    Get some 2920 HP's. they are awesome and brand new. I'm old school and configure CLI with putty.

    The web interface is nice in these babies and gives you info like stats on POE etc...

    These switches are PoE+ thus provide 30w per port. 10gb modules can be installed in the back.

    Only buy these if your cabs are minimum depth 500mm.

    They look funky with one caveat. You have to have a funky budget too... a grand a piece for edge switches is daft for schools IMO.

    We just bought 14 of these for our edge ready for 95 ruckus wireless APs in the summer. We got them for 865 each switch.

    Ah - we're just considering those ourselves.

    Only buy these if your cabs are minimum depth 500mm.
    Thanks, that's good to know.

    We're aiming for 9, again to support Ruckus access points. We got quoted more than 865 per switch, though - where is that price from?

    aye, it's easy to spec a PoE 100mb switch there but generally speaking you wouldn't need gigabit to most PoE devices. That's changing though already. If you do want gigabit and PoE I really, really would suggest something of much better reputation than netgear, but that's mostly because I still don't trust (or understand enough, perhaps!) how that works. Plump for HP or Cisco if you need it.

    You need every port GB, or else how can you throw a 450mb/600mb access point at full pelt down your network. You will notice major speed issues when connected to 100MB switch port.

    The only reason why we are doing, what we are doing is because our focus on teaching and learning will be based around 1:1 learning with a mobile device through our VLE firefly.

    95 APs covers both sites, total 10 buildings, sports fields etc....
