MR45E for when ?

Hi community ! may one of you know if now MERAKI will launch soon a 802.11ax AP with external antennas ? MR45E would make sense to have the equivalent of Cisco 9115AXE, and fit the need for high-density environments like ExpoHalls/Public Event Areas... Thanks.

Kind of a big deal

Re: MR45E for when ?

I can see a lot of complexity, as it will need a whole new set of antennas with different spatial seperation.

 

If you are wanting high density it would be the MR55E.  That has 10 radios - so 10 antenna cables ...  (8 spatial radios and a scanning radio and a blue tooth radio).

Can you imagine how thick that will be if all put into one cable and one connector?

Re: MR45E for when ?

HI Philip. nobody sais it has to be done within one single cable. Cisco Antennas often has several (5 to 6 was the maximum today) thin coax entering into a patch for example at each corner of the antenna. it's fine. and anyway the market is expecting an 'E' 11ax-AP from MERAKI, otherwise we will loose some opportunities face to competition or even Cisco traditional with 9115AXE... Hoping MERAKI will not wait to long now
