MG41/41E Datasheet

By Unni Rajagopalan

Overview 

Connectivity is critical for any organization that depends on reliable internet access in order to function. Wireless WAN connectivity options, such as cellular networks, serve as a reliable backup internet uplink in the event of a primary uplink failure. 

The MG41 cellular gateway simplifies the path to wireless WAN connectivity and makes cellular a viable uplink option for many networks. The MG41 acts as a gateway to the internet cellular networks by converting LTE signal from a cellular provider to an Ethernet handoff, which can be used as an internet uplink for a variety of use-cases. 

MG41 can work with any routing device, Meraki or non-Meraki. With additional 802.3af compatibility, the MG can be placed anywhere and powered via power over ethernet (PoE) like any access point. This gives users the option for optimal physical placement for signal quality  - a cornerstone for wireless WAN communications.

 

MG series and Meraki Cloud Management: A Powerful Combo

All Meraki devices are managed via the Meraki cloud, with an intuitive browser-based interface. The MG series are self-configuring and managed over the web, and  can be rapidly deployed at remote locations without any assistance from end-users.

Meraki Cloud services monitor all devices 24x7 and deliver real-time alerts if any devices encounter a problem. Remote diagnostics tools enable real-time troubleshooting through any web browser. New features and enhancements are delivered seamlessly over the web, so you never have to manually download software updates or worry about missing critical security vulnerability patches.

    • DM logging via Local Status Page

The MG41 cellular gateway uses 6 to 8 megabytes a day of data for telemetry on dashboard and connection monitoring when the unit is idle. Any additional Cisco Meraki devices that are added to the MG41 may increase data usage further. Cisco Meraki products are cloud connected devices that report telemetry into Dashboard for network monitoring purposes. The usage will be reduced in future firmware updates.

Use Cases 

Note that the following use-cases refer to using a Meraki MX appliance with the MG41 as a WAN uplink. However, the use-cases can also apply to non-Meraki devices.

  • Antenna placement where cellular coverage is best 

    • Signal strength is key for cellular performance. The MG41 makes cellular a viable option in situations where the best location for the MX is not necessarily the best location  for a strong cellular signal. The separation of cellular antenna and MX expands cellular options for all networks, particularly for mid-range MXs mounted in a data center.

  • Primary WAN

    • In areas where wired internet services are not available, the MG41 provides a simple, viable option for wireless WAN connectivity.

  • Secondary WAN for Failover

    • An MX's secondary WAN interface connected to an MG41 may use the cellular network in the event of a primary uplink failure.

  • Secondary WAN for SD-WAN

    • An MX with an MG41 as a secondary WAN uplink may use the cellular network to establish VPNs for SD-WAN.

  • High Availability Uplink

    • The MG41 can be used as either a primary or secondary internet uplink for MX HA topologies. Its two LAN ports allow the MXs to share access to the same cellular network.

Carrier compatibility is generally based on having compatible bands on the modem. In the open market, carriers may only require regulatory domain certifications and open market certifications, like the PTCRB and GCF, to be compatible for their network. Sometimes carriers will require additional testing before a device can be used on their network. The section Tested Carriers is based on Meraki device certifications being approved by those specific carriers. A carrier being listed above means that they have officially certified the Meraki product for their cellular network. There maybe many unlisted carriers could be functionally compatible with Meraki devices. The list of tested certified carriers is based on the carrier validating Meraki per their network parameter requirements. If a carrier you are looking to use is not listed above, it could be that they do not require additional compliance testing for their network.

Ordering Guide

To place an order for an MG41 cellular gateway, pair a specific hardware model with a single license (which includes cloud services, software upgrades and support). For example, to order an MG41E with 3 years of enterprise licensing for use in North America, order an MG41E-HW with LIC-MG41-ENT-3Y. A lifetime warranty with advanced replacement is included on all MG hardware (excluding accessories) at no additional cost.

Note: Non-Meraki antennas are not supported. The socket is a reversed RP-SMA that is designed to detect the official MG smart dipole antennas and smart patch antenna. Usage of non-Meraki accessories may damage the MG and degrade performance. The Cisco Meraki antennas are designed for the maximum allowable gain without exceeding the EIRP for local regulatory domains on their supported bands.
