Meraki’s MS125-48 is the larger of the two switches in the MS125 Series. This switch is ideal for a small to medium business or branch and campus deployments. It is a Layer 2 access switch equipped with 48 1G ports and four 10G SFP+ uplinks. This particular switch is non-blocking with up to 176 Gbps bandwidth support. Select from three different models to fit your needs.
There are 6 configurable QoS queues for converged voice, video, and data applications. For network security, the MS125-48 has 802.1X, MABm and Hybrid authentication support for wired access control with RADIUS server monitoring. There is also a low noise and fanless design for select models.
All Meraki switches are web-based, managed through Meraki’s cloud managed dashboard. The Meraki dashboard provides unified policies, event logs, and monitoring, to make it easy to manage and scale large network deployments. The dashboard will notify you of power loss or downtime and provide remote diagnostic features, such as network connectivity tests, latency measurement tools, and cable integrity tests.
Administrators have top-level visibility into the network using the dashboard. The dashboard helps them keep track of every configuration change in your network with detailed event and change logs. See individual devices or even individual user applications on the dashboard. In addition, the MS125-48 is built for virtual stacking so your IT administrators can make configuration changes to hundreds of switch ports in seconds.
Lastly, the MS125-48 access switch is one of the easiest to use and deploy switches. Simply plug in a new switch and register its serial number within the system. The new switch self-configures and is ready to go. There is no required CLI for switch configuration or port management. Each Meraki switch is “aware” of every other Meraki device on the network, so when a new switch is added the entire network self-optimizes automatically based on what’s installed. This makes Meraki’s MS125-48 access switch one of the easiest to use and manage.
