Re: 10 Gbps switch for a condo

Nah, I revaluated my priorities sadly - an IBM 380XD, a Mantiz Venus MZ-02 and an RX580. I'll revisit this mid year, deffo going for the QNAP QSW-1208-8C 12-Port (https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product. ... 6833831014) and will have PCI-E or TB3 nics to support this.

I could see something like this for a smaller home and higher speed traffic:

-with 1 10gb out and 2 other 4 port bonded (link aggregation) cards:

You could also add 10gb peer-to-peer with a dual-port card for the server..

I'm thinking of revisiting this idea again... with THIS guy! https://mikrotik.com/product/crs305_1g_4s_in
An affordable ~130 USD 10Gbps switch! Downside it's that it's only 4x10Gbps ports and it seems to be a pain to get? (not easily accessible) and you'll have to use SFP+ cables which may require specific brands (i.e. devices in the chain may only like specific brands, like cisco only working with cisco cables, from what I've heard).
Also that guy can do PoE if you have a supporting device! Now I need to plan my setup, as I need a thunderbolt 2 to SFP+ network adapter as well for this entire thing to work

If you use SFPs with fiber, only the "picky" end can see the brand. Most gear these days will happily use any optic you toss in them. There are some exceptions, but not on recent gear. Finisar, Intel, whatever optics generally just work in nearly everything.

It's the DACs that get picky the most; I grabbed custom ones to do a 10Gbps trunk between a used Aruba switch and a new HPE switch.

But it's definitely cheaper than 10Gbase-T :)

The 'Smart Plus' version is the same price currently.
