Meraki MS Switch Modules
Meraki MS switches are renowned for their simplicity, scalability, and cloud-based management. To further extend the functionality and versatility of your Meraki MS switches, you can leverage various switch modules designed to address specific networking needs. These modules seamlessly integrate with Meraki MS switches, allowing you to expand your network capabilities and meet evolving business requirements.
Key Meraki MS Switch Modules
Stacking Modules: Stacking modules enable you to create a single logical switch by interconnecting multiple Meraki MS switches. This facilitates simplified management, improved resiliency, and increased bandwidth between switches. Stacking modules ensure efficient utilization of network resources and provide a seamless experience across the stack.
SFP and SFP+ Modules: SFP (Small Form-Factor Pluggable) and SFP+ modules allow for flexible fiber-optic or copper connectivity options. These hot-swappable modules support various transceivers, enabling you to connect Meraki MS switches to different network media types, distances, and speeds. SFP and SFP+ modules provide the flexibility needed for diverse network environments.
QSFP and QSFP+ Modules: QSFP (Quad Small Form-Factor Pluggable) and QSFP+ modules are high-density interfaces that support higher data rates and increased bandwidth. These modules are typically used for connecting Meraki MS switches to high-performance network devices or aggregating multiple ports into a single link. QSFP and QSFP+ modules are ideal for demanding network environments that require enhanced throughput.
PoE (Power over Ethernet) Modules: PoE modules enable the delivery of power to connected devices over Ethernet cables. With PoE support, Meraki MS switches can power devices such as IP phones, wireless access points, and security cameras without the need for separate power adapters. PoE modules simplify network deployments, reduce cable clutter, and provide centralized power management.
