The Cisco Meraki MR18 is an industry-first three-radio, cloud managed 2x2 MIMO 802.11n access point designed for deployments in offices, schools, hospitals, hotels, and large retail stores. The MR18 features dual-concurrent, dual-band operation and advanced 802.11n technologies such as MIMO and beam forming, delivering the high throughput and reliable coverage required by demanding business applications like voice and video. Not only does the MR18 provide speeds of up to 600 Mbps with two concurrent 2x2:2 MIMO radios, but also delivers unprecedented security and spectrum visibility via a third radio dedicated to 24x7 WIDS/WIPS
and advanced RF analytics.

MR18 and Meraki Cloud Management: A Powerful Combo
The MR18 is managed via the Meraki cloud, with an intuitive browser-based interface that lets you get up and running quickly without training or certifications. Since the MR18 is self-configuring and managed over the web, it can even be deployed at a remote location without on-site IT staff.

The MR18 is monitored 24x7 via the cloud, which delivers real-time alerts if your network encounters problems. Remote diagnostics tools enable real-time troubleshooting over the web, meaning multi-site, distributed networks can be managed remotely.

The MR18’s firmware is always kept up to date from the cloud. New features, bug fixes, and enhancements are delivered seamlessly over the web, meaning no manual software updates to download
or missing security patches to worry about.

ual enterprise class 802.11n radios, up to 600 Mbps
The MR18 features two powerful radios and advanced RF design for
enhanced receive sensitivity. Combined with 802.11n technologies
including 2x2 MIMO and transmit beamforming, the MR18 delivers
data rates of up to 600 Mbps and enhanced coverage, meaning
fewer access points are required for a given deployment. In addition,
the MR18 uses band steering to automatically serve 5 GHz-capable
clients with the 5 GHz radio, maximizing capacity in the 2.4 GHz
range for older 802.11b/g and 2.4 GHz-only clients

Dedicated third radio delivers 24x7 wireless security
and RF analytics*
The MR18’s dedicated dual-band third radio scans the environment
continuously, characterizing RF interference and containing wireless
threats like rogue access points. No more need to choose between
wireless security, advanced RF analysis, and serving client data: a
dedicated third radio means that all three occur in real-time, without
any impact to client traffic or AP throughput.


Application-aware traffic shaping
The MR18 includes an integrated layer 7 packet inspection,
classification, and control engine, enabling QoS policies based on
traffic type. Integrated support for Wireless Multi Media (WMM) and
802.1p DSCP tagging. Prioritize your mission critical applications,
while setting limits on recreational traffic, e.g., peer-to-peer and
video streaming.

Automatic RF optimization with spectrum analysis
The MR18’s sophisticated, automated RF optimization means that
there is no need for the dedicated hardware and RF expertise
typically required to tune a wireless network. An integrated spectrum
analyzer monitors the airspace for neighboring WiFi devices as
well as non-802.11 interference – microwave ovens, Bluetooth
headsets, etc. The Meraki cloud then automatically optimizes the
MR18’s channel selection, transmit power, and client connection
settings, providing optimal performance even under challenging RF

Integrated enterprise security and guest access
The MR18 features integrated, easy-to-use security technologies
to provide secure connectivity for employees and guests alike.
Advanced security features such as AES hardware-based
encryption and WPA2-Enterprise authentication with 802.1X and
Active Directory integration provide wire-like security while still
being easy to configure. One-click guest isolation provides secure,
Internet-only access for visitors. The integrated policy firewall
(Identity Policy Manager) enables granular group or device-based
access control. Meraki Teleworker VPN makes it easy to extend
the corporate LAN to remote sites, without requiring clients and
devices to have client VPN software. PCI compliance reports check
network settings against PCI requirements to simplify secure retail


Secure wireless environments 24x7 using Air Marshal
There’s no need to choose between a wireless intrusion prevention
system (WIPS) and serving client data: thanks to the dedicated
third radio, Air Marshal, a highly optimized built-in WIPS, scans
continuously for threats and remediates them as commanded,
all without disrupting client service. Alarms and auto-containment
of malicious and rogue APs are configured via flexible remediation
policies, ensuring optimal security and performance in even the most
challenging wireless environments.

High performance mesh
The MR18’s advanced mesh technologies like multi-channel
routing protocols and multiple gateway support enable scalable,
high throughput coverage of hard-to-wire areas with zero
configuration. Mesh also improves network reliability – in the event
of a switch or cable failure, the MR18 will automatically revert to
mesh mode, providing continued gateway connectivity to clients.

Self-configuring, self-optimizing, self-healing
When plugged in, the MR18 automatically connects to the Meraki
cloud, downloads its configuration, and joins the appropriate
network. It self optimizes, determining the ideal channel, transmit
power, and client connection parameters. It also self heals,
responding automatically to switch failures and other errors.

Low profile, environmentally friendly design
Despite its incredible power and feature set, the MR18 is the lowest
profile 802.11n access point available – at just one inch thick, it
blends seamlessly into any environment. In addition to looking great,
the MR18 is earth friendly: we’ve eliminated excess packaging and
documentation, and 90% of the access point materials are recyclable.
A maximum power draw of only 9.8 watts and a cloud-managed
architecture mean that pollution, material utilization and electricity
bills are minimized.
