Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) with Multigigabit Ethernet
Wi-Fi 6 performance and efficiency, with a dedicated security radio
MR36, MR46, and MR56 provide a set of Wi-Fi 6 access point options for indoor high-density wireless
environments. MR46 and MR56 have the same form factor and capabilities as MR45 and MR55, such as MUMIMO and OFDMA, but add MU-MIMO and OFDMA in the uplink direction. UL-MU-MIMO and UL-OFDMA are
key features for high-density environments with heavy uplink traffic, such as VoIP-heavy enterprise HQ’s, event
spaces, lecture halls, and stadiums.
High Performance 802.11ax Wireless
The Cisco Meraki MR56 is a cloud-managed 8×8:8 802.11ax access point that raises the bar for wireless performance and efficiency. Designed for next-generation deployments in offices, schools, hospitals, shops, and hotels, the MR56 offers high throughput, enterprise-grade security, and simple management.
The MR56 provides a maximum of 5.9 Gbps* aggregate frame rate with concurrent 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radios. A dedicated third radio provides real-time WIDS/WIPS with automated RF optimization, and a fourth integrated radio delivers Bluetooth scanning and beaconing.
With the combination of cloud management, high performance hardware, multiple radios, and advanced software features, the MR56 makes an outstanding platform for the most demanding of uses—including high-density deployments and bandwidth or performance-intensive applications like voice and high-definition video.
MR56 and Meraki Cloud Management
Management of the MR56 is performed through the Meraki cloud, with an intuitive browser-based interface that enables rapid deployment without time-consuming training or costly certifications. Because the MR56 is self-configuring and managed over the web, it can be deployed at a remote location in a matter of minutes, even without on-site IT staff.
24×7 monitoring via the Meraki cloud delivers real-time alerts if a network encounters problems. Remote diagnostic tools enable immediate troubleshooting over the web so that distributed networks can be managed with a minimum of hassle.
The MR56’s firmware is automatically kept up to date via the cloud. New features, bug fixes, and enhancements are delivered seamlessly over the web. This means no manual software updates to download or missing security patches to worry about.
