I need to buy an additional POE switch for my toys. It looks like I can save room in my rack using a 1U enterprise grade switch instead of buying another dumb switch.
I’ve not used a managed switch before. There seem to be some great deals out there. Can y’all tell me of any gotchas I need to consider? And if these are loud? My rack is in the utility room next to the dining room, and there is not a door. I don’t mind learning a little bit, but I am unable to become a certified professional to make it work. I’m comfortable using a CLI, but prefer web based.
