Looking for rack mountable (not desktop) PoE gigabit switch for a Raspberry Pi project. Minimum 4 PoE ports, and ideally fanless (not a deal breaker). Unfortunately all the models for sale in retail are desktop models that can't be rack mounted. 

 

Ideally I just need a basic 8 port model with PoE. Doesn't need to be managed. Will consider larger 16-24 port models if the price is right. 

 

Pick-up in Auckland.

It's pretty rare to find a switch so small that's rack mounted. I've used a few of these lately as they were one of the few options available. https://www.pbtech.co.nz/product/SWHNGR1860/NETGEAR-ProSAFE-GS108LP-8-Port-Gigabit-Unmanaged-P

If you don't mind a bit of metal work to make your own brackets, you can find some on AliExpress (5-port, one uplink) that are 1U high and have screws holes for mounting. If you do a bit of research you may be able to find the manufacturer and order the switch/brackets from them, but I've not seen AliExpress sellers offering these.

I'm sure once upon a time it wasn't uncommon for smaller desktop switches to come with brackets to rack mount them. I guess like everything costs have been cut and its not longer a in demand option.

 

I did wonder if/how that Netgear model was rack mounted, but couldn't find any photos online to confirm it was actually rack mountable or an error in the specifications. There's also an unmanaged TP-Link model that is rack mountable, but at $220 it feels a bit pricey.

That Netgear switch comes with very wide 1U wings that attach to each side. Reason I've used it is solely because of the price.

Do these use a wall wart or power brick? The latter isn't terribly practical for a rackmount switch unless the bracket also includes mounting space for it.
