The Meraki MR42 is a four radio, cloud-managed 3x3 MU-MIMO 802.11ac Wave 2 access point. The MR42 provides a maximum 1.9 Gbps frame rate with concurrent 802.11ac Wave 2 and 802.11n 3x3:3 MIMO radios. A
dedicated third radio provides real-time WIDS/WIPS with automated RF optimization. In addition, an integrated fourth radio delivers Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) scanning and Beaconing functionality.
The MR42 access point is an ideal cloud-managed solution for offices, schools, hospitals, shops, and hotels. It provides high-level performance, enterprise-grade security, and is simple to manage.
Aggregate data rate of up to 1.9 Gbps - A 5 GHz 3x3:3 radio and a 2.4 GHz 3x3:3 radio offer a combined aggregate dualband frame rate of 1.9 Gbps. Supports up to 1,300 Mbps in the 5 GHz band and 600
Mbps in the 2.4 GHz band. Technologies like transmit beamforming and enhanced receive sensitivity allow the MR42 to support a higher client density than typical enterprise-class access points, resulting in fewer APs for a given deployment.
Multi User Multiple Input Multiple Output (MU-MIMO) - With support for the 802.11ac Wave 2 standard, the MR42 offers MU-MIMO for efficient transmission to multiple clients. Especially suited for enviroments with numerous mobile devices, MU-MIMO enables multiple clients to receive data simultanously. This increases the total network perfomance and improves the end user experience.
Third radio delivers 24x7 Wireless Security and RF Analytics - The MR42’s sophisticated, dedicated dual-band radio scans the environment continuously, characterizing RF interference and containing wireless threats like rogue access points. No longer choose between wireless security, advanced RF analysis, and serving client data: a dedicated third radio means that all three occur in real-time, without any impact to client traffic or AP throughput.
Bluetooth Low Energy Beacon and Scanning - An integrated fourth radio for Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) provides seamless deployment of BLE Beacon functionality and effortless visibility of BLE devices. The MR42 enables the next generation of locationaware applications while futureproofing your deployment, making it ready for any new customer engagement strategies.
Automatic Cloud-Based RF Optimization - The MR42’s sophisticated, automated RF optimization means that there is no need for the dedicated hardware and RF expertise typically required to tune a
wireless network. The RF analysis data collected by the dedicated third radio is continuously fed back to the Meraki cloud. This then automatically tunes the MR42’s channel selection, transmit power, and client connection settings for optimal performance under even the most challenging RF conditions.
Integrated Enterprise Security and Guest Access - The MR42 features integrated, easy-to-use security technologies to provide secure connectivity for employees and guests alike. Advanced security features such as AES hardware-based encryption and WPA2- Enterprise authentication with 802.1X and Active Directory integration provide wire-like security while still being easy to configure. One-click guest isolation provides secure, Internet-only access for visitors. Our policy firewall (Identity Policy Manager) enables granular access control at the group or device level. PCI compliance reports check network settings against PCI requirements to simplify secure retail deployments.
Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) & Mobile Device Management (MDM) integration - Meraki Systems Manager natively integrates with the MR42 to offer automatic, context-aware security. Systems Manager’s self-service enrollment helps to rapidly deploy MDM without installing additional equipment, and then dynamically tie firewall and traffic shaping policies to client posture.
