Meraki MR66 - Wireless Access Point (MR66-HW )
High performance, ruggedized, outdoor cloud-managed wireless LAN
The Meraki MR66 is an enterprise class, dual-concurrent 802.11n cloud managed access point designed for high-density deployments in harsh outdoor locations and industrial indoor environments. The MR66 features dual-concurrent, dual-band operation and advanced 802.11n technologies such as MIMO and beamforming, delivering the high capacity, throughput and reliable coverage required by the most demanding business applications, even in harsh environments.
MR66 and Meraki Cloud Management: A Powerful Combination The MR66 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 MR66 is self-configuring and managed over the web, it can even be deployed at a remote location without on-site IT staff.
The MR66 is monitored 24x7 via the cloud, which delivers real-time alerts if your network encounters problems. Remote diagnostics tools also enable real-time troubleshooting over the web.
The MR66’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 MR66 features two powerful radios and advanced RF design for enhanced receive sensitivity. Combined with 802.11n technologies including MIMO and beamforming, the MR66 delivers up to 600 Mbps throughput and up to 50% increased capacity compared to typical rugged enterprise-class 802.11g access points, meaning fewer access points are required for a given deployment. In addition, dual-concurrent 802.11n radios and band steering technology allow the MR66 to automatically serve legacy 802.11b/g clients using the 2.4 GHz radio and newer 802.11n clients using the 5 GHz radio, thus providing maximum speed to all clients.
Rugged industrial design The MR66 is designed and tested for salt spray, vibration, extreme thermal conditions, shock and dust and is IP67-rated, making it ideal for extreme environments. Despite its rugged design, MR66 has a low profile and is easy to deploy.
Application-aware traffic shaping The MR66 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.
High performance mesh The MR66’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 MR66 will automatically revert to mesh mode, providing continued gateway connectivity to clients.
Self-configuring, self-optimizing, self-healing When plugged in, the MR66 automatically connects to the Meraki cloud, downloads its configuration, and joins your network. It self optimizes, determining the ideal channel, transmit power, and client connection parameters. It also self heals, responding automatically to switch failures and other errors.
