I have a couple of questions about an MS125-24 Layer 2 switch:
1) I have a managed MS125-24 Layer 2 switch with optional PoE+ has four SFP+ 10 Gb uplinks. Is it possible to use these ports as simple 10Gb ports for 10 Gb NAS, Mac Book 10 Gb Connection, etc.?
2) How strong is PoE+ current? E.g., can I use it for the new PTZ Cameras Panasonic 150 4k/60 which have PoE++ in their specificatio...
One simple way to improve the product is to reconsider the price. They are more expensive than their competitors. You have to take into account that it is Meraki by Cisco and they know they are the best and that if you need a less expensive solution you can buy other products. If you want the best, you have to pay for it. But certainly they are a bit more expensive than the competitors.
Personally, I don't like the product because I don't like the idea of losing all functionality if your license for the cloud is not current and paid or if the cloud cannot be accessed. I wouldn't recommend these switches for most organizations because the cloud-based deployment is restrictive and comes with problems. The only reason I can see choosing this product is if your organization is totally non-IT, on-premises and you are comfortable leaving IT services in the hands of somebody else. Realistically, the pricing should be improved to match the services and features provided. This also should be enhanced so that you are able to use the product when there is no cloud connectivity. Because of dependence on the cloud, my strongest advice to people considering this solution is to make sure you have a reliable internet connection. As far as future improvements to the product, it is not a concern for us as we are not doing additional installations at this point and would probably hope, instead, to phase out the use of the product.
