MS425 Series

Cloud-Managed Aggregation Switches

with 10G aggregation, 40G QSFP+ uplinks

For high performance and critical deployments

CLOUD MANAGED STACKABLE ACCESS SWITCHES

The Cisco Meraki MS400 Series brings powerful cloud-managed switching to the aggregation layer. This range of 1 and 10Gbps fiber aggregation switches adopts the benefits of the cloud: simplified management, reduced complexity, network wide visibility and control, and lower cost for campus deployments.

 

EXPANDING CLOUD MANAGEMENT TO THE CAMPUS

Cisco Meraki aggregation switches extend Meraki’s cloud management to campus deployments. Just like our access switches, these aggregation switches are built from the ground up to be easy to manage 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 a cryptic command line. To bring up a Meraki switch, just plug it in; there’s no need for complicated configuration files — or pre-staging.

INDUSTRY LEADING CLOUD MANAGEMENT

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

  • Centralized management that allows you to manage your entire Meraki network stack from campus aggregation to your access layer (wireless APs, switches, firewalls).
  • Stack for high density fiber aggregation and manage up to tens of thousands of ports from a single pane of glass.
  • Layer 7 OS, client, and hostname fingerprinting.
  • E-mail and SMS (text) alerts upon power loss, downtime, or 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.
  • True zero-touch device provisioning.

It looks like your shopping cart is worth enough to Cisco that we can get a discount for your order.

That might be worth about 7% to you.

We can get this discount by registering the deal. The conditions are:

1- nobody else has registered the same (or a similar) deal for the same end user, and
2- the basket is worth at least US$5000 Cisco list price. We don't charge Cisco List price: if the MerakiStore total is about £2500 +VAT, that's probably about $5000 Cisco list.

Deal registration takes 3-4 days, so if you have the time, and if another CIsco partner hasn't already registered the deal, you might want to ask for a quote instead of checking out now.
