I'd call a professional company to set it up. After all, it's comparable to a small company with, say, 10 employees (= 10 PC's) and some servers. If I owned such a company, I wouldn't do it myself.
The first device I looked at was a 24-ports DGS-3120-24PC/EI for 1500 euro (that's 2000 USD).
I am hoping some of you knowledgeable people out there might be able to help me?
(My networking knowledge is quite basic)
I am building a new house, and am setting up a home network. I have got 15 cat6 runs through out the house ( 2 of them are for external for ip cameras)
All my runs will terminate back to a patch panel in my study.
I am looking for a 24 port switch to work with my set up. I will need POE for my 2 ip cameras.
I am looking for a rack mount, unmanaged gigabit switch. I am hoping to spend <$400. Any suggestions on which switch to buy? I don't want to be playing with settings etc in the switch, I want it to be plug and play.
My future plans are to connect a rack mount nas (something similar to synology rs 212) Does anyone have any reviews/suggestions etc?
I want everything to pretty much run itself in the background.
