Default 16-port gigabit with POE and fanless

I have an 8-port switch that I have outgrown

Of course I could get a second 8-port switch and cascade it from the first one to get 13-ports.

Given my "server room" my first criteria is that the switch has to be silent, i.e. fanless. Jumbo frame support is also needed.
Now if it also would provide POE over at least a few ports which would allow for better AP and network camera locations.
Does not need to be managed or smart, but if it is, I could use some of the basic functions as well.

There are a few 8-port switches that meet the above criteria, but 16-port switches seem to be rare, and most have noisy fans.

Cheers, Lorant

I'm not aware of any POE switches that are silent/fanless.

I think the SMC SMCGS8P-Smart is fanless and can provide upto 60W total of POE on all 8 ports. From what I remember Linksys 8-port smart switches are also fanless.
I am not aware of any in 16-port version. There are few 16-port and 24-port switches that do not have POE and are fanless.

Same here. I tried to look for one a year ago for a customer for a one-off job and couldn't find one. Most PoE switches I've dealt with draw a fair bit of power, obviously, thus I think it would be hard to find a fanless one.

Gigabit and PoE are not mutually exclusive.

true only on gear that has seperate power outlets for things but most use the outer pairs which then brings it down to a 100mb connection. and for domestic gear this is fine but commercail gear would offer more choices....

also to the op 24 ports for most vendors is the smallest they would have POE on their switches
