Meraki announced that it is growing its line of multi-gigabit (mGig) switches with the release of the MS355. The new switch features a high-count of full, 10G mGig switch ports and is designed to help IT admins of data-intensive networks prepare their organisation to meet the demands of next-generation access points. Universities, hospitals and large public complexes like transportation centres all benefit from the increased bandwidth capabilities of the MS355.
Multi-gigabit, or mGig, switches offer the benefit of greater switching capacity while using previously-installed Cat 5e/6/6a cabling infrastructure. Meraki developed the MS355, a cloud-managed high mGig port-density switch designed to help organisations prepare for large deployments of AX access points. The series comes in four models all with 4 x 10G SFP+ ports, 2 x 40G QSFP+ ports, and 400 Gbps of stacking bandwidth. All models use 100 Gbps optical cables to stack up to eight devices for greater network resilience.
The series varies in the number of mGig ports included on the switch:
|Model||mGig ports||GbE ports|
