Managed 24 port 2/5 or 10gbit switch fabless or low noise

I’m already waiting  a few years for a decent 10gbit switch with basic management function in a fanless or very low noise design.
The only thing you find is those enterprise switches which sound like an airplane 

I would expect with the introduction of wifi6 and 2/5 gbit that some decent 24 port switch would be available in a fanless jacket 

idea :smile:

24 port multi gigabit smart managed fanless with some poe ports with limited budget so you can power some typical zyxel wifi6 points (3-4)
if fanless is not an option use a bigger case and fans to reduce noise for soho or small business use

I run 3 zyxel points WiFi 6 on a fanless Drayton switch without issue.

    Hi Wicky & White782,

    For most existing Zyxel switches, ex. XGS1930, XS1930 series, we have reduce operating fan noise by Smart fan solution! 

    The popularity of WiFi6 definitely drives the demand for 2.5G Switches.  The system needs more power to deliver higher port speed (2.5G), which require busy fan operation to lower the system temperature. That’s typically the design challenge for most enterprise Multi-Gigabit Switch.

    Seeing the growing WiFi 6 demands, Zyxel have introduced XS1930-12HP for SMB which offers both 2.5G speed & low acoustic noise with our latest smart-fan design.

    While it only offers 12 MGig ports, it fits SMB that only needs to power small numbers of AP with simple Switch setup Wizard.

    A new 24-Port 2.5G switch is also on the way with availability around Q4’22.  It will also carry larger power budget and more uplink bandwidths.

    Please stay for our new product intro in the upcoming months.
