We are thinking about installing EX2028-P into some offices and other locations that noise is important. When we powered up EX2028-P, we noticed that it is loud even there is no traffic or PoE device on it. Is there any way to turn fans down, if there is no need for them?
This is a great question, because it's something we are already planning. However we don't have an estimate of when this feature will be available. Basically, we will allow the user to put the switch in a mode where the PoE out is limited and the fans will be turned off.
After full analysis, we have found that we would have to drop the PoE power budget too low while turning off the fans. Because of this, we’ve decided to not to implement this capability. Sorry that the fan noise on the EX20208-P is causing an issue for you.
