Meraki MR34 3x3 MIMO 802.11ac Access Point
Ultra-high performance cloud-managed 802.11ac wireless
The Cisco Meraki MR34 is an industry-first three-radio, cloudmanaged 3x3 MIMO 802.11ac access point. Designed for highdensity next-generation deployments in large offices, schools, hospitals and hotels, the MR34 provides the highest performance, security, and manageability.
The MR34 provides not only a blazing 1.75 Gbps throughput with concurrent 802.11ac and 802.11n 3x3:3 MIMO radios, but also unprecedented security and spectrum visibility via a third radio dedicated to 24x7 WIDS/WIPS and advanced RF analytics.
The combination of cloud management, 802.11ac, and integrated fulltime RF environment scanning delivers the ultra-high throughput and reliability required by the most demanding business applications like voice and high-definition streaming video, both today and tomorrow.

Aggregate data rate of up to 1.75 Gbps
A 1.3 Gbps 5 GHz 3x3 802.11ac radio and a 450 Mbps 2.4 GHz 3x3 802.11n radio offer a combined aggregate dual-band throughput of 1.75 Gbps. Technologies like transmit beamforming and enhanced receive sensitivity allow the MR34 to support a higher client density than the typical enterprise-class access points, resulting in fewer required APs for a given deployment. Band steering further enhances overall throughput, by moving 5 GHz-capable clients to the 5 GHz radio, maximizing the capacity in the 2.4 GHz range for older 802.11b/g clients.
Dedicated third radio delivers 24x7 wireless security and RF analytics
The MR34’s sophisticated, dedicated dual-band third radio scans the environment continuously, characterizing RF interference and containing wireless threats like rogue access points. No more need to 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.
Secure wireless environments using 24x7 Air Marshal
No longer choose between a wireless intrusion prevention system (WIPS) and serving client data: thanks to the dedicated third radio, Meraki’s Air Marshal, a highly optimized built-in WIPS, scans continuously for threats and remediates them as commanded, all without disrupting client service. Alarms and auto-containment of malicious rogue APs are configured via flexible remediation policies, ensuring optimal security and performance in even the most challenging wireless environments.
Self-configuring, self-optimizing, self-healing
When plugged in, the MR34 automatically connects to the Meraki cloud, downloads its configuration, and joins the appropriate network. The MR34 then self-optimizes, determining the ideal channel, transmit power, and client connection parameters. As necessary, it will also self-heal, responding automatically to switch failures and other errors.
