I'd appreciate the collective wisdom of AusNOG for this one.
We have a need to deploy gigabit access switchports facing residential
and business customers.
Traditional solutions (e.g. Cisco gigabit switches) tend to look
discouraging next to their 100mbps cousins on a cost/benefit analysis.
We have some key (yet fairly generic) requirements to distinguish these
layer2 switches from the cheapest end of the market -
* long service life / high MTBF
* key port features include
o switchport protected / client ports prevented from switching
packets to each other
o storm control
* some durability against environmentals - not exactly clean-room
* mature snmp / CLI
* sufficiently future-proof feature set
* API access desirable
* .. and looking to optimize cost per port, in bulk, given the
Could anyone provide, on or off-list, anecdotal suggestions or links to
trusted case studies to help provide basis for selection of an access
