Rugged Switches

Hi Community, is there any plan or road map to bring in a rugged switch model?  Preferably an 8-port with a DIN rail and DC power!

@SilencerPG I and some of my peers have been making this product request to the MS PM team.  They are aware of the need, for example in the transportation space for bus, train, utility and first responder vehicles, etc.  Just because there isn't a ruggedized MS model today, don't let that stop you from contacting your Cisco Meraki rep, make them aware of the project and opportunity, so they can tag it against our internal feature request.  Those are the things that provide valuable input to the PM teams and can help set priorities.  In the meantime, I would sell you an IE1K switch https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/switches/industrial-ethernet-1000-series-switches/...

Kind of a big deal

Re: Rugged Switches

Doubtful since the ruggadized versions usually don't require Internet (cisco switches that is), so they can sit on a train or something. Cloud managed makes rugged setup tricky IMO

Re: Rugged Switches

100% agree Nolan, my usual solution set is to hang rugged devices off of a 4G router or other wireless connectivity.  I had a requirement last year that involved MVs connected wirelessly to a rugged 4G router but were then powered by a rugged PoE switch.  I would have loved to keep all of the equipment within a single vendor - makes management that much easier.
