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.
