Antennas

Choose the antenna based on the install location and designed area of coverage. The datasheet includes a list of certified antennas. These are listed for sale on the product page.
3rd party antennas may be used but it is the responsibility of the end customer/partner to ensure operation is within regulatory compliance.

The MR53E is certified for use with the following Meraki indoor antennas:

  • MA-ANT-3-A1/6 (1/6 stands for the quantity of the antennas)
  • MA-ANT-3-B1/6 (1/6 stands for the quantity of the antennas)
  • MA-ANT-3-C6 (6 stands for the number of ports for the antennas)
  • MA-ANT-3-D6 (6 stands for the number of ports for the antennas)
  • MA-ANT-3-E6 (6 stands for the number of ports for the antennas)
  • MA-ANT-3-F6 (6 stands for the number of ports for the antennas)

These antennas come with RP-TNC connectors compatible with the MR53E.

Connecting MA-ANT-3-A/B series antennas

The MA-ANT-3-A/B series antennas are dipole omnidirectional antennas that may be connected to any of the antenna connectors on the MR53E, order is not important.

Connecting MA-ANT-3-C/D/E/F series antennas

The MA-ANT-3-C/D/E/F antennas will come with six antenna cables with RP-TNC connectors that connect into the six antenna ports on top of the access point. Five antenna cables have a white jacket just above the RP-TNC connector and should connect into the four 2.4/5 GHz antenna ports and one Scanning antenna port. One of the antenna cables will have a grey jacket above the RP-TNC connector and should connect into the IoT antenna port.

C/D/E/F series antennas will be automatically detected by the AP. Once an antenna is detected by the AP it cannot be changed in dashboard until the antenna is removed and AP is rebooted.

It is important to ensure that all six antenna ports on the MR53E are connected to their respective antenna cables for maximum performance and functionality.

Antenna selection

Meraki offers a number of antenna options for the MR53E access point. The MR53E features dual band antenna ports thus dual band antennas should be paired with the AP. Below is a highlight of the different antenna types and their applications. It is always best practice to consult with a Cisco SE or Partner in to select the best antenna for the unique design.

Dipole Antenna

The Dipole antenna is ideal for low ceiling installations where wall penetration or extended reach are important. Some example use cases are low-density deployments like schools and hotels to provide basic connectivity. These types of best-effort deployments usually have APs installed on walls or uneven surfaces. This antenna can be purchased bendable or straight.

Omni Directional

Omni directional antennas are best for pole mounts applications and for mesh networks. Use omni directional antennas when designing to cover 360 degrees around the Access Point.

 

Patch Antenna

Patch antennas are ideal for Access points mounted on a high ceiling and is intended to cover a large space. This antenna is ideal for warehouses.

 




  • It looks like your shopping cart is worth enough to Cisco that we can get a discount for your order.

    That might be worth about 7% to you.

    We can get this discount by registering the deal. The conditions are:

    1- nobody else has registered the same (or a similar) deal for the same end user, and
    2- the basket is worth at least US$5000 Cisco list price. We don't charge Cisco List price: if the MerakiStore total is about £2500 +VAT, that's probably about $5000 Cisco list.

    Deal registration takes 3-4 days, so if you have the time, and if another CIsco partner hasn't already registered the deal, you might want to ask for a quote instead of checking out now.
