Meraki MR24 Dual-Radio 3x3 MIMO 802.11n Access Point (MR24-HW)
Ultra-high performance cloud-managed wireless LAN
The Meraki MR24 is an enterprise class, dual-concurrent 3x3 MIMO 802.11n access point designed for high-density deployments in large offices, schools, hospitals and hotels that require premium performance. The MR24 features dual-concurrent, dual-band operation with the unprecedented speed of 3x3 MIMO 802.11n with three spatial streams, delivering the ultra-high throughput and reliable coverage required by the most demanding business applications like voice and high-definition streaming video.
MR24 and Meraki Cloud Management: A Powerful Combo The MR24 is managed through the Meraki cloud, with an intuitive browser-based interface that enables rapid deployment without training or certifications. Since the MR24 is self-configuring and managed over the web, it can even be deployed at a remote location without on-site IT staff.
The MR24 is monitored 24x7 via the Meraki cloud, which delivers real-time alerts if the network encounters problems. Remote diagnostics tools enable real-time troubleshooting over the web, meaning multi-site, distributed networks can be managed remotely.
The MR24’s firmware is always kept up to date from the cloud. New features, bug fixes, and enhancements are delivered seamlessly over the web, meaning no manual software updates to download or missing security patches to worry about

Dual 3x3 MIMO 802.11n radios, up to 900 Mbps The MR24 is the first 3x3 MIMO enterprise access point to use three spatial streams. This advanced radio technology enables the MR24 to provide up to 450 Mbps of throughput per radio, for a combined 900 Mbps. Technologies like transmit beamforming and enhanced receive sensitivity give the MR24 increased range compared to typical enterprise-class access points, resulting in fewer required APs for a given deployment. In addition, the MR24 uses band steering to automatically serve 5 GHz-capable clients with the 5 GHz radio, maximizing capacity in the 2.4 GHz range for older 802.11b/g clients.
Application-aware traffic shaping The MR24 includes an integrated layer 7 packet inspection, classification, and control engine, enabling you to set QoS policies based on traffic type. Integrated support for Wireless Multi Media (WMM) and 802.1p DSCP tagging. Prioritize your mission critical applications, while setting limits on recreational traffic, e.g., peer-topeer and video streaming.
High performance mesh The MR24’s advanced mesh technologies like multi-channel routing protocols and multiple gateway support make it possible to cover hard-to-wire areas and improve network resilience. In the event of a switch or cable failure, the MR24 will automatically revert to mesh mode.
Self-configuring, self-optimizing, self-healing When plugged in, the MR24 automatically connects to the Meraki Enterprise Cloud Controller, downloads its configuration, and joins the appropriate network. It self optimizes, determining the ideal channel, transmit power, and client connection parameters. It self heals, responding automatically to switch failures and other errors.
