Power Cords shipping with products

Currently, Cisco Meraki includes US power cords in the box with all of their MX and MS products. Unfortunately, this leads to a great deal of waste and a poor out-of-box experience for customers in other regions. To correct this, an AC power cord (MA-PWR-CORD-US) will no longer be included with all MX and MS models, as of May 1, 2017.

However, for USA delivered orders - while the power cord is no longer included in the box, we will automatically add it without charge to every MX or MS product that doesn’t have 1 or more cords associated with the order. 

Please note, if you add a cord to the order, we will honor and ship the quantity requested and you will be billed.  For instance, if the order has 50 switches, and no power cords are detected on the order in our system, we will automatically add 50 cords without charge.  However, if the order has 50 switches and only 1 power cord, we will only ship the 1 power cord that is selected and the cost of the cord will be added to the bill.

Please note, MS Switches with support for removable power supplies will continue to ship with one power supply (PSU) included. MX64 and MX65 units will include power adapters, without the AC power cord. The cord should be ordered using the part number listed above.

New MR33 Access Point - the standard for Meraki WiFi

The MR33 brings 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless to everyone at a new cheaper price point.

Last week Meraki were thrilled to announce the launch of several new switching and wireless products, including our latest wireless access point, the MR30H: a wall plate AP with integrated switch ports designed for in-room hospitality deployments, higher education dormitories, and other multi-dwelling use cases.

Also included in this launch was their newest 802.11ac Wave 2 access point for general-purpose wireless: the MR33.

Meraki MR33

The new Cisco Meraki MR33 wireless access point.

The newest addition to the Meraki entry-level portfolio takes advantage of Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) capabilities that have become available in the new, 11ac Wave 2 wireless standards. MU-MIMO improves the efficiency of an AP because it allows multiple client devices to be served simultaneously.  Before MU-MIMO, an access point could only respond to one client device at a time, albeit at such a rapid speed that it might seem as if multiple devices were being addressed at once. The MR33 sports a 2×2:2-stream MU-MIMO architecture, meaning it can serve 2 concurrent client devices.

The MR33 is also a sleek size - it’s roughly half the volume of an MR32 (in fact, it easily fits inside an MR32 case — and also a back pocket).

MR30H Hospitality Access Point and new MS225 Switches

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:

  • MR30H: a new wall plate access point with integrated switch ports designed specifically for hospitality and certain multi-dwelling use cases, like university dorms
  • MR33: an 802.11ac Wave 2 access point that is half the size of an MR32
  • MS225 & MS250: A new generation of Meraki stackable access switches with 10G SFP+ uplinks and field-replaceable power options

 

Wireless

MR30H

 
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.

Meraki for hospitality

The new Cisco Meraki MR30H wall plate access point.

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.

MR33

 
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).

Switching

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.

MS_stack

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