[AusNOG] FS.com for temporary 10G switch?

Hi Everyone,

I am considering using FS.com for a temporary 10G switch as they seem cheap and I should be able to get my hands on it in a week or two. Does anyone have any experience with FS switches? Or any other recommendations?

This isn’t something I wanted to resort to but timing has meant I need something cheap that can act as a largely dumb switch with 8 or so 1/10G SFP+ ports, till I can sort out the Juniper QFX boxes I am intending to get. All I need it for is the ports, and some basic VLAN tagging and trunking. And I just need it to not fail for a couple of months :-) Thanks!

I am considering:

·         https://www.fs.com/au/products/122280.html

·         https://www.fs.com/au/products/122281.html

·         https://www.fs.com/au/products/108710.html

Also considering a Ubuiquiti ES‑16‑XG however an admittedly brief search suggests this would be hard to find in stock anywhere.

Appreciate any suggestions/feedback. Thanks!
