Cisco Meraki Announces End-of-Sale date for MX80 Firewall

Tuesday, January 26, 2016
On January 26, 2016, Cisco Meraki announced its End-of-Sale for the MX80 medium branch Cloud Managed Security Appliance. You can still order the MX80 through August 30 of this year, or as long as the product is still in stock. After this date, the MX80 will be unavailable via all channels.

The End-of-Support for this device is August 30, 2023. This means if you currently have an MX80 in production, the product will still be supported by Cisco for the next 7 years. The model replacing the MX80 will be the MX84. The good news is there will not be a price increase and the MX84 has a slew of added features. Features of the MX84 include increased throughput, a faster CPU, nearly double the performance and capacity of the MX80, dedicated WAN ports, and two GbE SFP connections for fiber connectivity. The MX84 also features an increased number of LAN connections with 8 Ethernet ports (versus only 4 on the MX80). Fundamentally, a better product for the same price.
