Re: Most energy efficient (home) setup

I like the Juniper EX2200C switches. They are only 12-port, but have 2 SFPs. They are very low power, and have no fans.

However, I am still waiting (it has been several months) for them to send me the correct rack mount brackets (which are 
a separate purchase).

That doesn't require constant rebooting?

I can't comment to the rebooting, but a couple of years ago I looked
at the Allied-Telesis AT-9000-28SP, which is a smack steeply priced
(~$1,500) but has flexible optics and is managed.  And at ~35 watts
is the lowest powered managed gigabit switch I was able to find for
our solar powered telescopes.  The grant that was going to fund that
fell through, so I'm still running the 90W+ Catalyst 2900XL with two
1000Base-X modules and 24 10/100 ports instead, but the AT unit
looked pretty good as a pretty much direct replacement with extra
bandwidth.
