The Meraki MS225-24 Layer 2 switch is an excellent entry-level option for small-to-medium sized businesses looking to get started with modern Meraki networking, while still enjoying all the benefits of high-speed Gigabit Ethernet.
The MS225-24 switch features 24 Gigabit Ethernet ports, backed by four 10-Gigabit SFP+ uplinks, bringing the potential for full bandwidth for all users even at maximum capacity. If that's not enough bandwidth, the MS225-24 also supports local stacking up to 80Gbps in throughput, as well as virtual stacking.
Meraki products are designed specifically to be far easier to use than older networking products, and do not require any specific expertise. Meraki utilizes a cloud-backed mesh-networking setup which is mostly self-configuring and self-optimizing. After initial installation is completed, all subsequent Meraki hardware additions are truly a plug and play process - deployment only takes a few minutes.
All administration is handled through the revolutionary Meraki Dashboard system, an easy-to-use GUI interface that still brings nearly as much power and flexibility as older command-line interfaces. The Meraki Dashboard allows top-down configuration of an entire Meraki network, or per-device configuration as needed. From global security policies to app-level restrictions or enforcement on specific devices, everything is handled through a simple and intuitive set of menus.
Cloud-based connectivity even allows Meraki devices to instantly pull down any relevant configuration data, as well as self-updating their firmware without the need for administrator oversight. No other brand of network appliance can so reliably keep their products up-to-date and functioning with maximum efficiency.
Meraki is changing how businesses look at networks, and the MS225-24 is the perfect way for an SMB to get started. Contact Hummingbird Networks for more information on Meraki networking.
