From the device's response we are able to see the speed and duplex that the Meraki AP is connected with as well as the port and device type.  Also, when the AP is plugged into a Meraki Switch or MX Security Appliance, the LLDP/CDP field has links to the network so you can navigate straight to the device through the Dashboard:
