Best low end poe-out switch?

Mon Feb 22, 2021 11:54 pm

I just bought a few of the access points with hopes of using them with my 4011 without having to use the included injectors. I thought that POE was configurable on all ports, but that was my mistake. It seems to only be available on port 10.

So with that being said, I do currently have a d-link 24 port switch, that I would not mind replacing with a mikrotik switch, as I am pretty happy with the overall performance of their products. Are there any 24 port switches available with poe-out? I seen an 8 port on the website, but the other ones I've looked at seem to not have it so far. Maybe I overlooked it.

I'm not sure what's your definition of "low end". CRS328-24P-4S+RM seems to be the cheapest device offering 24 PoE out ports ...

sorry, by low end, I mean lower price range. So it looks like about $400 is the starting point to get POE available to all ports?

Thanks for the response btw!

I'd rather manage rats than software. Follow my advice at your own risk! (Sob & mkx forced me to write that!)

You can have a look at TP-Link 16-Port Fast Ethernet Unmanaged Switch.
  • Affordable
  • Power saving
  • 9k Jumbo frame
  • 3.2Gbps switching capacity

As others mentioned: Mikrotik doesn't offer cheap switches with multiple PoE-out ports. So you'll probably have to look elsewhere. If you're after cheaper switch (CSS family in mikrotik world) with simple web-ui management and without L3 capabilities, then mikrotik might not be optimal choice anyway (SwOS seems to have quite a few issues on different models). I'd stay away from unmanaged switches though.
