Faster than a speeding packet, more capacity than Wi-Fi 6 APs, able to leap into your network in (almost) a single bound!
Your name doesn’t need to be Clark Kent to be a superhero. While our new MR57 most likely won’t give you the ability to fly (that we know of), it will give your network super speed and super strength.
In our post last month, The 6Es of Wi-Fi 6E, we announced our first Wi-Fi 6E indoor access point. We’re here to officially say, the MR57 is now orderable. Besides having a sleek new look, let’s talk about the superpowers the MR57 brings to your network.
Super speed, powered by Wi-Fi 6E
Need to change the world for your workforce fast? The Wi-Fi 6E MR57 brings the speed your diverse and growing IT environment needs. The 6 GHz spectrum delivers higher throughput by upping Wi-Fi speeds to 4,800 Mbps and expanding the 20 MHz, 40 MHz, 80 MHz, and 160 MHz channels.
Super strength to tackle every network villain
Ready to shoulder any network workload, the MR57 is a cloud-managed 802.11ax-compatible access point that raises the bar for wireless performance and efficiency. Designed for next-generation deployments in dense environments like offices, schools, hospitals, retail shops, and hotels, the MR57 offers high throughput, enterprise-grade security, and simple management (more on that superpower in a moment).
No matter what problem arises, the MR57 is up to the task, packing concurrent 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, and 6 GHz radios, a dedicated radio for real-time WIDS/WIPS and automated RF optimization, and an integrated IoT radio for Bluetooth® Low Energy scanning and beaconing.
The MR57 makes all that power look easy (whether you power it directly or through its 802.3at- and 802.3bt-compliant Ethernet ports). It even gives you the flexibility to switch between multiple operation modes: pick dual-band mode and get an extra 5 GHz capacity to handle today’s wireless congestion, or, when your employees’ 6E client devices come online in force, flip the switch and open up the 6 GHz band.
Always there when you need it
Speaking of those PoE ports, the MR57 sports dual mGig Ethernet for high availability or link aggregation. That secondary Ethernet port can also be used for power and data sharing or in high-availability mode for added resiliency.
The power of the platform
Even superheroes need to learn new tricks to keep up with an ever-changing world. Just like our other award-winning access points, you’ll manage your new MR57 through the Meraki dashboard. And, since the MR57 is self-configuring, it can be deployed to remote locations in a matter of minutes, even without on-site staff.
Get x-ray vision with 24×7 monitoring via the Meraki cloud, plus real-time alerts if your network encounters problems. Meraki remote diagnostic tools equip you with immediate troubleshooting over the web, allowing you to manage your distributed networks with minimal hassle. See the full MR57 specifications here.
