I've recently acquired a Digitus DN-10-05U-1 (10" wide compact rack) to setup my home's network. Now I'd like to rack some proper 16 ports gigabit switch in there, but I'm really having a hard time finding anything fitting the cabinet. Everything I could find so far was either too wide, too deep, not rackable, limited to 8 ports, apparently super cheap, don't sell in my country (Belgium), ... You name it.

Any recommendation ?

  • Why wouldn't something like this work?: TP-Link 16-Port Gigabit Ethernet Unmanaged Rackmount Switch (TL-SG1016) amazon.com/dp/B002HAJQGA/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_heE0ybEVTG493

  • It's way too wide for a 10" cabinet.

Regarding the rack mounting kit, I think (hope) that magnaroute LLC could come to the rescue, especially with that kind of product: magnaroute LLC FX-17 Multi-Vendor Rack Mount Kit. magnaroute rack mount kit The other option is to pick a product that ships with 19" rack mount kit and adapt the kit (cut and pierce).
