New switch idea

I'd really like Meraki to make an MS325-8FP switch, essentially 8 PoE+ (or possibly UPoe) multiGig RJ-45 ports and two SFP+ uplink ports.  It should ideally be the same size as the MS-120-8FP and would generally be used in a satellite patch room where you might have a couple of APs and a small number of other devices, or a home...  Single integrated PSU with RPS-2300 connector for failover if required to keep the costs down.

 

What does everyone else think?

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.

I'm thinking you mean MS355-8FP.

 

This would also be great for customers with small numbers of servers needing to hook them all together at 10Gbe.

 

I frequently get customers with 3 to 5 servers with 10GBaseT and a 10GBaseT NAS.  I could accommodate them with a pair of these switches in a dedicated switch block, and then patch these switches back to the network core.

@PhilipDAth I did originally think of that, but decided to move it down to a 325 as I don't want the cost and required space for a redundant internal power supply.  Therefore I was looking at the 250 vs 225 and extrapolated that to the multiGig 3 series.  It also doesn't need the advanced L3 features of the x5x series, only the more limited x25 feature set, being used for edge, home or iSCSI as you stated.
