Overview:

Cloud-Managed Compact Switches

Cisco Meraki MS120-8 compact switches provide Layer 2 access switching in a fanless, compact form factor. All models include 1GbE SFP ports for fiber uplink, integrated mounting brackets, and a Kensington security slot, making them ideal for rapid and secure deployment to branch location.

Cisco Meraki switches are built from the ground-up to be easily managed without compromising any of the power and flexibility traditionally found in enterprise-class switches.

Meraki switches are managed through an elegant, intuitive cloud interface, rather than through command line. To set up a Meraki switch, just plug it in; there’s no need for complicated configuration files or even direct physical access to the switch.

Meraki’s centralized management gives administrators deep visibility into the network and how it’s used. For example, you can quickly see which switches are near capacity across hundreds of sites, or find all configuration changes made by a member of the team with instant search.

Industry-Leading Cloud Management

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

  • True zero-touch device provisioning
  • Virtual Stacking: manage up to thousands of ports from a single pane of glass
  • Application-layer visibility with automatic operating system, client, and hostname fingerprinting
  • Powerful live tools such as packet capture and cable test to isolate and troubleshoot network issues
  • Alerts to indicate power loss, downtime, excessive Layer 1 issues, and configuration changes
  • Role-based administration and automatic, scheduled firmware upgrades over the web
  • Regular feature updates and enhancements delivered on demand from the Meraki cloud

Product Highlights

  • Gigabit Access switching with 8 x 1GbE RJ45 ports and optional PoE/PoE+
  • 2 x 1G SFP uplink interfaces on all models
  • Fanless operation
  • 20Gbps non-blocking compact switch
  • 67/124 watt PoE budget with PoE+ support and dynamic power allocation for powering access points, phones, cameras, and other PoE-enabled devices
  • 8 dedicated QoS queues for converged voice, video, and data applications
  • Integrated mounting brackets for wall or desk mounting, with included Kensington security slot
  • Lifetime hardware warranty and advanced replacement at no additional cost

Features:

Branch & Campus Access

  • Quality-of-Service (QoS) to prioritize mission-critical traffic such as voice and video
  • Voice VLAN support for simplified VoIP deployments
  • CDP/LLDP with detailed neighbor discovery and visibility
  • Port Mirroring support for monitoring network traffic at line rate
  • IGMP Snooping to optimize network performance for multicast applications
  • Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) for high-capacity trunking

Network Security

  • IEEE 802.1X, MAB, and Hybrid authentication support for wired access control with RADIUS server monitoring
  • Port security and MAC whitelisting
  • Change of Authorization (CoA) and RADIUS accounting support
  • DHCP snooping to prevent users from adding unauthorized DHCP servers on the network
  • Rapid Spanning Tree, BPDU Guard, Root Guard, and other safeguards to help prevent misconfigurations and reduce convergence time
  • Per-port VLAN configuration
  • Multiple administrative roles with sophisticated security policy management

Network Troubleshooting & Automation

  • Virtual Stacking lets administrators configure thousands of ports across a network in one dashboard action
  • Configuration templates for rapid, zero-touch provisioning and auditing of all sites
  • Network Topology for automatic and interactive network mapping
  • Remote cable testing, packet capture, and client discovery
  • Staged, automatic, and scheduled firmware upgrades for the complete network

Rapid Deployment & Configuration

With Meraki’s secure cloud architecture, device provisioning and orchestration becomes completely streamlined. Zero-touch configuration coupled with configuration templates let administrators define a switch configuration once and then bind thousands of switches to a profile, reducing overhead and increasing network security.

Application Layer Visibility

Meraki is the only switch to include integrated Layer 7 fingerprinting. Our powerful, built-in traffic classification features 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, Macs, iPads, Android devices, and other device types. This unprecedented visibility allows optimizing of network resources and maintaining an optimal, secure network that always performs.


Unified Software Architecture

Meraki switches run the same operating system used by all of Meraki’s products. The use of a common operating system allows Meraki to deliver a consistent experience across all product lines. When connected, MS120-8 switches automatically connect to the Meraki cloud, download configuration, and join the appropriate network. If new firmware is required, this is retrieved by the switch and updated automatically. This ensures the network is kept up-todate with bug fixes, security updates, and new features.
