I'm putting together a VoIP phone system for our office. I need advice on what switch to buy to pull it all together. I'll have 8 phones, 4 CCTV cameras, and a wireless router. I want POE for all the phones plus possibly the cameras and anything I may need to add later. I need something that is easy to provision. Most of our computers will be patched to our phones. I've looked at the SFE2000P 24-port 10/100 Ethernet Switch with PoE but I'd like some direction and advice. I know I want one switch that can handle everything.
For your PoE phones and CCTV, what is the power draw? 15.4w, less, more?
Cisco recently released the 2960S which stands for "stackable". The PoE version can support up to 30w of power. If you want to consider future-proofing, I'd definitely recommend this. First customer shipment date is mid-April.
