Netgear Switch

Can the GS724TP switch be used as a normal managed switch. What I mean is, it isn't specifically designed for Power Over Ethernet ? How many of the ports are to be used for POE or can all of them be used for this ?

AT 192 watts total, if you use all 24 ports, that will only provide 7.5w per port.  The manual indicates that it supports 15w per port so that would mean only 12 ports will be able to provide POE.

Sorry the switch is a GS724TPS and not a GS724TP

Also, can this switch just be added to a network to replace an existing switch or does it need to be configured through the interface ?

No difference with respect to POE. The TPS is just the stackable version.

If you just want a plain, bare bones switch, then no configuration is needed. If the existing switch has any features enabled, then it will need to be configured.
