The GS110TP is a 8 port 10/100/1000 w/POE + 2 port SFP switch, no fan:
Note that it only has a 48w power budget, so it can't do full power
on each port.
The GS108T-200 is the companion switch, 8 ports 10/100/1000 and it
can be powered by POE on the uplink port:
It uses 6W, so 8 ports * 6W is 48W, hey, you can put one of these
on every port on the GS110TP! I have a feeling that's exactly what
Netgear was thinking!
It occurs to me to wonder why no one makes, say, a 24 port POE switch
with only enough full power budget for 4-6 ports, *but binding posts on the
back for -48*, so if you need to build a Really Big Switch, you can just
feed it from as big a rectifier/battery stack as you want.
Or *is* there one, and I just haven't come across it yet? :-)
