Choosing the Right Switch for AMP VLAN


Overview

When planning a VLAN switch system, one of the most important decisions is the managed gigabit Ethernet switch that is the center of the Just Add Power matrix.

AMP will fully configure the switches listed below and Just Add Power provides drivers to support them.

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


Supported Switches

The switches listed below are supported by AMP VLAN.

*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.


Netgear

All Netgear GSM 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.

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.
