Meraki MR12 Cloud Managed - wireless access point (MR12-HW )
Incredibly affordable, cloud-managed wireless LAN
The Meraki MR12 is an enterprise class, single-radio 802.11n cloud-managed access point designed for deployments in small-to-medium businesses, home and branch offices, hotels and retail stores. The MR12 uses advanced 802.11n technologies including MIMO, beam forming and channel bonding to deliver the throughput and reliable coverage required by the most demanding business applications.
MR12 and Meraki Cloud Management: A Powerful Combo The MR12 is managed via the Meraki cloud, with an intuitive browser-based interface that lets you get up and running quickly without training or certifications. Since the MR12 is self-configuring and managed over the web, you can even deploy the MR12 at a remote location without on-site IT staff.
The MR12 is monitored 24x7 via the cloud, which delivers real-time alerts if your network encounters problems. Remote diagnostics tools enable real-time troubleshooting over the web, meaning multisite, distributed networks can be managed remotely. The MR12’s firmware is always kept up to date from the cloud. New features, bug fixes, and enhancements are delivered seamlessly over the web, so you never have to manually download software updates or worry about missing security patches.
Enterprise class 802.11n radio, up to 300 Mbps The MR12 features a powerful radio and advanced RF design for enhanced receive sensitivity. Combined with 802.11n technologies including 2x2 MIMO and transmit beamforming, the MR12 delivers up to 300 Mbps throughput and up to 50% increased range compared to typical enterprise class 802.11n access points, meaning fewer access points are required for a given deployment.
Application-aware traffic shaping The MR12 includes an integrated layer 7 packet inspection, classification, and control engine, enabling you to set QoS policies based on traffic type. Prioritize your mission critical applications, while setting limits on recreational traffic, e.g. peer-to-peer and video streaming.
Automatic cloud-based RF optimization with spectrum analysisThe MR12’s sophisticated, automated RF optimization means that there is no need for the dedicated hardware or RF expertise typically required to tune a wireless network. An integrated spectrum analyzer monitors the airspace for neighboring WiFi devices as well as non-802.11 interference – microwave ovens, Bluetooth headsets, etc. The Meraki cloud then automatically optimizes the MR12’s channel selection, transmit power, and client connection settings, providing optimal performance even under challenging RF conditions.
