The MR20 is Meraki’s entry level dual-radio, 100% cloud-managed access point. It is a 2×2:2 802.11ac PoE appliance with MU-MIMO support. As such, the MR20 is excellent for basic, very low-density deployments. It delivers a maximum 1.3 Gbps aggregate frame rate with concurrent 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radios. The combination of intuitive cloud management, 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless, and business-class security mean safe WiFi for your home office or small business networks looking for basic connectivity.
Out of the box, the MR20 needs to be configured in your Meraki Cloud Management portal. But don’t worry, it has a very user-friendly interface where you can easily enter all the settings your access point needs. Then, you simply connect the device to your network. And, since it’s a PoE device, you have only one cable providing power and data. This simplifies things even further.
If you configure your MR20 in the Meraki Cloud, you just plug it in and power it on. It’s that simple. Your AP will update with its configuration, installing any firmware updates at the same time. This usually takes about 10 to 30 minutes. Of course, further updates are scheduled well in advance and come of no surprise when they happen.
The MR20 is a flat-out super-easy way to manage a far away branch network. It is easy on the wallet, and helps to manage your network remotely without an IT guru on site. At the same time, the MR20 gives users the ability to connect wirelessly to our network.
The Meraki MR20 is a very good access point for small to medium sites in low-to-moderate RF traffic environments. It gives you the ease of clean, simple, safe cloud-management.
