Do you want to create some #Merakimagic with your Wi-Fi network?  We’ve got some really cool features coming out with our next firmware release - MR29.1 - ready now for public beta.

 

While this release offers a host of enhancements, the top features that I am most excited about include Wireless Personal Network (WPN), Band Steering & Client Balancing, as well as expanded IoT support.

 

Top Features:

 

  • Wireless Personal Network (WPN) - offering the ability to segment the wireless network on a per-user basis to provide a home-like personal network experience on a shared network (single VLAN).  This feature is particularly well suited for shared environments such as university dorms, hotels, senior homes, etc. 

Do you have a high-density environment in which users complain about performance issues?  MR29.1 adds both Band Steering and Client Balancing to optimize performance and improve the user experience.  

 

  • Band Steering  detects clients capable of 5GHz operation and steers them to that frequency, leaving the more crowded 2.4GHz band available for legacy clients; while Client Balancing uses information about the state of the network and wireless client probes to steer the client to the best available access point - improving download and upload performance while reducing loss and latency for mission-critical applications.  

This is a WIN-WIN for everyone! 

 

Are you wondering what do you do with that USB port on your MR57?  How about some IoT applications! One in particular is Electronic Shelf Labels (ESL):

 

  • MR29.1 offers Expanded IoT Support via USB port (6E APs only) for SoluM and Hanshow USB gateways.

Other features include enhancements to Mesh Networking and IPv6
