About This Product
The Meraki MS250-48LP 48 port Layer 3 Managed Stackable Gigabit PoE+ Switch provides reliable access switching ideal for deploying in branches. With stacking capabilities and 10G SFP+ uplinks, redundancy and performance are guaranteed. The Meraki MS250-48LP Gigabit PoE+ Switch also supports redundant, field-replaceable power supplies for mission critical networks.

Easy management without compromise
The Meraki MS250-48LP 48 port Layer 3 Managed Switch is built from the ground up to be easy to manage without compromising any of the power and flexibility traditionally found in enterprise-class switches. The Meraki MS is managed through an elegant, intuitive cloud interface, rather than a cryptic command line. To bring up the Meraki switch, just plug it in; there’s no need for complicated configuration files, or even direct physical access to the switch.

Converged Voice, Video and Data Environments
The Meraki MS250-48LP 48 port Layer 3 Managed PoE+ Switch is designed to unify data, voice, and video onto a single IP backbone. All Meraki switches support rich quality of-service (QoS) functionality for prioritising data, voice, and video traffic. The switch supports eight class-of-service (CoS) queues on every port, enabling them to maintain end-to-end traffic prioritisation. PoE models provide power 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. For the most power-hungry applications, support for Cisco UPoE is also available. The Meraki MC products work flawlessly with Meraki switches, and create a unique and powerful experience to installing, supporting and troubleshooting VoIP technology.

Application Layer Visibility
The Meraki MS250-48LP 48 port Gigabit Switch is the only switch to include 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, iMacs, iPads, Androids, and other devices. This unprecedented visibility allows optimising of network resources and maintaining optimal network performance.

Unified Software Architecture
This Meraki switch runs the same Meraki 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, MS250 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-to date with bug fixes, security updates, and new features.

Simplified Management and Operations
The Meraki MS250-48LP 48 port Layer 3 Managed Stackable Gigabit PoE+ Switch 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 large network deployments. By providing a complete, powerful set of management functions over the web, Meraki’s cloud-based management eliminates the need for proprietary command line configuration interfaces which require expensive and time consuming certifications. Meraki MS switches 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 MS family 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 & Environmental Efficiency
The Meraki MS250-48LP 48 port Layer 3 Managed Stackable Gigabit PoE+ Switch was designed for reliable, long-lived operation in wiring 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. Each Meraki 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 designs of Meraki switches result in power and cooling savings in large deployment environments of 30- 60% when compared with similar managed Gigabit switches.
