The Cisco Meraki MS220-8P is an entry-level Layer 2 option in an 8 port PoE switch, allowing small operations with VoIP systems to quickly create a converged cloud-based network with just a single piece of hardware. Gigabit speeds, 8 ports, and full PoE+ support make it a good all-around option for small offices looking to embrace Cisco Meraki cloud systems. The fanless case also makes it a good option for those with existing networks, who need a "go anywhere" WAN portal for trade shows, conferences, and other short-term deployments.
Onboard QoS and other packet-optimizing services guarantee clear Voice or Video transmission, with plenty of onboard security guarding against viruses and outside attacks. It's easy to set up administrator alerts by SMS or email, to notify of any problems no matter where the MS220-8P Meraki switch is deployed. The Meraki Dashboard cloud GUI allows single-pane-of-glass administration of all your MS series switches and other hardware, regardless of their location or your overall network size.
