Internet Accessis provided to each Liberian school by the sale of 53 used college textbooks to raise $1,000. Internet Access will allow Liberian teachers access to the most updated teaching tools as well as the ability to work collaboratively with other teachers across the country.
The Liberian Books Project employs Meraki devices for internet connectivity.
About the company
Powered by an award-winning cloud-based technology, the Meraki Cloud Controller, Meraki offers enterprise-class wireless networks at a fraction of the cost and complexity of traditional networking vendors. The company’s customers range from small and medium-sized businesses to global hotel chains to world-class educational institutions. Meraki wireless networks serve millions of users on thousands of networks in more than 130 countries.
Meraki (may-rah-kee) is a Greek word that means doing something with soul, creativity, or love. It’s when you put something of yourself into what you’re doing.
A state of the art, high-performance device
Deployed in a mesh with other MR58s, or as a system with other Meraki devices, the Meraki MR58 can extend Wi-Fi coverage across campuses, cities, or other large outdoor areas for a fraction of the cost of traditional infrastructure. The MR58 can also be used to create long distance mesh links as far as 20 km with optional antennas. Designed for rugged deployments in outdoor or industrial settings, the MR58 is also the right solution for large indoor areas with heavy demand for bandwidth.
Features & Benefits
Exceptional Performance Across Three 802.11n Radios
With three 802.11n radios, the Meraki MR58 delivers higher throughput to even heavy concentrations of end users. Smart automatic frequency selection and optimization algorithms make it possible to cover entire cities while automatically avoiding interference and other slowdowns. By using advanced MIMO antenna technology and modulation selection techniques, the MR58 can also drive weaker links at high data rates.
Cover Large Areas and Long Distances
With two radios dedicated to high-throughput mesh connections, the Meraki MR58 can create very large mesh networks with 10 or more hops, little bandwidth degradation, and using only a limited number of Internet connections. One, two, or all three radios can be equipped with optional directional antenna accessories to create long distance mesh links of up to 20 km with clear line of sight.
