I've done lots of configurations with unmanaged switches, but this would be my first application using a managed switch.
I was hoping to get the board's input on these switches, and if they are a good choice. Because we're on the smaller end of things, I'm thinking that we wouldn't need to get into the VLANs, but rather make sure that we have QoS configured properly to allow voice traffic to have priority on the network.
We would have one switch in a remote building, connected through a tunnel to the other switch in our main wiring room via Cat6. Then, a plug into our Cisco router.
Are these difficult switches to configure for our application? I'm pretty knowledgeable and have set up lots of different routers - would these be just as easy? The configuration will most likely fall to me.
Would there be other PoE switches that we might consider which would perhaps fit our needs and be a bit less robust?
I'm grateful for your comments and feedback!
