access Point

expert on network solutions
Software configurable flex radio architecture for 6 GHz support

MR57 supports a software defined flex radio which can be toggled between a 5 GHz and 6 GHz. This provides an option to operate MR57 in either a dual 5 GHz configuration or a true tri-band configuration. Tri-band configuration unlocks the use of new spectrum in the 6 GHz frequency range which provides additional channels to increase throughput and reduce interference and noise from legacy devices. 6 GHz support ensures that the MR57 supports future technologies.

High Performance 802.11ax compatible wireless

The Cisco Meraki MR57 is a cloud-managed 4x4:4 802.11ax compatible access point that raises the bar for wireless performance and efficiency. Designed for next-generation deployments in offices, schools, hospitals, retail shops, and hotels, the MR57 offers high throughput, enterprise-grade security, and simple management. The MR57 provides a maximum of 7.78 Gbps* aggregate frame rate with concurrent 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz and 6 GHz radios.

A dedicated fourth radio provides real-time WIDS/WIPS with automated RF optimization, and a fifth integrated IoT radio delivers Bluetooth scanning and beaconing. With the combination of cloud management, high-performance hardware, multiple radios, and advanced software features, the MR57 makes an outstanding platform for the most demanding of uses—including high-density deployments and bandwidth or performance-intensive applications like voice (Cisco WebEx) and high-definition video.

Support for dual Ethernet ports to enable high availability

MR57 will support dual 5 Gigabit mGig Ethernet ports for high availability or for link aggregation. These ports can also be used for power-sharing to power up the AP and fully support the required functionality. The secondary Ethernet port can also be used for power and data sharing* or in a high availability mode* for added resiliency.

MR57 and Meraki cloud management

Management of the MR57 is through the Meraki cloud, with an intuitive browser-based interface that enables rapid deployment without time-consuming deployment complexity and time consuming staging process. Since the MR57 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 the network encounters problems. Remote diagnostic tools enable immediate troubleshooting over the web so that distributed networks can be managed with a minimum of hassle. New features, bug fixes, and enhancements are delivered seamlessly over from the dashboard.
