Cisco Meraki MS120-48 Switch

Cisco Meraki MS120 Switches Features

Layer 2 access switches with 1G SFP uplinks, designed for small branch deployments

CLOUD-MANAGED ACCESS SWITCHES

Cisco Meraki MS120 switches provide Layer 2 access switching ideal for branch and campus deployments. The MS120 series features a variety of power options designed to meet the diverse needs of large enterprise networks.

Cisco Meraki switches are built from the ground up for cloud management without compromising any of the power and flexibility traditionally found in enterprise-class switches.

All Cisco Meraki switches are managed through an elegant, intuitive cloud interface, rather than a cryptic command line.

To bring up a Meraki switch, simply plug it in. Meraki switches do not require CLI for switch configuration or port management.

Meraki’s centralized management platform gives administrators granular visibility into their network. Our dashboard helps you keep track of every configuration change in your network with our detailed event and change logs.

INDUSTRY LEADING CLOUD MANAGEMENT

Cloud management has a number of benefits that make it easier to build networks large and small:

  • Automatic email alerts from power loss, downtime, excessive Layer 1 errors, or configuration changes
  • Powerful remote diagnostic tools such as packet capture to help isolate and troubleshoot network issues
  • Role-based administration
  • Firmware upgrades and enhancements from the Meraki cloud
  • Virtual Stacking enables switch port configuration changes on the dashboard interface without the need to physically stack switches
  • Incredible network transparency with application, operating system, client, and hostname visibility
  • Zero-touch provisioning for rapid deployment across sites
