10GBase-T switches, which one to choose?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi

 

I'm currently in the process of putting together a shopping list for a newly started video editing/post-production house.

I'm building everything from scratch, and when it comes to networking, I'm not the most experienced.

Our setup needs to serve 4K raw footage to 4 (iMac pro) clients, no proxies.

Furthermore, I'm going to build a transcoding server eventually, which will probably be threadripper based.

 

I'm going to need at least 12 ports, all at 10GB. 

 

What can you recommend, I've been looking at the Netgear XS724EM, but it might be too overkill?

 

Thanks!

check ebay/kijiji/craigslist for used stuff. you can get some steep discounts on enterprise dumping older gear or businesses just trying to minimize loss on stuff they'd otherwise throw away.

How many ports do you need?  That will probably determine what kind of switch to look for.

Haha, yea i kinda wanted to say do you want to future proof over 12 ports but I was half asleep.


Either way, here are some better options depending on port requirements but i would advise looking at the second hand market as brand new these are big £££/$$$;

In no particular order, here are some 10GBase-T switches that are 36 port and smaller, some have SFP+ capability also and/or combo ports.
