Meraki Releases Solar-Powered WiFi mesh

San Francisco-based Meraki has begun shipping a self-powered WiFi mesh device for extending coverage in outdoor areas such as business districts, resorts, rural areas, parks, golf courses, etc.

Meraki Solar is completely energy independent. Each unit is powered by its own solar panel and solar-charged lithium iron phosphate battery. Battery charging is monitored and managed via Meraki's web-based management Dashboard, the same management tool included with all Meraki devices. The units can be mounted on roofs, walls, poles and anywhere that receives sun exposure.

Meraki Solar is priced from $848-$1,497 depending on size of solar panel required.
