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 control, 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 redundant 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-mountable remote PSU(1).
By providing a complete, powerful set of management functions over the web, Meraki’s cloud-based management eliminates the need for proprietary command line configuration interfaces which require expensive and time consuming certifications. Meraki MS switches can be fully deployed and provisioned in minutes, without requiring any local configuration or staging. Additional or replacement switches can be sent to remote offices and installed by non-technical staff, saving thousands of pounds in time and travel expenses.
