Will I be able to add Meraki switches to my current setup with HP switches?

Good Morning Boomer,

 

You can definitely combine the use of other switched with Meraki, however, you won't be able to add them to the Meraki dashboard.  Our organization has several sites using a combination of Meraki and Cisco switches but are only able to get analytics from the Meraki ones.  You can however link the two switches to get basic traffic and usage analytics.  For example, we monitor VoIP traffic from a Cisco SG300 through our Meraki switches and MX devices.

Kind of a big deal

Re: Meraki MS switches interoperability

Yes, absolutely. We run a mixed network of HPE/Aruba switching and Meraki (MS225's mostly). No issues out of the box with the default spanning tree setup on both sides. Very easy to do link aggregates between them as well as long as you specify LACP as the type on the HP side.
