We recently completed a project to completely overhaul the wireless at two locations for Generation Brands, a manufacturer and distributor of decorative lighting products.  The job called for 19 Meraki MR16s in their NJ location, and 17 in the Las Vegas location.  Replacing what was very old, outdated, and failing access points with the Meraki solution gave the IT staff at GB full vision of all wireless activity in both locations from the convenient cloud based management tool.  They can now update settings to all access points simultaneously as opposed to a very manual process of logging into each AP to make changes which was the case with the old equipment.

The MR16 also provides them with dual radios, both in the 2.4Ghz range as well as the newer 5Ghz band allowing for newer devices such as Ipads and other tablets to connect at the higher speeds and offload that traffic from the more used 2.4Ghz range.  This will allow for better balancing of traffic as they move forward with newer devices.
