Product Review

The Cisco MS225-24-HW offers a solid balance of performance and scalability, featuring 24 1GbE RJ45 ports and 4 10GbE SFP+ ports, supported by a switching capacity of 128 Gbps and stacking bandwidth of 80 Gbps. However, it lacks PoE/PoE+ capabilities, which might limit its deployment in environments requiring power over Ethernet for devices. Its fanless design ensures silent operation, suitable for noise-sensitive environments, but the absence of an internal redundant power supply, relying instead on an optional external RPS, could be a concern for critical applications requiring high availability.


The Cisco MS225-24-HW is a switch designed to cater to the needs of medium-sized business networks, offering a balance between performance and scalability. This product is structured to support a variety of networking requirements with its comprehensive array of ports and features focused on enhancing network efficiency and reliability. At the core of the Cisco MS225-24-HW are 24 1GbE RJ45 ports, providing ample connectivity for devices requiring high-speed network access. These ports are complemented by 4 10GbE SFP+ ports, ensuring high-speed uplink connections for aggregation or backbone networking, which is essential for environments where data throughput and bandwidth are critical. The switch also includes 2 hardware stack ports, allowing for the unit to be integrated into a stack for enhanced performance and simplified management. Despite its extensive capabilities, the MS225-24-HW does not support PoE/PoE+, which means it cannot supply power to connected devices over Ethernet. However, it compensates with a substantial switching capacity of 128 Gbps and a stacking bandwidth of 80 Gbps, ensuring smooth and efficient data processing and transfer across the network. Designed for rack mounting in a 1 RU space, the switch measures 1.72 inches in height, 19 inches in width, and 9.05 inches in depth, with a weight of 6.03 lbs. Its power consumption is economical, with an idle power load of 15 W and a maximum power load of 24 W, indicating efficient energy use during operation. The MS225-24-HW operates effectively within a broad temperature range from -5 °C to 50 °C and can function in environments with humidity levels ranging from 5% to 95%, ensuring reliability in various operating conditions. The RJ-45 ports support speeds of 10/100/1000 Mbps, while the SFP+ ports support speeds of 1000/10000 Mbps, facilitating flexible connectivity options. Key features include: - DHCP Snooping, enhancing network security by filtering out untrusted DHCP messages. - IPv4/6 ACL Support, allowing fine-grained control over IPv4 and IPv6 traffic to improve network security and resource utilization. - Automatic Firmware Upgrades, ensuring that the switch is always running the latest software version for optimal performance and security. The device operates quietly with a fanless design, making it suitable for deployment in noise-sensitive environments. While the switch does not come with a redundant power supply, it supports an external RPS (optional) for increased power reliability. LED indicators for power and switch ports provide at-a-glance status monitoring, allowing for quick and easy troubleshooting. In summary, the Cisco MS225-24-HW is a flexible and efficient switch that meets the demands of modern network environments. Its combination of high-speed connectivity, stacking capability, and environmental tolerance, coupled with advanced security and management features, make it a solid choice for businesses looking to optimize their network infrastructure.
