The Meraki MX security appliances provide a complete cloud-managed security solution in a single box, including features such as: next generation firewall protection, intrusion prevention, automatic VPN, content filtering, anti-malware/anti-phishing, and it also provides high availability failover to its users.
Meraki MS switches support multi-gigabit Ethernet allowing for better performance, especially from the latest access points. Flexible stacking is a key component of the MS line, allowing configuration of many ports across standalone and physically stacked switches regardless of location. This product line, allows for visibility of Layer 7, making understanding network resource use easy. QoS is available for latency sensitive applications, thus providing the priority and bandwidth required for great performance.
MR Access Point Line
Meraki MR Access points are built for performance by supporting 802.11n and 802.11ac standards. By providing variable transmit power radios using radio chipsets the MR line is able to increase RF propagation in both 2.4GHz and 5GHz. The MR line has an enhanced receive sensitivity providing lower powered WLAN clients with a better wireless experience. MR access points also contain a dedicated security radio that scans and protects against security threats.
