Desired switch

Fri Nov 02, 2018 6:11 pm

MT staff :
It would be nice to have a 8PoE + 8non-PoE Gb eth + 2/4 SFP+ cages switch in the 200 to 300 euro range.
Something to be placed between CRS112-8P-4S-IN and CRS328-24P-4S+RM
Any thought ?

+1
Need that too :)
Any of this with internal PSU will be fine:
CRS318-8G-8P-2S+
CRS318-10G-6P-2S+
CRS318-12G-4P-2S+

I think the answer in your use is to simply get a CRS328 which is a little more expensive but has some "growing room".

I hope that dedicated PoE and non-PoE ports will not be a thing in the future and they adopt the standard they are currently setting across all. All ports PoE "if" you choose, this simply means you would want a PoE capable 16 port switch with SFP's.

The main problem with CRS328 is not it's price, but it's size.
It needs a full-depth rack.
So it can be something exactly the size of CRS326 but with few PoE ports and integrated PSU.

Agree, the depth is troublesome if one are to use the switch in other spaces then a full depth rack. I also could make do with less poe ports if the depth is kept smaller.

Would be nice if CRS112 was half rack width with option to join 2 together to make 16 port full width.

And it doesn't look like having 16G and 1-2SFP+ in CRS112 size is something impossible either.

Unfortunately 112 has no 10Gb SFP+
And yes 328 is a beast....
