Control Plane and Data Plane on Meraki Switch

Hi,

 

I just ordered Meraki MS350-24X Switch. I want to know when the switch already deployed and suddenly the internet connection was unreachable (cannot access Meraki Cloud/Dashboard), what will happen? Does my traffic still can through (only control plane was down) or both of Data Plane and Control Plane down (The traffic cannot pass)?

 

Any answer will be appreciated.

 

Thank you!

This document should help.  You’ll lose management access but local network traffic will Stay active

Just a short answer.

 

Switch keeps working and forwarding traffic as how it is configured.

 

Only thing is, you're not able to configure the switch settings ( only some real basic things via local status page ) when it has no connection to the meraki cloud portal.
