The Cisco Meraki MS320 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 Meraki 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 Meraki 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 Meraki MS320 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 Meraki MS320 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. Each Meraki switch also operates with a split-plane architecture, where silicon-based switching and data forwarding are separated from software-based control and management
