The right switch?

By Arbeiter ·
Our church is adding cameras for streaming. We will have 3 IP cameras and an iMac. Our tech consultant wants to sell us an HP-Aruba 24 port managed switch for this. Would this be the right equipment choice?

It's one of many "right" choices.

It may be the right choice for this setup because the consultant will be "on the hook" to make it all work.

Frankly my view is it's overkill. But I can't guess why the need for a managed switch over a run of the mill switch. Your consultant should have supplied why this is needed over some 50 buck unit or why that many ports.
