Meraki long range AP

Does Meraki have any long range APs?  I need something that can provide coverage up to 3 miles.  Something like this.

I didn't really see anything on Meraki website.

No, there is nothing like that for Meraki.  I have used Engenius for shorter point to point bridges and they work well.  I would go with that or possibly Ubiquiti.  Both are cheap and should work well.

Kind of a big deal

Re: Meraki long range AP

For those applications imo you'll be better off with a 3d party point-to-point solution that doesn't necessarily have to be WiFi either.

 

Meraki have multiple APs to which external antenna's can be mounted. Two high-gain directional antenna's will definitely get far, but 3 miles really is far away. Lining up antenna's at that distance can be challenging. Thorough testing would definitely be needed

Also, even if you made it work with Meraki and antennas there is a problem of Meraki only allowing one VLAN to be bridged.  It would not work as true Layer 2 bridge.

I have something like this connecting two locations that are about a mile apart.  Works just fine.
