Cisco Meraki MR84 Outdoor Access Point

Cisco Meraki MR84 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 MR84 is a four-radio, cloud-managed 4×4 MU-MIMO 802.11ac Wave 2 access point. Designed for high-performance next-generation deployments — in high-density environments with tough RF — the MR84 offers performance, enterprisegrade security, and simple cloud-based management. A unique industrial design enables flexible installation in harsh outdoor conditions or indoor spaces.

The MR84 provides a maximum 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.

The combination of cloud management, powerful hardware, multiple radios, and advanced software features make the MR84 an outstanding platform for the toughest use cases — including high-density deployments and support for latency-sensitive applications like voice and high-definition video.

MR84 and Meraki cloud management: A powerful combination

Management of the MR84 is handled through the Meraki dashboard, an intuitive browser-based interface that enables rapid deployment across multiple sites without the need for time-consuming training or costly certifications. Since the MR84 is selfconfiguring 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 so that distributed networks can be managed with a minimum of hassle.

The MR84’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.
