Yeah, I'm thinking the same. My plan was to make my own rail mounts on a printer to support a couple of lengths of aluminum angle cut to rack depth and either set the switch on that or fab brackets that slide onto those and screw into the switch. Either way the materials are readily available at the hardware store for a whole lot less than the cost of actual rack ears on eBay.I don't have any experience with 3D printing but not sure if the material used for making the brackets has enough strength to withstand this application especially for 6610. The rear of the switch sags due to the weight. Imagine the twist excerted even on the OEM metal brackets. It may be ok for 6450.
Thank you. any recommendations for good router (wired only), more details below? I will probably sell/give away Unifi switch 24 out of the setup below as it serves no purpose.you won't be able to do any of that with an L3 switch because you'll have 1 IP from your provider, to use that on anything more than one device you're going to need to perform NAT, which L3 switches do not do
Have you tried dual wan setup on the existing Mikrotik router?Questions
1) could Hex handle two ISPs with 600Mbs link or should I upgrade?
2) any of the shelf recommendations (Mikrotik RB4011iGS+RM ? UBNT edgerouter model?) I do not think unifi has anything in the same price range and functionality I want and there is no news for refresh of the USG
3) if I roll my own (pfsense) , what would CPU requirements be? I have a dual core Qotom laying around with 3215U CPU which I do not think would handle it.
Just want to say THANK YOU for all you did. You introduced at least one person to 10G, enterprise grade hardware, and better understanding of networking. Ignore the <> who were somehow thinking it is 'their' licenses and selling with it...if anyone already has switches enroute etc pm for licenses so you don't have bricks
Couldn't agree more. You've been helpful to everyone here, with beginners to advanced users, a huge thanks, really.Just want to say THANK YOU for all you did.
