Cloud-Managed Switching for High-Performance Networks
The Catalyst Meraki C9300 addresses the most demanding enterprise applications by combining the simplicity of the Meraki dashboard with powerful switching hardware. To satisfy high-bandwidth applications and the deployment of high-speed 802.11ax/wifi-6 access points, the C9300-M provides multigigabit ports, 480G stacking, and modular 10/40G uplinks. The C9300-M delivers resiliency with fast stack convergence and StackPower. The C9300-M provides Adaptive Policy using an over-the-wire tag which segments traffic into security groups to deliver scalable security. The C9300-M is integrated under the Meraki dashboard to provide a simply powerful solution to the most demanding wired access applications.
Adaptive Policy provides simple & scalable security policies to segment traffic using Security Groups. Security Groups are created in the dashboard using natural language such as “IOT device” & “Guest.” The security policy intent (e.g., Permit or Deny) is then simply provisioned between Security Groups which results in the segmentation of each group’s traffic. By making security policy management intuitive and scalable relative to legacy IP-address based Access Control Lists, Adaptive Policy empowers operators to confidently secure their network traffic independent of future network changes.
By pooling & distributing power across C9300-Ms using a series of StackPower cables, StackPower provides simple and resilient power distribution across the stack.
