1. Can a switch with the POE function be used for the miner?
Answer: It cannot be used. The POE switch has a 48V power supply and will burn out the control board. Using a burned-out control board in the POE switch will invalidate the warranty and cannot be repaired，You only have to replace the new control board.
POE switch introduction-POE (Power Over Ethernet) means that without any changes to the existing Ethernet Cat.5 cabling infrastructure, it is used for some IP-based terminals (such as IP telephones, wireless LAN access) Point AP, network camera, etc.) while transmitting data signals, it can also provide DC power technology for such devices. Therefore, it is a switch that supports Power over Ethernet.
2. How many ports switches are the miner use?
Answer: 4 ports, 8 ports, 12 ports, 16 ports, 24 ports, 48 ports, etc. can be used.
3. Which switch is recommended for the miner connection?
Answer: At present, most of the security features of managed switches support port isolation, which can effectively isolate viruses from spreading between miners.
Non-network-managed switches are inexpensive, easy to maintain, and flexible for users. However, the disadvantage is that the reliability of data transmission is poor. Furthermore, the phenomenon of packet loss is serious, which causes congestion, blocking, and flood prevention of the entire network, leading to the paralysis of the entire network.
The specific switch used needs to be considered based on the actual number of miners.
4. Is there a requirement for the speed of the switch's network port?
Answer: One hundred megabytes or one thousand megabytes are acceptable.
