We can think of no better way to end this amazing year and ring in 2017 than by introducing some exciting new Cisco Meraki products. Today Meraki announced a significant refresh of their access switching portfolio and two sleek, new access points.
The full lineup in this latest launch includes:
Why a wall plate access point? We’re glad you asked. The MR30H’s form factor — which sports four integrated gigabit switch ports — has been heavily sought - particularly from the hospitality industry. Wall plates are perfect for use cases where aesthetics matter and extra ports are needed to service IP-enabled devices like VoIP phones or IPTVs in the immediate vicinity of the AP.

The MR30H is built on a 2×2:2 802.11ac Wave 2 architecture, so can take advantage of Multi-User MIMO to simultaneously service two client devices. This makes the AP more efficient than an Wave 1 AP with equivalent specs.
The MR33 is an 802.11ac Wave 2 update for those who want robust wireless but don’t need support for high density scenarios. Like the MR30H, the MR33 is a 2×2:2 802.11ac Wave 2 access point, and it is one of the smallest we manufacture (the MR30H is smaller).

We are also announcing a major update to our access switching portfolio, with the addition of stacking and 10G SFP+ uplinks on all new models – at the same price point.

The MS225 and MS250 are both designed for branch & campus deployments while the MS250 offers field replaceable power supplies and Layer 3 features.
