Meraki MS250-48 Switch
The MS250-48 is a superior mid-level option in Meraki switching and routing, featuring full Layer 2 and 3 support and robust configuration options. It could be a good investment for any medium-sized branch or campus deployment.
This switch features forty-eight separate Gigabit Ethernet ports, backed up by four ten-gigabit SFP+ ports providing bandwidth. It allows for both static and dynamic routing, as well as including DHCP services. For units in can't-fail mission-critical deployments, the MS250-48 can also utilize user-replaceable redundant power systems to bring maximum uptime. Likewise, DHCP failover services are also available to ensure continuity of connectivity.
Should an enterprise need additional bandwidth or ports, the MS250-48 allows for both physical and virtual stacking. Stacks of up to 80G in throughput are allowed, and extremely simple to set up. They are basically plug-and-play.
The Meraki line is well-known for making high-powered enterprise-grade networking simple. The cloud-based mesh-networking architecture uses a combination of local coordination and remote configuration to allow a fully self-optimizing, self-healing network. Beyond setting basic security and access policies, almost no administrative oversight is truly needed - Meraki can largely self-administer.
For more extensive deployments, users of any level of expertise have full control via the Meraki Dashboard system. This single-pane-of-glass GUI allows easy access to Meraki configuration from any terminal or modern smart device. Global policies can be enacted, or administrators can 'drill down' to device-specific policies and Layer 7 app configuration. No other brand of networking appliances available today allows so much administrative power, while requiring so little training or prior networking knowledge.
