    NETGEAR’s three new managed PoE switches cater to businesses growing an infrastructure based on PoE devices like VoIP phones, access points, cameras and sensors that all rely on power over Ethernet.

    The GS4118TPP has 16 PoE ports and two SFP fiber ports. With a power budget of 240 W, it’s the beefiest of the three new switches, and includes a slim shape and mounting system designed to let installers be creative when it comes to permanent placement.
    The GS510TPP is an 8 port PoE switch with a power budget of 190 W. It also includes two SFP ports.

    Unlike the other two new models, the 75 W power budgeted, eight PoE port/two SFP port GS510TLP has a fan-less design, making it an ideal candidate for locations or companies that are noise sensitive, such as hospitality-based businesses or hospitals.

    All three managed switches use a browser based admin tool for management, and have the following features:
    • Layer 3 static routing (32 routes)
    • DiffServ QoS policies, LACP Link Aggregation, Broadcast control, Denial of service protection.
    • Layer 2 features VLANs, Rapid Spanning Tree, IGMP Snooping and Querier, IGMP Fast Leave.
    • Per PoE port controls.
    • 802.3az (Energy Efficient Ethernet) power savings.
    Available now, the switches are priced as following:
    • ProSAFE Easy-Mount 16-Port 240W PoE+ Gigabit Smart Managed Switch (GS418TPP) - $399.99.
    • ProSAFE 8-Port 190W PoE+ Gigabit Smart Managed Switch (GS510TPP) - $299.99.
    • ProSAFE 8-Port 75W PoE+ Gigabit Smart Managed Switch (GS510TLP) - $199.99.

    Depends on PoE needs and really if you're already invested into one set of switches or the other already. If you're a Netgear shop, go Netgear, if you're a UniFi shop, go with them. The hardware is nearly identical so it comes down to admin interfaces and slight differences in L3 performance.

    The UniFi model, once prices stabilize, should actually land right in between the TLP and TPP models - which makes sense as it's smack dab between them in power capabilities.

    Jec, do you have any links to the actual hardware used? Tear down?

    What about ubnt us-8-150w heat issues? Too hot or acceptable?

    Does the gs520tlp get got? From what I can tell, it doesn't but that was only one report on Amazon.
