Product Review

The Cisco MS225-48FP-HW offers a comprehensive solution for medium to large-scale network environments, featuring 48 1GbE RJ45 ports and 4 10GbE SFP+ ports, which provide ample connectivity options for a variety of devices and uplink connections. With a PoE/PoE+ capability of 740W, it supports power-hungry devices efficiently, while its switching capacity of 176 Gbps and stacking bandwidth of 80 Gbps ensure high-speed data transfer and network scalability. However, the switch's reliance on external redundant power supplies for enhanced power resilience could be seen as a drawback, necessitating additional investment for critical network infrastructure deployments.


The Cisco MS225-48FP-HW is a network switch designed for efficient handling of data across small to medium-sized enterprise networks. This device is equipped with a comprehensive range of features tailored to enhance connectivity, security, and management in a compact form factor. At its core, the Cisco MS225-48FP-HW boasts 48 1GbE RJ45 ports and 4 10GbE SFP+ ports, providing a versatile mix of standard and high-speed connectivity options for various devices and uplinks. This selection allows for a flexible network design that can accommodate both current needs and future expansions. The switch also includes 2 hardware stack ports, enabling the user to build a unified system of multiple switches with a combined stacking bandwidth of 80 Gbps, thereby simplifying management and enhancing performance. Power over Ethernet (PoE/PoE+) capability is a key feature of this model, offering up to 740 W of power to support devices such as wireless access points, surveillance cameras, and VoIP phones directly through Ethernet cables. This eliminates the need for separate power sources for connected devices, streamlining the network infrastructure. The hardware specifications highlight the switch's capacity for handling large volumes of data with a switching capacity of 176 Gbps. This ensures smooth data transmission across the network, even under heavy loads. The device's form factor is 1 RU, making it compact enough to fit in standard equipment racks with dimensions of 1.72 inches in height, 19 inches in width, and 13.38 inches in depth, and weighing 9.63 lbs. Energy efficiency is addressed with an idle power load of 54 W and a maximum power load of 882 W, reflecting the device's ability to balance performance with power consumption. The operating temperature range from -5 °C to 50 °C and humidity tolerance from 5% to 95% ensure reliability in various environmental conditions.
  • RJ-45 port speed supports 10/100/1000 Mbps, facilitating compatibility with a wide range of network devices.
  • SFP+ port speed extends to 1000/10000 Mbps, accommodating high-speed uplinks and connections.
  • DHCP snooping, IPv4/6 ACL support, and automatic firmware upgrades are integral for network security and maintenance.
The fixed international fan operation signifies the switch's capability to maintain optimal temperature for reliable performance across different global regions. While the device comes with an internal power supply, an external Redundant Power Supply (RPS) is optional for enhanced power redundancy. LED indicators for power and switch ports provide at-a-glance status monitoring, facilitating easier management. In summary, the Cisco MS225-48FP-HW merges high-density connectivity with advanced features for network security, management, and power efficiency in a design that's both compact and durable. Its broad operating temperature and humidity range, along with support for automatic firmware upgrades and external redundant power, make it a versatile choice for organizations looking to build or expand their network infrastructure.
