    What switch do I really need?

    I'm setting up a surveillance system. I have to use a P2P bridge between 2 buildings at 2 different sites. The bridges I'm using are a Ubiquiti bridge. When I was on another forum that dealt with cameras, many said that I should make my whole system Ubiquiti. Well, that may be great for some, but I already have a new $200 + router, and would like to keep it instead of switching to a Ubiquiti one. I am in the need of several switches though. I need ones that are PoE, and will be able to supply enough power to a couple of PTZ cameras. At one site there will be 4 cameras, but 1 or 2 may be PTZ. At the other site, there will be 8 cameras, and 1 or 2 may be PTZ. Do I really need a Ubiquiti switch at those sites. 1- 4 port, and 1- 8 port?

    What are your thoughts on this?

    What would be a good switch? I'm just looking for a recommendation.

    Thanks.

    If these sites on the same ISP you can request a subnet with business services.

    Amazon has many choices for POE, I have no suggestions.

    I have opted for a TP-Link switch. Maybe it is not the best, but I went with an enterprise quality because of the semi harsh environment it is going in.


    I am just about ready to buy one of the Jetstream switches TL-SG3428MP or TL-SG2428P. One has the console port, and more watts of PoE. How important is the console port to you if you have one of these switches? It may be overkill, but for the price, and the watts it gives, there was nothing that came close. Thanks for your help.
