Wind Rating of Cisco Meraki Access Points

Table of contents
No headers
Environmental conditions can have an effect on the way wireless access points behave. In addition to temperature, precipitation, RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) and building materials, wind can also play a factor. The Cisco Meraki MR58, MR62 and MR66 units are rated for 120mph wind gusts. High wind can cause the antennas on these units to be displaced on the receiving end, transmitting end, or both. This can effect a point to point link or wireless associations. Another risk that could occur is the antenna vibrating or the AP breaking off its structural mount. Be sure to consider the impact of wind when conducting your wireless site survey, and always securely mount access points.
