[AMP] [Standardized] Choosing the Right Switch


Overview

Building a Standardized Configuration in AMP will fully configure the switches listed below and make them compatible with Just Add Power-provided drivers to support them.

When planning a Standardized System (also known as a VLAN Switching System), one of the most important decisions is the managed gigabit Ethernet switch that is the center of the Just Add Power matrix.

If the Right Switch is too large to fit on one switch or there are multiple switch locations, please see [AMP Standardized Configuration] Multi-Switch Considerations for cable recommendations and bandwidth guidelines for systems with multiple switches.

*To use multiple switches in the same system, the switches must have 10Gb ports. Additionally, all switches MUST be from the same manufacturer, but may be different models.

†Maximum of 48 Receivers on a single switch. The 49th device can only be a Transmitter.


Netgear

All supported Netgear models have rear-facing ports. Switches marked with a "U" have much more POE than is needed for a Just Add Power system, but can be used if the "P" version is unavailable.

Disclaimer: M4250 and M4350 switches ARE supported. M4300 switches are NOT SUPPORTED.

Cisco

All Cisco CBS350 models have front-facing ports.

Disclaimer: Switching commands on Cisco CBS350 switches takes longer than expected (2-3 seconds) due to the way that CBS350 handles sockets for communication.
