Meraki Switch

Version: Meraki Switch, MS series.

Cisco Meraki offers a broad range of switches, built from the ground up to be easy to manage without compromising any of the power and flexibility traditionally found in traditional enterprise-class switches. The Meraki dashboard provides unified policies, event logs, and monitoring, making it easy to manage network deployments.

Netsurion Open XDR helps to monitor events from Meraki Switches. It will trigger alerts whenever it detects an error or port block. It’s knowledge object and flex reports will help you to analyze STP changes, port changes and 802.1x authentications.

  • Security – 802.1x client authentication and de-authentication details and STP port blocked.
