Cisco Meraki MS220-8P PoE Gigabit Layer 2 Switch
The Cisco Meraki MS220-8P is a cloud managed 8 port Gigabit PoE (124 W) switch with 2 non-shared SFP ports for 1G uplink. The MS220-8Pis an ideal match for deployment in branch or small offices and provides layer 2 access switching.
Cisco Meraki MS220-8P PoE Gigabit Layer 2 Switch Overview
The Cisco Meraki MS220-8P is part of a line of cloud-managed switches which bring the benefits of the cloud to enterprise networks with simplified management, reduced complexity, network wide visibility and control, and lower cost for branch and campus deployments. It also features mission-critical features such as Layer 7 application visibility, virtual stacking, QoS for business critical applications, 802.1X access control, and more.
The Cisco Meraki MS220-8P has been built from the ground with the goal of making it easy to manage without compromising any of the power and flexibility traditionally found in enterprise-class network switches.
The cloud managed architecture of the Cisco Meraki MS220-8P makes it simpler than ever to quickly provision and configure switch ports with security, QoS, and other parameters. The dashboard provides unified policies, event logs, and monitoring, which make it easy to manage and grow large network deployments.
The cloud-based management eliminates the need for proprietary command line configuration interfaces which require expensive and time consuming certifications. Cisco Meraki Layer 2 access 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.
The MS220-8P 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.
This Cisco Meraki switch includes integrated Layer 7 fingerprinting which can identify hundreds of applications from business apps to BitTorrent and YouTube. User fingerprinting with Google-like search allows administrators to easily identify and control individual users, PCs, iMacs, iPads, Androids, and other devices. This unprecedented visibility allows you to optimize network resources and maintain optimal network performance.
The Cisco Meraki MS220-8P is designed to unify data, voice, and video onto a single IP backbone. Like all Cisco Meraki switches it supports rich quality-of-service (QoS) functionality for prioritizing data, voice, and video traffic. This switch supports eight class-of-service (CoS) queues on every port, enabling them to maintain end-to-end traffic prioritization.
The PoE MS220-8P provide 15.4 watts of power per port for VoIP telephones, IP security cameras, wireless access points (APs), and other IP devices. This PoE Cisco Meraki Layer 2 access switch also support standards-based 25.5 watt (30 watt max per port) IEEE 802.3at for powering networked devices like multiple radio IEEE 802.11n APs and video phones that may require more power than available with IEEE 802.3af.
