I have a rack mounted switch with SPF ports and adapters coming, trying to remove anything provided from Telus that really doesn't need to be part of my network. Get rid of bulk, get rid of transition points etc. I have 300/300 not that it matters, but have a 10 port netgear POE switch with a couple 10 GBe ports, and like 8 2.5/5 ports as well as an SPF port.
I'm going to be ultimately setting up 3 wifi-mesh so POE was required, and have a NAS/Server and computer so needed the 10 GBe and 2.5/5 ports.
I shouldn't need a second switch with the 10 ports, i'll be using 8, so I got an unused SPF port to saturate. Can I get rid of the Alcatel or does it do some authentication for Telus?
I'd make sure you have a router somewhere so that all of the devices on the switch aren't trying to pull external IP addresses.
