MS22
Cloud Managed Gigabit Switch
Meraki MS22

Overview

The Meraki MS22 is the world’s first cloud-managed switch bringing the benefits of the cloud: simplified management, reduced complexity, network wide visibility and control, and lower cost for branch and campus deployments.

A Fresh Approach

Meraki 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.

In addition, Meraki’s centralized management system gives administrators deep visibility into the network and how it’s used. See which switches are near capacity across hundreds of sites. Find all configuration changes made by a certain person with instant search.
