Hey all,

 

 

 

Just a quick one before i buy my gear for the network cabinet. 
We are using a 6U wall mounted rack. This Rack here,

 

What switch should i put in there? House is wired for Cat6, Needs to be GIgabit.
What Patch Panel? Just got the generic one there: Patch Panel
Also if there is a better cabinet do let me know! Budget is around $300.. 

Cheers

I've got the TP Link SG1024DE - "smart" switch.  Pretty much just a gigabit switch, but does have some vlan capabilities.  Was reasonably priced, and doesn;t have fans.  I'm pretty happy with it. https://ascent.co.nz/productspecification.aspx?itemID=428455

 

 

 

For patch panel, I had the 24 port dynamix, with fixed cat 6 ports.  if I was doing it again I'd probably look at an unloaded one: http://www.acquire.co.nz/acquire/default.asp?PageID=ProductDetail&pf_id=1951652  Means you can put the cabling direct into a keystone then insert it in the panel.  Unlike a business you're likely to do an initial bunch of runs, then may add further runs once you've finished.  And being able to leave the patch panel in the rack and just insert a new keystone would be an advantage.

I have a Cisco SR2024 24-port 10/100/1000 Gigabit Switch (Linksys) sitting here if interested. Don't know it if would fit in your cabinet but offer is there. Link to the specs are below.

These are great, I'm using the 16port version has done me well for many years
Bit ancient, but does what it needs with no fuss
Pretty sure its a standard 1U configuration, mine sits on a shelf with printer sitting on top of it.

 

For the GUI use Chrome with IE explorer plugin, works a treat

I have that cabinet for my home. I put the Zyxel GS1900 16 port switch in it, it's managed and has a pretty easy web based UI for managing VLANs etc. It comes with arms designed for a full width rack but I just chopped them with a hacksaw and put some new holes in it, it fit fine - I'm just not sure where you'll find one now in NZ. I didn't get fancy for the patch panel and just used the 10" wide Dynamix 12 port cat6, the one you've linked is for a full width 19" rack and won't fit.

I rekon you would be fine with something unmanaged and cheaper. Those TP links look fine.

 

If you find something better then go for it. Im just using a 16 port unmanaged switch. Its cheap, but it works.

A Standard Rack is 19" not 10", so a rack mount switch will not fit in that rack.





Hmmmm

Yup, Wont be throwing money down the drain on a managed product, At the end of the day its to get all those 1's and 0's from dads office around his house. The simpler the better. 

The 10" rack will be good, Should be able to fit a modem/switch/2x punchdown panels easily!

Also we have 2 RG6 to the aerial (1 redundant) and 2 TV's. What splitter can i use for this? Just want freeview on both tv's. Is it possible to watch different shows while sharing the same RG6 feed?
