Product Review

The Cisco MS220-24-HW offers a solid foundation for small to medium-sized network deployments, featuring 24 RJ-45 ports for 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet connections and 4 1GbE SFP uplink ports, enhancing its connectivity options. However, it lacks PoE/PoE+ capabilities, limiting its use in environments requiring power over Ethernet for devices such as VoIP phones or wireless access points. With a 48 Gbps switching capacity and support for up to 4,094 VLANs, it adequately serves most networking needs, but its operational temperature range and power consumption may not suit all scenarios.


The Cisco MS220-24-HW is a part of Cisco's Meraki series, designed for efficiency and simplicity in network management. This switch includes 24 RJ-45 ports for 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet connections, providing high-speed connectivity for a variety of devices. In addition, it features four 1GbE SFP uplink ports, enhancing its capability to connect with higher network hierarchies or to facilitate high-speed links to other switches or devices. This model does not support Power over Ethernet (PoE/PoE+), focusing instead on delivering reliable wired connectivity. With a switching capacity of 48 Gbps, the MS220-24-HW ensures smooth data transmission across the network, minimizing traffic bottlenecks. Its internal power supply and rack mount type make it an easy fit into standardized networking racks, with dimensions of 1.74 inches in height, 19.1 inches in width, and 10.11 inches in depth, weighing 5.97 lbs. In terms of energy efficiency, the switch operates at an idle power load of 9 W and can go up to a maximum power load of 19 W under full operation. This efficiency is crucial for reducing operational costs in business environments. The device is built to operate within a temperature range of 0 °C to 40 °C and can function in environments with 5% to 95% noncondensing humidity, making it adaptable to various operational contexts. The MS220-24-HW is designed for ease of use and security. It supports DHCP snooping, a valuable feature for protecting against certain types of network attacks by filtering out untrusted DHCP messages. The switch can handle up to 4,094 VLANs, providing extensive network segmentation capabilities to enhance security and performance. With a capacity for 8K MAC forwarding entries, it efficiently manages internal traffic flow. Automatic firmware upgrades are another significant feature, ensuring the switch always runs the latest software without manual intervention, enhancing security and performance. IGMP snooping is supported, optimizing multimedia traffic delivery and reducing unnecessary load on the network. Voice VLAN support is crucial for networks that prioritize voice traffic, ensuring clear voice communication without lag or jitter.
