The Meraki MS450-12 cloud managed aggregation switch brings powerful cloud-managed switching to the aggregation layer. This 12 port, 40G aggregation switch adopts the benefits of the cloud: simplified management, network wide control, and lower cost.

Super-easy setup

We’ll talk about setup first. Meraki MS switches are wonderful at allowing a network admin to configure a VPN mesh network without having to have highly specialized knowledge. Unlike Cisco switches, there is no CLI, there is only a GUI. Also, Meraki support helps you set it up as you add nodes to your network. Meraki MS switches are amazingly easy to deploy, and amazingly easy to manage. Period.

As a matter of fact, this is true everything Meraki makes. They do it better than pretty much anybody else.

Zero-touch provisioning means that Meraki is brilliant for companies with limited IT teams or IT agencies looking to reduce site calls.

The Meraki MS450 series is a high performance L3 branch and campus line. It’s capable of higher capacity routing and stacking bandwidth than the lower down models. Just email us, or call Corporate Armor at 866-861-2498 and let help show you what 5-star Corporate Armor service is all about!
