7941 and 7961 power consumption

We are thinking to utilize the Linksys SRW224P for some of our SMB solutions when the Catalyst 3560 is a bit cost prohibitive. Are there any specs of the new 7941 and 7961 so we can figure out if this is a viable solution? Does anyone else create a decent PoE switch? Has anyone used the Linksys SRW224P?

Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks,

Ohamien

Re: 7941 and 7961 power consumption

To answer the second question, have you considered a Cat 500 Express instead of the Cat 3560? Savings are pretty significant, works well, but does not have a CLI - it is web config only! Also, you might look into a company called Belden which makes an in-line power device module which, in effect, turns a regular switch (such as a 2950T-24) into a PoE switch.

Hope the above is helpful!
