In late October 2022, I placed an order for a GS110-24P 24-port POE switch through a Cisco Meraki reseller. At the time I placed the order, I was told there were severe supply constraints. Yesterday I received a call from that reseller who told me that Cisco is no longer shipping this model switch and that they were refunding my money and cancelling the order. When I asked if there was a new model or an alternative, I was referred to the Meraki enterprise line of products. As of today, the switch still appears on the Meraki Go web site. I just located the Meraki EOL page and the GS110 line of switches is listed as of February 23. I have not seen a new switch line launched as a replacement. I purchased three GS-110-8P 8-port POE switches, three WiFi 6 access points, and a GX50 along with the GS110-24P for a residential installation. The 24-port POE switch is necessary to drive POE cameras and APs, and POE injectors aren't practical. The Meraki enterprise line of products pricing and licensing model isn't attractive for residential use cases, even at the low end. With the "recent" addition of the GX50 and the WiFi 6 indoor and outdoor APs to the Meraki Go portfolio, I can't image that Cisco is abandoning the Meraki Go product line, particularly when competing systems exist. What is the alternative product for the Meraki Go portfolio of switches?
