MX250B-HW

Today, I activated a new MX250 (which I've done many times). However, when I claimed the serial number on this one, it showed up with the model 'MX250B-HW.' I've never seen this, so I attempted to Google it and came to no answers. Has anyone else seen this and know what the difference is versus "MX250-HW"?

The only one I have is this one from when I claimed the device. The rest of the dashboard just shows MX250.f7cd3d15-82b8-42f5-9d53-95b2f9e3fe65.PNG

Looks like even Meraki aren’t aware. 😁

I'm not an employee of Cisco/Meraki. My posts are based on Meraki best practice and what has worked for me in the field.

@allanmack : Is that MX250 B means Beta product 😀

So does it just mean it's an older MX250, since they've been out for a while now?

@allanmack : I would recommend to call Meraki Support and show them on the dashboard or also provide them the product Key, They will help you out !

Maybe it has some different components in due to global shortages, hopefully they ran out of 1Gb Cu modules and installed mGig ones instead 😎😉

cmr is pretty close here. At times supplies/suppliers need to change subcomponents and it means a hardware rev change. Key here is functionality and performance are expected to be the same regardless of rev.

 

And no, it's not beta nor did it get mGig. The MX250 already has 10G WAN and LAN ports anyway 😉
