The Cisco Meraki MS is the industry's first cloud managed switch, combining the benefits of cloud based centralized management with a powerful, reliable access platform. 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).
Virtual stacking: manage up to tens of thousands of ports from a single pane of glass.
Layer 7 OS, client, and hostname fingerprinting.
Powerful Live Tools such as cable test to isolate physical layer issues.
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.
No staging deployments
With cloud management, thousands of switch ports can be configured and monitored instantly, over the web. Provision remote sites without on-site IT, deploy network-wide configuration changes, and easily manage campus and distributed networks without training or dedicated staff.
