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 ?
The main problem with CRS328 is not it's price, but it's size.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.
