Product Review

The Cisco MS225-24P-HW offers a solid balance between port density and performance, with 24 1GbE RJ45 ports and 4 10GbE SFP+ ports, complemented by a total switching capacity of 128 Gbps, making it suitable for mid-sized network environments. However, its power consumption peaks at 448 W under maximum load, which could be a consideration for energy-conscious deployments. Additionally, while it supports essential features like DHCP snooping and IPv4/6 ACLs, potential buyers should note the lack of an integrated redundant power supply, though an external RPS is available as an option.


The Cisco MS225-24P-HW switch is designed to meet the demands of modern networks, offering a comprehensive solution for enterprise environments requiring high-speed connectivity and reliable performance. This device is equipped with 24 1GbE RJ45 ports and 4 10GbE SFP+ ports, providing a versatile platform for connecting a wide range of devices. Additionally, it features 2 hardware stack ports, enabling users to easily expand their network by linking multiple switches. With a power over Ethernet (PoE/PoE+) capacity of 370 W, the MS225-24P-HW can power connected devices such as IP phones, wireless access points, and surveillance cameras directly through the network cables, simplifying the infrastructure and reducing the need for additional power supplies. The switch's switching capacity is 128 Gbps, and it supports a stacking bandwidth of 80 Gbps, ensuring efficient data transfer and high performance across the network. The MS225-24P-HW is designed for rack-mounting in a 1 RU space, with dimensions of 1.72 inches in height, 19 inches in width, and 9.05 inches in depth. It weighs 8.18 lbs, making it both compact and lightweight for easy installation and management. The switch operates efficiently with an idle power load of 21 W and can handle a maximum power load of 448 W. This device is built to operate reliably under various environmental conditions, with an operating temperature range from -5 °C to 50 °C and a humidity range from 5% to 95%. Its RJ-45 ports support speeds of 10/100/1000 Mbps, while the SFP+ ports can handle speeds of 1000/10000 Mbps, accommodating a range of network demands. The Cisco MS225-24P-HW includes several advanced features to enhance network security and management: - DHCP snooping to prevent unauthorized DHCP servers from allocating IP addresses. - Support for IPv4/6 ACLs, allowing fine-grained control over traffic and enhancing security. - Automatic firmware upgrades to ensure the device is always running the latest software version. Its fixed fan operation ensures consistent cooling, and the optional external redundant power supply (RPS) provides an additional layer of reliability. LED indicators for power and switch ports offer at-a-glance monitoring of the device's status. Key hardware specifications include: -
  • 24 1GbE RJ45 ports and 4 10GbE SFP+ ports for versatile connectivity.
  • 370 W PoE/PoE+ capacity to power devices directly through network cables.
  • 128 Gbps switching capacity and 80 Gbps stacking bandwidth for high-performance networking.
In summary, the Cisco MS225-24P-HW is a powerful and flexible switch that is ideal for businesses looking to build a high-performance, scalable network infrastructure. Its combination of speed, power, and security features, along with its compact and efficient design, make it a valuable asset for any network environment.
