High Performance 802.11ax Wireless
The Cisco Meraki MR46E is a cloud-managed 4×4:4 802.11ax access point that raises the bar for wireless performance and efficiency. Designed for nextgeneration deployments in offices, schools, hospitals, shops, and hotels, the MR46E offers high throughput, enterprise-grade security, and simple management.
The MR46E provides a maximum of 3.55 Gbps aggregate frame rate with concurrent 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radios. A dedicated third radio provides real-time WIDS/WIPS with automated RF optimization, and a fourth integrated radio delivers Bluetooth scanning and beaconing.
With the combination of cloud management, high performance hardware, multiple radios, and advanced software features, the MR46E makes an outstanding platform for the most demanding of uses-including high-density deployments and bandwidth or performance-intensive applications like voice and high-definition video.
MR46E and Meraki Cloud Management
Management of the MR46E is performed through the Meraki cloud, with an intuitive browser-based interface that enables rapid deployment without timeconsuming training or costly certifications. Because the MR46E is self-configuring and managed over the web, it can be deployed at a remote location in a matter of minutes, even without on-site IT staff.
24×7 monitoring via the Meraki cloud delivers real-time alerts if a network encounters problems. Remote diagnostic tools enable immediate troubleshooting over the web so that distributed networks can be managed with a minimum of hassle.
The MR36’s firmware is automatically kept up to date via the cloud. New features, bug fixes, and enhancements are delivered seamlessly over the web. This means no manual software updates to download or missing security patches to worry about.

Dual-radio aggregate frame rate of up to 3.55 Gbps
5 GHz 4×4:4 radio and 2.4 GHz 4×4:4 radio offer a combined dual-radio aggregate frame rate of 3.55 Gbps, with up to 2,402 Mbps in the 5 GHz band and 1,148 Mbps in the 2.4 GHz band. Technologies like transmit beamforming and enhanced receive sensitivity allow the MR46E to support a higher client density than typical enterprise-class access points, resulting in better performance for more clients, from each AP.
Multi User Multiple Input Multiple Output (MU-MIMO)
With support for features of 802.11ax, the MR46E offers MU-MIMO and OFDMA for more efficient transmission to multiple clients. Especially suited to environments with numerous mobile devices, MU-MIMO enables multiple clients to receive data simultaneously. This increases the total network performance and improves the end user experience.
