Initially same as existing line.

The newer switch core is capable of a lot more down the road including static routing.

Based on the VSC-7444

Looking at the specs on that page it says "Up to 26 x 1G, 16 x 2.5G, and 2 x 10G Ethernet ports" is support for the 16 x 2.5G going to show up in the new netonix's?

I think I laid out what will be available as far as port speeds initially in the post above?

Yes the Switch Core Chipset supports 2.5/5G Copper ports and that is on the road map but not initially.

To do 2.5/5G copper ports requires special PHY chips and other parts that drive the cost way up and as of yet there are not many radios that support 2.5G copper so initially we will only support 1G copper ports.

Future models will support 2.5/5G copper but by then hopefully the cost of those PHY chips will come down.

Thanks for the explanation, was just curious :smile:

Do you have a rough ship date and rough cost for the WS2-28-600-DC unit ?

No idea, no earlier than July I would suspect.

Any chance you plan on offering a version with dual power supplies?

The number of our AC power supplies models that fail are less than 0.05% or 1 in 2,000. This is partly due to the fact that we use power supplies that are rated for convection cooling but we implement forced air cooling which significant increases their MTBF.

For example at my WISP I almost exclusively use WS-24-400A which are from the original production runs and I have experience 0 power supply failures.

Most WISPs want "small" units to fit in small boxes, adding a second power supply and adjoining needed circuits and then of course people would want hot swappable so increased chassis costs would increase units significantly.

Also if I went with dual power supplies I would go with lower cost power supplies whereas currently we did not choose our power supplies based on price but rather ratings. For example the 150 watt power supplies we use are medical equipment rated which equals higher quality and cost but significantly less failures.
