Our Price: $1,873.59
Ultra High Performance Wi-Fi 6E wireless
Tri-band 802.11ax compatible access point with separate radios dedicated to security, RF management, and Bluetooth coupled with dual Ethernet ports and a USB port for added connectivity options.
Software configurable flex radio architecture for 6GHz support
MR57 supports a software defined flex radio which can be toggled between a 5GHz and 6GHz. This provides an option to operate MR57 in either a dual 5GHz configuration or a true tri-band configuration. Tri-band configuration unlocks the use of new spectrum in the 6GHz frequency range which provides additional channels to increase throughput and reduce interference and noise from legacy devices. 6GHz support ensures that the MR57 supports future technologies.
High Performance 802.11ax compatible wireless
The Cisco Meraki MR57 is a cloud-managed 4x4:4 802.11ax compatible access point that raises the bar for wireless performance and efficiency. Designed for next-generation deployments in offices, schools, hospitals, retail shops, and hotels, the MR57 offers high throughput, enterprise-grade security, and simple management. The MR57 provides a maximum of 8.35 Gbps* aggregate frame rate with concurrent 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz and 6GHz radios. A dedicated fourth radio provides real-time WIDS/WIPS with automated RF optimization, and a fifth integrated IoT radio delivers Bluetooth scanning and beaconing. With the combination of cloud management, high-performance hardware, multiple radios, and advanced software features, the MR57 makes an outstanding platform for the most demanding of uses—including high-density deployments and bandwidth or performance-intensive applications like voice (Cisco WebEx) and highdefinition video.
Support for dual Ethernet ports to enable high availability
MR57 will support dual 5 Gigabit mGig Ethernet ports for high availability or for link aggregation. These ports can also be used for power-sharing to power up the AP and fully support the required functionality. The secondary Ethernet port can also be used for power and data sharing* or in a high availability mode* for added resiliency.
MR57 and Meraki cloud management
Management of the MR57 is through the Meraki cloud, with an intuitive browser-based interface that enables rapid deployment without time-consuming deployment complexity and time consuming staging process. Since the MR57 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. 24x7 monitoring via the Meraki cloud delivers real-time alerts if the network encounters problems. Remote diagnostic tools enable immediate troubleshooting over the web so that distributed networks can be managed with a minimum of hassle. New features, bug fixes, and enhancements are delivered seamlessly over from the Dashboard.

Tri–radio aggregate frame rate of up to 8.35 Gbps*
A 6GHz 4x4:4, 5 GHz 4x4:4 and 2.4 GHz 4x4:4 radio offer a combined tri–radio aggregate frame rate of 8.35 Gbps*, with up to 4,804 Mbps in 6GHz band, 2,402 Mbps 5 GHz band and, 1,147 Mbps / 574 Mbps in the 2.4 GHz band based on 40MHz / 20MHz configuration. Technologies like transmit beamforming and enhanced receive sensitivity allow the MR57 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 MR57 offers DL and UL MU-MIMO and OFDMA for more efficient transmission to multiple clients. Especially suited to environments with numerous mobile devices, MU-MIMO and OFDMA enables multiple clients to receive data simultaneously. This increases the total network performance and improves the end user experience.
Bluetooth Low Energy Beacon and scanning radio
An integrated Bluetooth radio provides seamless deployment of BLE Beacon functionality and effortless visibility of Bluetooth devices. The MR57 enables the next generation of location-aware applications while future proofing deployments, ensuring it’s ready for any new customer engagement strategies.
Automatic cloud-based RF optimization
The MR57’s sophisticated and automated RF optimization means that there is no need for the dedicated hardware and RF expertise typically required to tune a wireless network. The RF data collected by the dedicated fourth radio is continuously fed back to the Meraki cloud. This data is then used to automatically tune the channel selection, transmit power, and client connection settings for optimal performance under even the most challenging RF conditions.
Integrated enterprise security and guest access
The MR57 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 Enterprise authentication with 802.1X and Active Directory integration provide wired-like security while still being easy to configure. MR57 will also support 192-bit encryption along with WPA3 support for added security of the wireless network. One-click guest isolation provides secure, Internet-only access for visitors. PCI compliance reports check network settings against PCI requirements to simplify secure retail deployments.
Dedicated scanning radio delivers 24x7 Air Marshal and RF analytics
The MR57’s dedicated dual-band scanning and security radio continually asses the environment, characterizing RF interference and containing (in 2.4GHz and 5GHz only, since 6GHz mandates PMF) wireless threats like rogue access points. There’s no need to choose between wireless security (AirMarshal), advanced RF analysis, and serving client data - a dedicated fourth radio means that all functions occur in real-time, without any impact to client traffic or AP throughput.
Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) & Mobile Device Management (MDM) integration
Meraki Systems Manager natively integrates with the MR57 to offer automatic, context-aware security. Systems Manager’s self-service enrollment helps to rapidly deploy MDM without installing additional equipment, and then dynamically tie firewall and traffic shaping policies to client posture.
Application-aware traffic shaping
The MR57 includes an integrated layer 7 packet inspection, classification, and control engine, enabling the configuration of QoS policies based on traffic type, helping to prioritize mission critical applications while setting limits on recreational traffic like peer-to-peer and video streaming. Policies can be implemented per network, per SSID, per user group, or per individual user for maximum flexibility and control.
Voice and video optmizations
Industry-standard QoS features are built-in and easy to configure. Wireless Multimedia (WMM) access categories, 802.1p, and DSCP standards support, all ensure important applications get prioritized correctly, not only on the MR57, but on other devices in the network. Unscheduled Automatic Power Save Delivery (U-APSD) and new Target Wait Time features in 802.11ax clients ensure minimal battery drain on wireless VoIP phones.
Self-configuring, self-maintaining, always up-to-date
When plugged in, the MR57 automatically connects to the Meraki cloud, downloads its configuration, and joins the appropriate network. Administrators can schedule automatic firmware upgrades for their Dashboard network seamlessly. This ensures the network is kept up-to-date with bug fixes, security updates, and new features.
MR57 will support all the latest and greatest analytics in order to provide machine learning based anomaly detection, server root cause analysis, wireless client scoring based on performance and connectivity metrics and network benchmarking for networks of similar size and vertical. Along with these features MR57 will provides advanced location analytics via API and graphs in Dashboard to provide a clear picture of client density and their movement across the floor plan.
