Meraki MS220-8 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 MS220-8 switches are managed through an elegant, intuitive cloud interface, rather than a cryptic command line. To bring up a Meraki MS220-8 switch, just plug it in; there’s no need for complicated configuration files — or pre-staging.
Meraki’s cloud managed architecture makes it simpler than ever to quickly provision and reconfigure switch ports with security, QoS, and other parameters. The Meraki dashboard provides unified policies, event logs, and monitoring, which make it easy to manage and grow large network deployments. 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 dollars in time and travel expenses. The Meraki MS family also includes several remote diagnostic features, from network connectivity and cable integrity tests to latency measurement tools. For deep client troubleshooting, administrators can even perform per-port remote pcap packet captures without any additional probes or hardware on site.
The Meraki switch family was designed for reliable, long-lived operation in wiring closet environments, which may be prone to high temperatures and limited ventilation. By minimizing total component count and only using proven switching silicon, Meraki is able to deliver mean time between failure (MTBF) ratings of over 750,000 hours on products such as the Meraki MS220-8.
