Choice of PoE Switch for new wireless network?
I'm looking for advice on PoE switches. We will shortly be purchasing approx 60 WiFi access points and need a few PoE switches.
I haven't purchased PoE switches for more than 10 devices before now, and as we're in a hurry to spend the money (end of financial year), I don't have a lot of time to research. :redface:
We will probably need a 48 port (or 2 x 24 port) switch in one building, and a 24 port in another. I've been looking at the Netgear ProSafe GS728TPSB but I'm worried it won't be able to power an AP on every port.
It claims a "PoE budget" of 384W. An Aerohive AP claims a 14.5W max power draw on 802.3af.
I'm assuming this then means the total power available divided by the max draw (384W/14.5W) = 26.48, so that should be enough, yes?
Any experts out there who can point me in the right direction or recommend (better) hardware? :dizzy:
