I have a requirement for putting network switches into office area’s within our building, and due to budget I’m looking at managed smart switches, these are to act as edge switches. I have narrowed it down to three models which are;
Zyxel GS1910-24 or Zyxel GS1920-24 if fanless
HP 1810-24G (v2) (J9803A)
The switch needs to be fanless and have at least 24 ports, the features I would also like the switch to have are vlan capable, spanning tree protocol, port mirroring, trunking / link aggregation.
On a side note I have also been looking at the Zyxel GS1920-24 and cant seem to find stated any where if this switch is fanless or not, I was wondering if anyone has any hands on experience with this switch?
