  1. Hi Guys, I'm no networking expert and so would appreciate a bit of guidance. I have this afternoon been passed a enquiry from a electrical company for whom we do a lot of work, they have fitted 20 Paxton Net 2+ TC/IP devices, basically they have asked the data company to provide a data point to each unit which they have however they have reached the point where the job is at handover and don't know how to make it work, they have approached us but I'm not over familiar myself. Looking at the manual it says that each point connects to the LAN (POE) at present each data line is just wired back to a port in the cab and no switching is installed. So question is whats involved, do we just need to get a 24 port POE switch, patch each of the ports to this and then connect the computer running the paxton software to this? is it that simple or am I missing something? Next question, what is the difference between managed and unmanaged switches? And last does anyone know where I can get a cheap 24 port switch with POE that will work? Sorry one more question is there any good courses for networking, is it worth getting some of ourengineers to do a CISCO course and if so any recommendations? Thanks
