I figured I'd start a thread to show off your network and put forward any questions or thoughts relating to networking. So come on all you gurus. Show us what you've got!

2 Cisco SG200-26 Switches, with 4 x 1Gb Links for Trunk between them

Ubiquiti Route

2 Ubiquiti 802.11AC Pro Access Points

 

That's it!

Do you use the full bandwidth? I'm working on beefing mine up. I'll be ordering some new stuff, next week.

Only the Cisco is actually working as a router. The other two are being used as switches and wireless access points.

What's the main reason for using a PoE switch?

Currently reconfiguring network but it will be setup like below,

 

ARRIS SURFboard SB6141 - Comcast 90/12 mbps  ---> Dell R210II - pfSense 2.3.2 x64 + OpenVPN Server  ---> Quanta LB4M - 48x 1Gb + 2x 10Gb SFP+

 

NETGEAR GS724T v3 - 26x 1Gb - Setting up as dedicated iSCSI switch, isolated from rest of network

 

Each ESXi host has 4x connections to the Quanta and will have 4x connections to the Netgear, plus 1x 100Mb iDRAC connection

 

The media nas has a 10Gb connection to the Quanta, plus 1x 100Mb IPMI connection

 

Wireless is handled by a Cisco AIR-LAP1142N - Running Autonomous IOS 15.3 (planning on adding another), just using a single POE injector for now

 

The lab currently only has a 5x 1Gb dumb switch, looking for a inexpensive 8x 1Gb managed switch

I really need to learn more about networking. What is an iSCSI switch?

Its for a dedicated storage network. You typically don't want iSCSI traffic on the same network as the rest of your devices.

 

You can also use VLANs to separate the traffic but I have this switch not doing anything. Once I get a 10Gb switch I'll setup a separate VLAN for iSCSI.

You don't have to run electricity. It is set over the Ethernet cable and split out on the other end. So you reduce your installation and protection (surge protectors, UPS, etc...) costs.

So could you run NUCs this way? What are the typical devices you would use PoE with?

Typically its IP phones, Wireless APs, etc

Looks like it is limited to about 25.5 W, looking at the wiki.

With the evolution of PoE from a fairly low power source (up to 12.95 W per port) to one with devices of up to 25.5 W

Ah, so it's for network devices. That makes sense.

Good day,

 

UPoE can do 60w, but need good switches for that, this not new tech tho, it been for years now.

 

 

Also to add, ip camera most used for that after the IP PBX system and end points and a like.

 

My best

Looking at the wiki it looks like (IEEE 802.3bt "4PPoE") will/may be able to do that.

will introduce two new levels of power: 55 W (Level 3) and 90-100 W (Level 4).

Thanks Abo, that's great info. I hadn't thought of cameras

I guess it will ultimately come down to the specs of the NUC.

Just out of interest how do you anticipate the power of +100w being supplied to the NUC as its Lan port will not be POE or even if it was thats one toasty Lan port!  :P

You would have to use a splitter between the ethernet and the device. You would use an injector to charge the line. That is how I do it since neither my router or the upstairs access point have POE built in. Like this:

https://smile.amazon.com/TP-LINK-Power-Ethernet-Adapter-TL-PoE200/dp/B004UBUB7C/

 

Though, I don't know of any kits/splitters that do 100 watts right now.
