Hi Experts,

I am currently searching for a Network Rack+Patch panel(48 Port +24 Port) and a 48 Port Smart Switch and I am looking on

Would there be a better place to look for all of these? It just seems that many people buy these from Newegg.

I was thinking about purchasing theses products.


48 Port Cat 6 Patch Panel (568 b? )

24 Port Patch Panel ( for an existing switch)

and Rack

Would newegg be the place to go? Is there any reason these would not be compatible?

Thank you in advance!

    You have posted in server TA but so far there's only light network stuff listed. Do you intend to put a server in the rack / cabinet as well?

    See this is why i am glad I asked. We have most of the server stuff we need on our other rack. We are just expanding our number of ethernet lines so I will just have a fiber line running from one switch the other. As far as the Cabinet... I do not feel that I need one since at the moment there will not be any servers on this rack... but most likely in the future
