16 or 24 port switch feedback?

Does anyone have feedback they want to share on the 16 or 24 port switch? I am very curious what the real world user experience has been like so far.

All I can say about it now is that it just works. I currently still have a flat network and still need to configure my Firewalla Purple SE. Then I will also start working with VLANs.

A fiber optic internet connection will be completed sometime next year. Then I will also start working with IPTV and therefore IGMP.

Thank you Niels. That’s really the best thing to hear though, right? It just works… it’s almost boring because you don’t have to tinker with it all the time! :grinning:

While I’m not able to comment on performance, my problem and resistance to purchasing any of the switches is the low POE budget. I’ve got 3 AP’s and have been considering deploying two more for outdoor coverage. Even with the 16 port, I’d only be able to power one more AP (4 total) before over subscribing power. I chatted with Matt about about this yesterday. The 8 port wouldn’t even support my existing deployment without the use of an injector.


It works without any problems. The temperature display is nice and shows 30 degrees. It’s a bit unusual that only ports 1 to 8 offer PoE. I would have liked this on all ports. The power consumption display is slightly lower than on other switches (Aruba 2930F). Currently 6.4 W compared to 7.0 W previously.

They don’t actually use anywhere near the quoted power.
