FeaturesThe new topology feature intelligently and automatically maps the network. The map shows direct and redundant links across wired and wireless infrastructure. It gives you a hierarchical, physical layout of how your gear is interconnected. You can see how your equipment is deployed. You can search for devices by name, type, or tag.
The simple, intuitive interface represents a Meraki MX security appliance with a square, a rectangle represents a Meraki MS switch, and Meraki MR access points are shown by circles. Non-Meraki devices on your network are represented by an empty diamond shape. Non-Meraki devices will be shown on the topology map if they are within one hop of a Meraki device.
Hovering over a device will give you information about the device type, number of clients and any pertinent service alerts.
It will also show redundant and blocked links to help prevent data loops.
The new topology feature is a simple, intuitive look at your network. For full functionality, the network must include a Meraki MS switch. It will show non-Meraki devices and can even give limited data on them depending on the device.
