About This Product
The Meraki MS120-24P 24-Port Cloud Managed Stackable Gigabit Switch provides Layer 2 access switching ideal for branch and campus deployments. It is built from the ground up for cloud management without compromising any of the power and flexibility traditionally found in enterprise-class switches. The MS120-24P is managed through an elegant, intuitive cloud interface, rather than a cryptic command line. To bring up the MS120-24P, just plug it in; there's no need for complicated configuration files or even direct contact with the switch.

Branch and campus access

  • Quality-of-Service (QoS) to prioritise mission critical traffic such as voice and video
  • Voice VLAN support for simplified VoIP deployments
  • CDP/LLDP with detailed neighbour discovery and visibility
  • Port Mirroring support for monitoring network traffic at line rate
  • IGMP Snooping to optimise 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 Authorisation (CoA) and RADIUS accounting support
  • DHCP snooping to prevent users from adding unauthorised 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 and automation

  • Virtual Stacking lets administrators configure thousands of ports across a network in one dashboard action without having to physically connect stack members
  • 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
  • Automatic and scheduled firmware upgrades for the complete network

Converged voice, video and data environments
The Meraki MS120-24P is designed to unify data, voice, and video onto a single IP backbone. It supports rich quality-of-service (QoS) functionality for prioritising data, voice, and video traffic. It also supports eight (8) class-of-service (CoS) queues on every port, enabling it to maintain end-to-end traffic prioritisation. It features PoE+ to provide power for VoIP telephones, IP security cameras, wireless access points (APs), and other IP devices. In addition, using CDP and LLDP, PoE power is intelligently budgeted to maximise the number of PoE clients supported.

Application layer visibility
The MS120-24P includes integrated Layer 7 fingerprinting. 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, Androids, and other devices. This unprecedented visibility allows optimising of network resources and maintaining optimal network performance.

Unified software architecture
The MS120-24P runs 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, the MS120-24P automatically connects to the Meraki cloud, downloads configurations, and joins the appropriate network. If new firmware is required, this is retrieved by the switch and updated automatically. This ensures the network is kept up-to-date with bug fixes, security updates, and new features.

Simplified management and operations
Meraki’s cloud-managed architecture makes it simpler than ever to quickly provision and reconfigure switch ports with security, QoS, and other parameters. The Meraki dashboard provides unified policies, event logs, and monitoring, which make it easy to manage and grow scale network deployments.

By providing a complete, powerful set of management functions over the cloud, Meraki cloud-based management eliminates the need for proprietary command line configuration interfaces which require expensive and time-consuming certifications. The MS120-24P can be fully deployed and provisioned in minutes, without requiring any local configuration or staging. Additional or replacement switches can be sent to remote offices and installed by non-technical staff, saving thousands of dollars in time and travel expenses.

The Meraki MS120-24P also includes several remote diagnostic features, from network connectivity and cable integrity tests to latency measurement tools. For deep client troubleshooting, administrators can even perform per-port remote PCAP packet captures without any additional probes or hardware on-site.

Designed for reliability and environmental efficiency
The MS120-24P was designed for reliable operation in network closet environments, which may be prone to high temperatures and limited ventilation. By minimising total component count and only using proven switching silicon, Meraki is able to deliver highly reliable products with exceptional mean time between failure (MTBF) ratings.

This switch also operates with a split-plane architecture, where silicon-based switching and data forwarding are separated from software-based control and management. By decoupling the underlying switching logic from control, each unit is able to deliver wire-speed switching even when advanced software features such as Layer 7 host and OS fingerprinting are enabled.

Finally, the highly integrated design of MS120-24P results in power and cooling savings in large deployment environments of 30-60% when compared with similar managed Gigabit switches.

Distributed Branches and Remote Sites
Meraki’s cloud-based system makes it easy to manage a single switch, or thousands of distributed switches, from a single interface.

  • Troubleshoot problems remotely (e.g. find which port has a bad cable attached).
  • Add or replace switches without having to send a technician onsite. Switches automatically download their current configuration as soon as they are connected to the network.
  • Receive email alerts or SMS messages whenever there's a problem at a remote site.

Campus Edge
The MS120-24P is ideal for small and large scale campus deployments, where reliability, scalability, and manageability are top priorities.

  • Virtual Stacking lets administrators manage up to thousands of ports in a single interface without having to physically connect stack members.
  • 1GbE cable SFP ports with link aggregation provide long range connectivity to aggregation switches such as the MS410 (sold separately).
  • Get alerts if any switch fails or goes offline, before users complain.
