The Cisco Meraki MS is the world’s first cloud-managed switch, bringing the benefits of the cloud to enterprise networks: simplified management, reduced complexity, network wide visibility and con-trol, and lower cost for branch and campus deployments.
Cisco Meraki access switching is available in two product lines — the MS220 and MS320 families. Mission-critical features — like deep, Layer 7 application visibility, network topology, virtual stacking, QoS for business critical applications, 802.1X access control, and more — are present in both families.
The MS320 is the flagship Meraki layer 3 access switch, designed for high-speed connectivity and high availability, with optional redun-dant power supplies. In addition, the MS320’s full-PoE models are ideal for next generation 802.11ac wireless AP, including the Meraki MR34 — with plenty of budget to spare for other PoE clients.
The MS220 family provide layer 2 access switching, is ideal for deploying to branch locations, and supports an optional, rack-mount-able remote PSU.
A Fresh Approach
Meraki switches are built from the ground up to be easy to manage without compromising any of the power and flexibility traditionally found in enterprise-class switches.
Cisco Meraki switches are managed through an elegant, intuitive cloud interface, rather than a cryptic command line. To bring up a Meraki switch, just plug it in; there’s no need for complicated configuration files — or pre-staging.
In addition, Meraki’s centralized management system gives administrators deep visibility into the network and how it’s used. See which switches are near capacity across hundreds of sites. Find all configuration changes made by a certain person with instant search.
