wifi-6 is not the same as 6ghz wifi band :p. I just haven't seen any devices that we can buy that uses wifi-6e and probably won't be at least a few years out until it gets adopted, like Vesalius pointed out.
These both have the same architect, but core for core, it looks like the D-1700 is faster and more power efficient. For example, compare the D-1736NT and D-2733NT, where both have the same 8c/16t and 15mb cache. D-2733 uses 19% more power (at least on paper), but is 29% slower base clock.
I would not depend on this microtik switch if it's running in a crucial environment for your business. It's popular because it's the cheapest 10gbe switch available, but it's known to have issues from the get-go. I would trust a used ICX6610 to last longer than that new microtik.
Option 3 would...
Ruckus has 2 separate models for PoE injectors that's specific to 1g and multi gig:
So I'm assuming not ALL 1g PoE injectors will be able to go higher. If any injectors do, then I think it might just be straight passthrough from the...
I use intel p4510 4tb for standalone esxi hosts, and 8tb for vSAN capacity tier. They're a good balance between capacity, performance, and cost for VM storage.
You can find a used one on ebay with 98% endurance life remaining for about $400-500
Any suggestion on how I can test this? The single device would have to have wifi-6 and 4 internal antennas to max out the 2.5g of the AP. I have two macbook pros, but these wouldn't qualify (unless I use both to aggregate the speed).
If you're willing to go with Prosumer hardware instead of used enterprise, then consider the QNAP QSW-M2116P-2T2S. It checks off almost every one of your requirements except redundant PSU and number of ports you use, which you can just add another ICX 7250-24 or 6450-24.
I was in the almost...
It's the QNAP QSW-M2116P-2T2S :D
Let me start with the shortcomings. It costs 3x more than a good deal on popular used enterprise switches, it's only L2, and probably not as reliable.
But the main selling point is that it has multigig 2.5g PoE+ and 10g PoE++ which is very hard to come by...
You should be able to achieve this for a lot less than $2k if you're willing to buy used enterprise gear. OPNsense isn't too demanding for hardware. But just make sure your ISP provides at least 3 IP addresses for OPNsense high availability since you're using CARP.
A pair of stacked ICX6610 is...
I'm looking for recommendations for the largest SSD for a TrueNAS box. I do not have enough ports or pcie lanes for NVMe, so ideally SATA drives, and used enterprise ones.
If all else fails, I'll pick up some Samsung 870 QVO 8TB ones.
