So, there you go, a way to star 8 8-port switches off a central switch
with the remote switches needing no power. This allows UPS'ing the
central switch only, while knowing they will all stay up.
In some cases, that's not always a great idea. Consider the situation
whereby a remote "site" served by a remote switch has two or more
network devices that rely on another in a local fashion... such as in
the case of a NAS or SAN serving a local workgroup of machines. If you
have to take down the central switch for whatever reason then you cut
power to the remote switch and all the associated end-station lose local
network connectivity as well.
Of course you can always resort to manually plugging in the remote
switches. Can those GS108T-200 perform auto-cutover to AC power? That
would be ideal.
