Meraki mesh throughput

[ #33091 ]

I only have three meraki minis but I was wondering how they scale if you have more of them. One of the Meraki FAQs is:

Will I lose throughput over multiple wireless hops?
Yes, throughput decreases with each hop. We generally advertise that the loss per hop is half the total throughput, but the technical equation looks like this: 1/(2.5^(n-1)) (n = number of hops)

Well, you know how I like equations. Now that Google finally added charts to "Google Docs & Spreadsheets" (my, that is a long name), I present pretty chart: Throughput through meraki mesh. Summary: wifi is very fast and you can probably get away with a few hops, but you need gateways every so often.

  • That's a pretty steep decline, so a 50Mb wifi after 6 hops becomes 500Kb wifi...
  • I learned two nifty things:
    -about the Meraki Mini, which seems very cool to me
    -what a public spreadsheet from Google D & S looks like...
    Thanks
