The Meraki MS125-24P cloud-managed switch provides Layer 2 access switching ideal for branch and campus deployments. The MS125 series features a variety of power options designed to meet the diverse needs of large enterprise networks. Meraki switches are perfect for cloud management without compromising any of the power and flexibility traditionally found in enterprise-class switches.

You manage all Meraki switches through an easy-to-use cloud interface. To bring up a Meraki switch, simply plug it in. Meraki switches do not require CLI for switch configuration or port management.


The Meraki user interface is gloriously clean and easy to navigate, but quite powerful. Every Meraki product lives in the same place in the Meraki interface. Your switch, access point, and firewall will all know each other. They can work with other vendor’s appliances, but they work best with other Merakis.

The GUI is online, as mentioned. You can reach it from anywhere, as long as you have the credentials. So, you can manage the network from any device that has a browser. The Meraki MS125-24P cloud-managed switch also easily stacks. It’s all done for you in the Meraki cloud control panel.

Plus, because the MS125 is cloud-managed, it’s always ready to receive the latest firmware updates. Basically, the Meraki MS125-24P cloud-managed switch  is no more difficult to set up than a simple hub, and you can manage multiple units from one location or by remote administrators.

If you have multiple Meraki switches in a network, they can easily be managed all at once. Or, you can configure in groups that need to behave differently.


Thankfully, there are many security features ‘living’ inside each Meraki switch. Of course, it has all the basic security one would expect from a switch, like the ability to use a RADIUS server for authentication. But here are also additional protections, necessary for a device designed to protect information legally protected by HIPAA away from prying eyes.

And, two-factor authentication is the default for administrators accessing the dashboard. The switch also supports role-based access control that you can configure by device. In a healthcare environment, this could be very useful. For example, you can grant certain administrators access to switches on the clinical network, or separate admins by department.

That can be a good way to ensure that the entire healthcare system cannot be made vulnerable to the actions of one administrator.

In fact, the Meraki MS125-24P cloud-managed switch even you to configure security down to the individual port. So, even if attackers were able to defeat every other form of security, they would still need a specifically authorized device to make any changes. And, the MS125-24P features Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol snooping.

This can be used to indicate an attacker’s reconnaissance on a network. It would then block such activities automatically.

Meraki MS125-24P cloud-managed switch features

The MS125 series are Gigabit-speed Layer 2 switches, with Gigabit uplinks. Varying levels of PoE/PoE+ power are available as well. Additionally, all models support virtual stacking. The MS125 boasts switching capacity of up to 176 Gbps. The larger models, like the 48-port models, offer of PoE+ power, with options for a 740W power budget. Given their competitive pricing, that makes them a great choice for midsized offices.

Remember, Meraki switches utilize the same interface as all Meraki devices. With this price-to-performance ratio and ease of set-up, they are a great place to start looking.
