Device Management

Powerful device management tools to control the clients on your network. Centrally manage iOS devices, Windows PCs, and Macs. Set security policies for the iPads, iPhones, and iPods owned by your organization, and centrally manage the applications installed on them, pushing new apps and updates to any number of devices. Control Macs and PCs, tracking inventory, pushing software, and even troubleshooting with built-in remote desktop. Device management is fully integrated available at no additional cost.

High Performance Mesh Routing

Mesh networking – the ability for APs not wired into the LAN to act as repeaters – is included in every Meraki AP. Mesh allows for two powerful use cases: extending coverage to hard to wire areas, and providing a self-healing network that is resilient to cable and switch failures. Meraki pioneered high performance mesh routing, with behind-the-scene technologies such as multi-radio routing and per-flow analysis that makes Meraki’s mesh faster and more reliable.

High Capacity 802.11n

802.11n APs provide high capacity wireless in dense, demanding environments. Meraki APs are custom-designed for cloud management. Built with enhanced CPU and memory capabilities, Meraki APs deliver rich services including Layer 7 Application QoS and NAC at the network edge. Industry-leading 3-stream 802.11n MIMO delivers radio rates of up to 900 Mbps, while cloud-based RF optimization with spectrum analysis ensures that Meraki APs are automatically tuned for highest performance.

Enterprise Security

Complete out-of-the-box enterprise class security. Segment wireless users, applications, and devices; secure your network from attacks; and enforce the right policies for each class of users. Meraki’s built-in stateful policy firewall, 802.1X/RADIUS support, and native Active Directory integration deliver fine-grained access control, while Meraki’s Guest Access Firewall provides secure, Internet-only guest WiFi in just one click. With built-in features like Network Access Control (NAC) and Wireless Intrusion Detection and Prevention (WIDS/WIPS), Meraki enables secure wireless environments without complex setup or systems integration. Meraki WLANs are fully HIPAA and PCI compliant.

Guest WiFi

Secure, easy to manage guest access out-of-the-box – without extra appliances, licenses, or complex VLAN configurations. Meraki’s built-in firewall and DHCP server provide a complete guest WiFi solution, enabling secure, Internet-only access that protects your LAN and other clients from virus or information leaks. Meraki also provides cloud-hosted, customizable splash pages, bandwidth limits, on-the-fly guest logins, and even content filtering, allowing you to customize your guest experience.

Control Applications, Users, and Devices

The only wireless LAN to include Layer 7 fingerprinting and application QoS. Identify hundreds of applications, from business apps to Bit Torrent and YouTube. Prioritize critical apps like VoIP, and limit or block wasteful bandwidth consumption such as P2P file sharing. Apply policies by device type, automatically assigning VLAN tags, traffic shaping rules, bandwidth limits, and firewall policies to iPads and other device types. And user fingerprinting with Google-like search allows administrators to easily identify and control individual users, iPads, Androids, and other devices.

Centrally Managed from the Cloud

Meraki's award-winning Cloud Controller provides powerful and intuitive centralized management, while eliminating the cost and complexity of traditional on-site wireless controllers. Meraki’s Cloud Controller seamlessly manages campus-wide WiFi deployments and distributed multi-site networks with zero-touch access point provisioning, network-wide visibility and control, cloud-based RF optimization, seamless firmware updates and more. With an intuitive browser-based user interface, Meraki WLANs configure in minutes - not days or weeks - without training or dedicated staff.
