The last decade has seen Wi-Fi grow to reach shocking milestones, with over $2 trillion of economic value delivered. This new decade is on track to be the era of Wi-Fi dominance, as 59% of all internet traffic will use the technology. The next 10 years will see new device types, and diverse high-density wireless environments.
To that end, the new Meraki Wi-Fi 6 portfolio has been announced and has the following new Wi-Fi 6 Access Points :-
- MR36 is Meraki’s 2×2 Wi-Fi 6 access point, designed for high-performance requirements, and large scale deployments with an eye on value.
- MR46 is Meraki’s 4×4 Wi-Fi 6 access point, which will serve high-density, high-performance environments.
- MR56 is Meraki’s 8×8 Wi-Fi 6 access point, designed for ultra high-density, and ultra high-performance.
The three Wi-Fi 6 models feature all of the newest 802.11ax capabilities, including OFDMA and MU-MIMO for both downlink and uplink. These features are critical for environments with large amounts of wireless clients and high bandwidth requirements.
For example, Meraki access points at the U.S. Open last year saw vast amounts of uplink traffic, as 200,000 attendees uploaded photos and videos to social media and iCloud.
The Meraki cloud will help deliver Wi-Fi 6 at scale across distributed sites and large quantities of mobile devices.
Armed with Wi-Fi 6, IT admins can meet performance levels across a broad range of challenging Wi-Fi environments. For example, 4K video or new applications such as VR and AR require extremely low latency wireless.
These new access points will provide an immersive wireless experience for those using these emerging technologies. Wi-Fi 6 delivers this performance, even in dense environments such as corporate headquarters, auditoriums, event halls, or retail stores.
Smart Wireless can now offer the new Wi-Fi 6 range for immediate order and can offer expert design, delivery, troubleshooting and support services from our in-house team
