Meraki MR72 802.11ac Outdoor Access Point

Real-Time Cloud Management

Custom-designed real time tunnel and

seamless high-availability

Meraki's patented real time communication protocols enable administrators to manage networks from the cloud, without sacrificing control and responsiveness. Meraki has developed a purpose-built protocol that delivers rich bi-directional information securely, with minimal bandwidth overhead.


Meraki devices — wireless APs, switches, and security appliances — provide a rich stream of real time information to the Meraki cloud. This communication is key to the extensive visibility and control afforded by the Meraki platform. Instead of burdening the network with high overhead, poor responsiveness, and complex configuration, Meraki engineers developed and patented a lightweight, secure, zero-configuration control tunnel that provides rich real-time data without compromising efficiency.


The award-winning Meraki cloud management architecture provides powerful and intuitive centralized management, while eliminating the cost and complexity of traditional on-site wireless controllers. Seamlessly manage 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 interface, Meraki WLANs configure in minutes without training

or dedicated staff. Adding new sites to a network takes minutes, not hours or days, and there's no need to train additional staff to monitor or manage the remote networks. Meraki devices self-provision, enabling large campus and multi-site deployments without on-site IT.


Meraki's control tunnel supports seamless high availability. Every Meraki network is backed by at least three independent datacenters, and the management tunnel between Meraki devices and the cloud automatically connects to the right datacenters, handling failover seamlessly.

RF Optimization

Mesh Routing

Meraki's powerful, automated RF optimization system delivers high performance in high density environments and under challenging interference conditions. Meraki access points feature a third radio dedicated to continuously and automatically monitoring surroundings to maximize Wi-Fi performance, automatically optimizing the performance of individual APs.

Mesh networking, included in every Meraki AP, extends coverage to hard-to-wire areas and creates a self-healing network that is resilient to cable and switch failures. Meraki pioneered high performance mesh routing, with technologies such as multi-radio routing and per-flow analysis that optimize Meraki's mesh for performance and reliability.

Application QoS

Bonjour Gateway

Meraki's integrated Layer 7 fingerprinting and application QoS automatically identifies and controls hundreds of applications, from business apps to BitTorrent and YouTube. A modular and flexible packet processing engine delivers consistent, high-performance application traffic shaping within product families and across product lines. This custom-built technology identifies and controls hundreds of applications.

Integrating Bonjour devices and services into education and enterprise networks needn't be complex. Meraki natively integrates Bonjour support and selectively bridge services across subnets, intelligently enabling large-scale deployments without overloading the network.

Air Marshal / WIPS

Seamless Mobility

Air Marshal is Meraki's wireless intrusion prevention (WIPS) solution. Integrated into every Meraki access point and centrally managed from the cloud, Air Marshal detects and neutralizes wireless threats, delivering state of the art protection to the most security conscious distributed networks.

The ability to roam seamlessly within a campus environment is fundamental to today’s collaborative spaces. Wireless users expect to be able to use applications on-the-go, including latency-sensitive apps like voice and video. Meraki APs support seamless roaming, operating in gateway mode or as part of a wireless mesh.

CMX Location Analytics
