    Hi, This is a recent build - AP's in main building will be running back to the same switch.

    An HP 1910G will be fine. The reason it's cheaper is that it is only web GUI managed and, as stated, has no 10Gb option. A 2910al would give you the option to add a 10Gb module at a later date so is a little more future proofed.

    The reason it's cheaper is because it can't handle big loads, and doesn't have any useful features. It is a budget edge switch for a small office building, it isn't designed to have core or near edge capabilities which is essentially what the OP wants. If it did I would be using them and saving the school some money.

    I have to disagree, it's a wire speed non-blocking switch. It has 104Gbps switching capacity on the 48 port model and 56Gbps on the 24 port - so no load issue there. It supports static routing at 13.3Mpps, VLANs, Jumbo Frames,QoS, IPv6, SNMP, STP amongst others, it's a fine fit for a simple network.

    Agreed it's not a core switch, but the OP is looking for edge switches to provide PoE to access points.
