    Linksys has announced the 130W eight POE+ port LGS308MP and 384W twenty-six POE+ port LGS326MP, which includes two gigabit SFP/RJ45 combo ports.

    Designed for growing businesses, the two new switches operate according to the 802.3at IEEE standard, delivering up to 30 watts per port sending out power to networked business devices including IP cameras, VoIP phones, APs, and networked audio.

    Key features for the new switches include Link Aggregation, IGMP snooping, port authentication, MAC-based security, DHCP snooping, IP-MAC binding, Spanning Tree Protocol and storm control.

    Available now, MSRPs for the eight-port Business Smart Gigabit PoE+ Switch - 130W (LGS308MP) and the twenty-six port Business Smart Gigabit PoE+ Switch - 384W (LGS326MP) are $249.99 and $529.99, respectively.

    Linksys (Belkin) has a lot of competition in this space vs. Cisco, HPE, Netgear, even Zyxel. I'd take a Zyxel GS1920-24HP for $100 less and 2 more uplink ports, plus it's fairly well proven and their support is decent, often better than decent. Wish Linksys well, though. More competition is always better.

    Under Belkin, Linksys has done a better job than they did under Cisco...

    This is commodity tin, and it's a good price for what's offered.
