Cisco Catalyst 9K Switches on Meraki Dashboard

Hi Meraki Community,

 

I have heard from a few very good sources that the Cisco Catalyst Switches (have) and will be appearing on the Meraki Dashboard with full functionality and configurations,  I have several customers with Meraki and C9K Mix.  Is there any news on this, apparently this has been seen, is it a special or something appearing in near future (I Hope)

 

Many thanks

That would be awesome, but I haven't heard anything about this.

Kind of a big deal ww

Can´t believe this is true...

Re: Cisco Catalyst 9K Switches on Meraki Dashboard

I had my  doubts as well as I could not see how it would fit into the dashboard, that is why i reached out,  If it is happening I am not sure Meraki would announce it on here as a response to a question, but who knows what will come back after Cisco's week in Las Vegas as that is where they tend to launch new product/services.  I kind of thought it would be a good idea due to the weaknesses in Meraki Switching and lots of companies mix Meraki Access Switches with Cisco Enterprise.    If it is true then I think it would be a good option - Lets wait and see and if it is true I will await the 1,000,000 Kudos to come flooding in Smiley Happy lol

Are you sure this wasn't referring to DNA? That'll provide a GUI dashboard for Catalyst 9ks.

Or somebody camouflaged a Meraki switch to look like a Cat9k? 😇

Hard to believe, but it does seem plausible and a good direction.  I have not heard anything like this, but I have heard there will be some new product announcements in a couple weeks..

 

I suppose almost everyone would rather see AnyConnect support though Smiley Wink

And if true, I suspect it will come with interesting limitations and maybe just designed for basic monitoring and visibility of a mixed environment, not full configuration.

> very good sources

 

You can downgrade those sources.  This will never happen.  They are competing business units for a start.  That would be like Microsoft helping Apple to grow Apple's business.

 

They are more liekly to be talking about DNAC (DNA Centre).  It can do both types of devices.

Hmm.... its a bit late for Aprils fools jokes isn't it.

Re: Cisco Catalyst 9K Switches on Meraki Dashboard

With DNA you can (in future) manage classic Cisco switches and Meraki switches in one dashboard.

But no classic Cisco switches are compatible with Meraki dashboard.

Re: Cisco Catalyst 9K Switches on Meraki Dashboard

My first view of DNA (in 2018) looks like the Meraki Dashboard. I'm pretty sure this had be updated...

So, I hope Meraki will join the DNA...

Getting noticed

Re: Cisco Catalyst 9K Switches on Meraki Dashboard

I got my 6K Catalysts on the Meraki portal, by ripping them out and replacing them with MS425's.

Hope Meraki will present an enterprise switch with better debugging possibilities soon.
