MS130R Datasheet


Cisco Meraki MS130R extends reliable and secure layer 2 connectivity to ruggedized environments. The MS130R provides up to 240W of PoE and IP30 protection, making it perfect for connecting outdoor access points, cameras, and devices in extreme temperatures (-40°C to 70°C or -40°F to 158°F) and tight spaces.

Designed for adapting to non-traditional environments, the diverse mounting and power options offer deployment flexibility. The powerful Meraki cloud-native platform enables seamless and remote deployment and management of entire Meraki product suite through one centralized dashboard.

The basic initial configuration of the MS130R is just as simple as any other model of MS switch. The links below provide additional information and instructions relating to each step in getting the device setup and configured for the first time. 

  1. Claim the device to an Organization on the Meraki Dashboard
    1. If a Dashboard Organization does not yet exist, Create one
  2. Add the device to a Dashboard Network 
    1. If a Network does not yet exist, Create one first
  3. Physically connect the device to the local network
    1. Connect one of the RJ45 or SFP ports to existing infrastructure to provide a temporary uplink
    2. Power on the device and let it check in to the Dashboard
    3. If necessary, configure a Static IP through the Local Status Page to allow it to communicate with the Meraki Dashboard.
  4. Allow the device to complete check-in and perform any initial firmware upgrades
  5. Finish configuring the device from the Meraki Dashboard 
    1. Manage local VLANs / Port configuration

Airflow around the switch must be unrestricted. To prevent the switch from overheating, you must have the following minimum clearances:

  • Top and bottom: 2.0 in. (50.8 mm) 
  • Sides: 1.0 in. (25.4 mm) 
  • Front: 2.0 in. (50.8 mm)

Caution: When the switch is installed in an enclosure, the temperature within the enclosure is greater than normal room temperature outside the enclosure.  For example the DIN rail power supply also generates heat which may raise the temperature on the switch.  To reduce this increase ventilation or space between the power supply and the switch.  

Power Supply De-rating

De-rating is the reduction of the output power depending on the ambient temperatures.  When the ambient temperature rises above a certain threshold, the amount of power that the power supply can output decreases as the temperature rises, which limits the amount of power the switch can provide to connected PoE devices.

The MS uses LEDs to inform the user of the device's status. Functions are described below, from left to right. For fixed Ethernet ports, the status LED is on the top left or bottom right depending on port orientation. There is also a traffic LED which flashes orange as traffic is sent/received through that port.


LED Status



Solid orange

Switch is unable to connect to the Meraki cloud


Flashing white

Firmware upgrade in process


Solid white

Switch is fully operational and connected to the Meraki cloud



Switch does not have power

Switch Ports


Port is operating at less than full speed. For example:

  • 10/100M on a 1GE port
  • 100M/1GE on 2.5GE ports
  • 1G on SFP+ ports

Solid green

Port is operating at full speed

  • 1GE on 1GE ports
  • 2.5GE on 2.5GE ports
  • 10GE on SFP+

Common Troubleshooting

My device is connected to the network but not checking in to the Meraki cloud or shows a solid Orange LED.

Confirm that the device is powered on and has a valid IP address that is able to access the Internet. Use the Local Status Page to get more information about the connectivity status of the device such as if it can successfully reach the Local Gateway, Internet, and/or Meraki Cloud servers. If necessary, contact Meraki Support for additional assistance.


My Status LED is blinking WHITE 

A blinking WHITE Status LED indicates that the device is in contact with the Dashboard Cloud servers and is performing a firmware update. This can sometimes take 20-45 minutes or more to complete depending on hardware and other factors.


My Status LED is blinking ORANGE

The device is not able to successfully communicate with the Dashboard Cloud servers or there may be a hardware issue with the device. Check the Local Status Page of the device to confirm the status and reach out to Meraki Support for further troubleshooting. 


Event Log 

The most common Event Log messages and their meaning are listed below.

Port STP change

Indicates the STP state of the port has changed, lists the relevant port number, previous, and new states. Typically accompanied by a 'Port status change' event.

Port status change

Indicates the link state of the port has changed, lists the relevant port number, old, and new state. Always accompanied by a 'Port STP change' event. 

SFP module inserted/removed 

Indicates that an SFP module was either inserted or removed, includes SFP module information for inserted events and always lists the relevant port number. 



Every MS license is available in 1-, 3-, 5-, 7-, and 10-year terms.
