Does the N7 level in multiplayer do anything; like unlocking features or effecting placements for games, or is it just an indicator of how much multiplayer the person have played?

It has no effect on any aspect other than how other players may treat you. I don't know if they use truskill in ME3 (I don't think they do, but I was unable to find any indication one way or the other), but that would be how they would match you if they did. Otherwise it is likely just random. I have been in matches with all low levels (like me) and in matches with all really high levels (150+).

I wouldn't play Silver with a character bellow level 10 - unless his N7 rating is at least 100+ - preferably 200+ – user23549 Apr 9 '12 at 14:02

It is a combination of the levels of your multiplayer characters & has no effect on your game.

Yes, but what i would like to know is if it have any effect on the game? like placement or unlocking features? Will update question to make it more clear. – Blem Mar 13 '12 at 18:27
Then no. Your initial question was "Dose the N7 level in multiplayer do anything or is it just an indicator of how much multiplayer the person have played?" I have adjusted my answer accordingly. – mike1987 Mar 13 '12 at 18:33
There's also a +10 bonus each time you promote. – Raven Dreamer May 18 '12 at 18:48

I think it actually stands for something. When my level was below 300 the "rest skill points" item appeared as a gold item. Once I surpassed the lvl 300 it became silver. I think the higher the level the higher the odds to get better weapons and items such as black widows or other N7 guns

This is unrelated to N7 level, and in fact, represents a recent patch change. See here, second to last note. – Raven Dreamer May 18 '12 at 18:50
