With network traffic everywhere increasing at an unprecedented rate, the demand for larger bandwidth and great speeds is getting higher than ever. Managed PoE switch with unsurpassed advantages in enhancing flexibility & reliability and decreasing OPEX, is intensively applied to keep network at peak utilization. Among the various port design, a  24 port managed PoE switch is considered as a decent option for both business and home network. So when to make a move toward a managed 24-port PoE switch? How to deploy a managed PoE switch 24 port to optimize your network? That’s what we are going to explore in this article.

When to Get a 24 port Managed PoE Switch?

Like standard Ethernet switch, PoE switch comes into two variants: unmanaged and managed PoE switch. Each has places in networking industry, but with different feature and functionality. Experience from those who have dealt with 24 port managed PoE switch demonstrates that it’s a journey well worth taking – it delivers so many flexibilities and scalabilities to a network, as well as multiple management methods. Then when should we introduce a 24 port managed PoE switch to keep up with the growing business requirement? If you need some of the following features, maybe it’s time to go with a managed switch.

Demand for QoS: If you want to tailor your network traffic for QoS, redundancy, port speed, etc. And require more priority and reliability for certain computers, then get a managed switch. A 24 port managed PoE switch will let you remotely disable the power on individual ports, which is useful in case you need to reboot a single AP and don’t want to get up from your chair.

Superior Management of Network: It is nice to have management features when you need them: things like VLANs, port security, port monitoring and other functions becomes even useful when business grows. A 24 port managed PoE switch allows you to see what’s going on in the switch, and what is connected to each port. You can look at error statistics for a port to know if there is a cabling or device problem, you can remotely see which ports are actively in use, and you can also mirror ports to monitor traffic.

VLAN and VoIP Support: Ever want to have Wifi deployment and have a guest network? VLANs can help with this. It is much easier to go with a managed switch if you are going to have multiple subnets/VLANs or need to configure and manage specific ports etc. Moreover, Anything to do with VoIP configuration should always involve managed PoE switches.
