There are now 11 fanless models perfect for multicast IP applications within the portfolio. I did check out the Multicast IP functionality within the product, specifically thinking of their use for IP TV. Seems to respond nicely to IGMP and snooping for multicast applications.
They now came with a huge warranty. "All Cisco 300 Series switches are protected for the life of the product by the Cisco Limited Lifetime Hardware Warranty with next business day advance replacement, where available"
Try it out, they are green, have advancved silicon which makes, say the old part SRW208P (with fan) seem quite old when compared to the new Nicola switch part number SRW208P-K9 (new silicon and fanless) .
These new switches are a very very welcome refresh to the SRW series product. If you have any confusion over the ordering part numbers, just reply to this post.
