Cisco Meraki MR52 Wireless Access Point

Cisco Meraki MR52 Features

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

High performance 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless

The Cisco Meraki MR52 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 MR52 offers high performance, enterprise-grade security, and simple management.

The MR52 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 performance hardware, multiple radios, and advanced software features, the MR52 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.

MR52 and Meraki cloud management: A powerful combo

Management of the MR52 is through the Meraki cloud, with an intuitive browser-based interface that enables rapid deployment without time-consuming training or costly certifications. Since the MR52 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 so that distributed networks can be managed with a minimum of hassle.

The MR52’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.
