Cisco Meraki MS130R Ruggedized Switch

Today Cisco Meraki announced the MS130R rugged switch.  This is the first rugged Meraki switch; it's IP30 certified with an operating temperature of -40 to 70 degrees Celsius.  This enables the cloud first Meraki configuration and support model in harsh/challenging environments. 

The switch includes eight 30W POE+ capable 1GbE RJ45 ports and two 1GbE SFP ports.  As with any industrial/rugged switch it can be powered by DIN rail DC power or an external AC power supply.  The two SFP ports support a variety of Cisco ruggedized SFPs: GLC-SX-MM-RGD, GLC-LX-SM-RGD, GLC-ZX-SM-RGD, and GLC-T-RGD.

One of the most exciting things to me is that the MS130-X (also announced today) and MS130R will  support Adaptative Policy in a future MS firmware update.  This will extend the Adaptive Policy boundary to harsh environments to enable micro-segmentation in even more locations.  Meraki Adaptive Policy also seamlessly integrates with Cisco Identity Services Engine for syncing Security Group Tags (SGTs) between Cisco ISE and the Meraki Cloud.
