Advantages of Cisco Meraki Mesh Networks

Each repeater Access Point in a Cisco Meraki network transmits and receives the signal it receives from its gateway (Wired) Access Point so that other unwired Access Points (repeaters) in the network can share the connection and extend the range. Cisco Meraki repeaters use a mesh algorithm to determine the best route between APs to a gateway AP that is physically connected to your LAN/WAN.

Data traffic sent between devices in a Cisco Meraki network is encrypted using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm.
