Whats the difference between MS225 vs MS250 vs MS350? They all look the same from an access switching perspective. I'm trying to determine the best switch to put in customer network based upon the following:
dual PSUs, physical stacking, 4 x SFP ports for uplinks, PoE, 1000/100/10 switchports
These will be replacing CAT9300's; customer wants a Meraki quote. What is a good aggregate switch? MS 410 or MS 425?
Solved! Go to Solution.
See the difference, highlighted in Yellow for these 3 switches and choose accordingly based on your requirement. All three switches are POE capable.
Secondly, what Cisco 9300 model you have, i will match and let you know the Meraki model
Here we go as per your requirement on Aggregation, Do you require 1G or 10G, SFP or SFP+ ?
Cater for 6 (max. 😎 x PoE devices per switch, so not significant
GBT have removed the majority of Cisco IP phones, so mostly Meraki MV12 & MR52’s
Standard C9300 model: C9300-48U-E
Current LLDs are below, with notes about removing 2 x Core Switches
MS410 is good as Aggregation as MS425 is an overkill, rest you can use based on what the requirement on the accessible stackable switches from MS225,MS250 or MS350.
You need 12 ports on each switch ? Is that for Aggregation switches ?
The minimum in Aggregation category is MS410-16 which will give you 16x1G SFP ports and 2x10G SFP+ Uplinks
@DerekGerard a bit left field here, but why not consolidate on MS355X-48s, you get 32x1Gb Cu, 16x10Gb Cu, 4xSFP+, 2xQSFP+ and 2xQSFP28 stacking ports per switch. Stack a few up and plenty of SFP+ ports.
@DerekGerard Hope you got your solution, Let us know if any other assistance required.
Tell me the Cat9K model and the Meraki Model you are choosing to compare. I will do that and let you know.
Hi @DerekGerard : Here you go
Full information on MS250 and MS425 is taken from below link
Full information on Cisco Catalyst C9300-48U-E is taken from the below link
As the license is Network Essential on your Cisco 9300 Switch, you can have a look on below link as well. You have other options here as Network Advantage and Premier license.
Thank you for your tremendous help!!!! Can the Cisco migration service tool be able to extract switchport data from the existing C3750X > MS??
