    Any considerations on a multi-gigabit (1, 2.5, 5, 10) switch?

    I haven't seen any multigigabit copper SFP transceiver on the market.

    Dell 5524p Ubiquiti optics

    I've personally deployed some FS 10GB transceivers together with fiber patch cables. I just hooked them up to my Dell switches. The connection is solid and works very well. Dell 10GbE SFP+ Transceiver Modules | FS.COM

    How can I test if my data cabling, punch-downs & jacks are 100%?

    You will need a cable tester to troubleshoot the cable faults.

    Managing multiple UniFi sites

    Layer 3 adoption and management works really well, all of my production APs are managed on a single controller on a different subnet, all across the internet.

    Arista DCS-7050Q-16 transceiver compatibility

    Haven't used Brocade but ordered some QSFP+ DAC cables from FS.COM to connect all our switches (Cisco Nexus 9000 N9K-M6PQ-E). We had no hassle in terms of achieving speed and performance for the Mellanox and Net-gear/CISCO 40G Ethernet switches etc.

    Juniper EX4300 & 10GBASE-T SFP+ RJ45 transceiver

    Many folks purchase 10G copper SFP+ modules from Microtik and FS.COM. Their third-party modules are with high compatibility and you can get with decent price.

    Upgrade to 10GB - How?

    Passive twinax DAC is the most cost-effective option to connect two SFP+ ports.

    Gigabit + 10Gb Switches under $550

    Thinking of buying this 48-Port Gigabit SFP L2/L3/MPLS Switch with 4 10GE SFP+ Uplinks: 48-Port Gigabit SFP Network Switch w/ 4 10GE SFP+ Slots | FS.COM

    Mellanox Connectx-2 temperature (and alternatives?)

    This equipment should not be operated in an area with an ambient temperature exceeding the maximum recommended: 55°C (131°F). To guarantee proper air flow, allow at least 8cm (3 inches) of clearance around the ventilation openings.

    IP Camera Recommendations

    IP camera requires a license that is not free. If you need to add more cameras then you will need more licenses per cameras. We recommend to use a stand-alone NVR.

    Keystone patch panels - what are my options?

    If I am doing a small install I will buy a patch block and bracket and however many jacks I need. Otherwise I'll use a fixed configuration panel (12, 24, 48 ports) with 110 terminations. Cat5e/Cat6/Blank Keystone Patch Panels & Accessories | FS.COM

    10G Compatibility - Netgear ProSafe GS752TXS

    Yes, the compatibility should be taken into account when connecting two switches. But it seems that this DAC is only compatible with Mellanox, but not with the GS752TXS.

    Fastest File Transfer over 40gigE.

    File sharing depends on the source and destinations, and how each interface is configured.

    Wiring Home Network w/ Fiber

    I've got the cat6a trunk cable from FS.COM. They are well constructed. Deploy my networks easier and faster than those I purchased before. Cat6a Trunk Cables | FS.COM

    ConnectX-2 Lx EN network card and optical transceivers

    MNPA19-XTR A2 cards can work with the 10GBASE-SR SFP+ transceiver.
