Poe capable Horus friendly switch?

Postby johanneso » Tue May 14, 2019 17:58

Hi,
As I’m about to receive my Anubis I would be interested in powering it over Ethernet for simplicity’s sake. Does anyone have a recommendation for a PoE capable switch that plays well with MacBook Pros, windows as well as Mac, and Horus and Anubis?

Hi

Merging is currently looking into a few options.
https://confluence.merging.com/display/ ... NA+-+AES67

It has to be IEEE 802.3at compliant before all, then there are a few other requirements on the switch side.

We'll inform users when available, for now the SG350-10P loks to be the best option.


Best Regards,
Ricardo

Hi Ricardo,

Any chance of reviewing/finding some small switches, its not much fun having a tiny Anubis in the kit bag but then have to carry a large switch to operate it for monitoring.

Hi David,

For now we are still looking into small PoE switch, our best recommendation is a larger than we'd like for Anubis, it is the Cisco 350-10P. Not ideal for travellers.

Find our listing here.

It's important for a switch to to be configurable, with QoS and that the switch is IEEE 802.3at (PoE+) compliant.
Proposals welcomed. If you find one let us know the model.


Thanks,
Ricardo

Hi David,

Thanks for that.

We had a look at the Ubiquiti switches (they make the Edegswitch 8) and it is very complicated to configure, so it will be a pain for our users.

As for the GS105PE I beleive that it can be powered with PoE but it cannot provided PoE.]
Anything else lest us know.

Best regards
Ricardo

Hi Ricardo

Is there a complete list of required configuration settings such that we could set up an Edgeswitch ourselves?

It would even be possible to provide a configuration file, as the edge switch's configuration can be exported (and of course imported)
