Hi there!
I've been looking for a cheap PoE+ switch that fulfills the following criteria:
  • at least 8 PoE+ ports (1GbE or 2.5GbE)
  • 10GbE uplink port (preferably SFP+)
  • managed (to configure VLANs)
  • rack-mountable
  • low idle power consumption
  • not too loud (will be deployed in a residential building's network room)
The switch will be used to hook up multiple PoE+ access points. Total traffic could easily exceed 1Gb, therefore a 10GbE link to the rest of the network is important. A lot of switches I have found thus far do not have a 10GbE uplink and that disqualifies them for my use case.

I'm fine with buying used enterprise hardware, however it must adhere to the idle power consumption and noise level constraints. As long as all requirements are fulfilled, the cheaper, the better.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
Thank y'all in advance!

Just to offer a different solution - the Mikrotik would do fine, probably - an ICX7150-C12P could also do this.

That Mikrotik switch looks great, especially for the price. I'll keep looking but I'm leaning towards getting this one. Thanks a lot!
