Scalably onboard BYOD clients, setting access policies, applying security settings, and deploying enterprise applications.
The threat landscape is constantly evolving, and it's more important than ever to have a security solution that does more than just block malware. Security experts increasingly agree that deep visibility is crucial to maintaining effective network security.
With AMP, a world class malware database is paired with context-aware monitoring and reporting, retrospective malware analysis, and Threat Grid sandboxing to provide an anti-malware solution that does more than just prevent users from downloading malware – it provides comprehensive security before, during, and after a malware attack.
Best of all, integration into the Cisco Meraki cloud dashboard means it's incredibly easy for Meraki MX customers to configure and monitor AMP, or to move seamlessly back and forth between threat intelligence and network management.
High Density WiFi
Cloud Managed Wireless
The MR series is equipped with enterprise-grade features, ideally suited to demanding environments of any scale.
Dedicated dual-band third radio scans the environment continuously, characterizing RF interference and containing wireless threats like rogue access points
Mesh networking extends coverage to hard-to-wire areas and creates a self-healing network that is resilient to cable and switch failures
High-performing 802.11ac MIMO with up to three spatial streams is ideal for HD audio and video, o ering higher speeds over wider bandwidths
Unmatched Visibility & Control
Classify applications, create bandwidth limits, prioritise, restrict, or block traffic with Layer 7 traffic shaping
Configure custom group policies and apply to devices and users easily by device type, VLAN, Active Directory, or RADIUS server
Detect and neutralize wireless threats with Air Marshal, a built-in wireless intrusion prevention (WIPS) solution
Reveal metrics such as visitor capture rate, duration of visit, and repeat visits by scanning for wireless devices with CMX Location Analytics
5 GHz 802.11ac for client data (a/n/ac)
Radio dedicated to Air Marshal & RF scanning (2.4GHz and 5GHz)
Maximum performance and security through unique third radio
3rd radio dedicated to 24x7 Air Marshal (WIDS/WIPS) and 24x7 RF scanning
Serve clients (through other 2 radios) while detecting, sup- pressing rogue APs (via Air Marshal) and constantly scanning the RF spectrum
What is 802.11ac?
Simply put, 802.11ac is similar to 802.11n but it’s newer, faster, and is the next-generation WiFi standard.
How fast can 802.11ac go?
802.11ac’s theoretical 3-stream maximum is 1.3 Gbps. In contrast, 802.11n’s maximum is 450 Mbps, making 802.11ac 3x faster. Keep in mind, only 802.11ac devices can take full advantage of this 1.3 Gbps theoretical top speed.
What makes it so fast?
First, there are wider channels. Instead of the 40 MHz channels used by 11n, 802.11ac doubles the channel bandwidth to 80 MHz. 802.11ac uses a bigger chunk of the 5 GHz spectrum to boost throughput. Another element that improves performance is an enhanced modulation technique, called 256 QAM. Think of modulation as the amount of data transmitted at a given time. 256 QAM allows for more efficient transmission than was possible with 802.11n (64 QAM).

Dual WAN ports with load balancing and failover enable the use of MPLS and/or redundant, commodity Internet connections, providing additional bandwidth and higher reliability.
3G / 4G failover
The Cisco Meraki MX supports 3G/4G service providers globally for WAN connection failover. Web caching temporarily stores video, media, and web documents, lowering bandwidth usage and accelerating the download speed of Internet content.
Layer 7 traffic shaping and application prioritisation optimise the traffic for mission-critical applications and user experience.
Intelligent path control
The MX uses dynamic VPN path selection to choose the best VPN uplink based on packet loss, latency, and jitter. Define policies for sending the right traffic through the appropriate path (e.g., send voice via MPLS, http via VPN over broadband).
Cisco Meraki’s unique auto provisioning site-to-site VPN (Auto VPN) connects sites, and optionally Amazon Web Services, securely with unmatched simplicity. MX Security Appliances automatically learn VPN parameters needed to establish and maintain VPN sessions using 128-bit AES encryption. A unique cloud-enabled discovery mechanism enables automatic interconnection of VPN peers and routes across the WAN, and keeps them updated in dynamic IP environments.
