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.

For multi-switch systems, all switches MUST be from the same manufacturer, but may be different models.
