Meraki MR16 Cloud Managed - wireless access point (MR16-HW )
High performance cloud-managed wireless LAN
The Meraki MR16 is an enterprise class, dual-concurrent 802.11n access point designed for high-density deployments in large offices, schools, hospitals, hotels and large retail stores. The MR16 features dual-concurrent, dual-band operation and advanced 802.11n technologies such as MIMO and beam forming, delivering the high throughput and reliable coverage required by the most demanding business applications like voice and video.
MR16 and Meraki Cloud Management: A Powerful Combo The MR16 is managed via the Meraki cloud, with an intuitive browserbased interface that lets you get up and running quickly without training or certifications. Since the MR16 is self-configuring and managed over the web, you can even deploy the MR16 at a remote location without on-site IT staff.
The MR16 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 multi-site, distributed networks can be managed remotely.
The MR16’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.

Dual enterprise class 802.11n radios, up to 600 Mbps The MR16 features two powerful radios and advanced RF design for enhanced receive sensitivity. Combined with 802.11n technologies including 2x2 MIMO and transmit beamforming, the MR16 delivers up to 600 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. In addition, dualconcurrent 802.11n radios and band steering technology allow MR16 to automatically serve legacy 802.11b/g clients with the 2.4 GHz radio and newer 802.11n clients to the 5 GHz band to provide maximum speed to all clients.
Application-aware traffic shaping The MR16 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 MR16’s advanced mesh technologies like multi-channel routing protocols and multiple gateway support enable scalable, high throughput coverage of hard-to-wire areas with zero configuration. Mesh also improves network reliability - in the event of a switch or cable failure, the MR16 will automatically revert to mesh mode, providing continued gateway connectivity to clients.
Self-configuring, self-optimizing, self-healing When plugged in, the MR16 automatically connects to the Meraki cloud, downloads its configuration, and joins the appropriate network. It self optimizes, determining the ideal channel, transmit power, and client connection parameters. And it self heals, responding automatically to switch failures and other errors.
