We are looking for an 8 port switch that can be powered over ethernet. Looks like a device like this is a powered device (PD). I've heard that cisco makes switch products like this but don't know how to locate them.

I did come across this 5 port startec switch... but more ports would be ideal. This switch does not need to power any additional PoE devices besides itself. https://www.amazon.com/Port-Gigabit-Ethernet-Switch-PoE-Powered/dp/B01273JAD0

This is the current candidate PSE switch: Cisco (SG300-52P-K9-NA) 52-Port Gigabit PoE Managed Switch https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BHZJMB0/

I would prefer cisco or linksys because I'm familiar with those brands but reliability and value are the key items. Cisco can sometimes be expensive.

  • Are you looking for something powered by 802.3something-standard PoE? Does the switch need to power other PoE devices? Do you already have a PoE switch that you are connecting this to, or you expecting it to include some sort of injector? Do you have a budget in mind? Are you preferring Cisco brand specifically due to it being what other hardware you use, or is it just a name of a networking hardware manufacturer you've heard of? Just about any networking manufacturer has something along these lines, but it may be helpful for you to edit with more details on your needs.

Here is a candidate switch that can be powered entirely over ethernet but I would like to know of more switch options if others would help contribute an answer: NETGEAR 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Smart Managed Pro Switch (GS108T-300NAS) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07PS6Z162/
