EnGenius ECS2552FP review | GadgetMasti

Managed the EnGenius ECS2552FP network switch (opens in new tab) offers 32 x 1 Gbps and 16 x 2.5 Gbps copper Ethernet ports in addition to four SFP+ ports. It supports Power Over Ethernet (PoE) on all 48 copper ports with a 740W power supply, which is pretty impressive for the form factor. The switching capacity of 224 Gbps is twice the throughput of all ports and should be more than enough to avoid lag.

The EnGenius ECS2552FP (opens in new tab) provides Layer 2 and Layer 3 services such as VLAN tagging and QoS queues. It comes standard with a cloud accessible GUI that is also available locally. The excellent mobile application includes most of the features available in the cloud. Things we didn’t like are the always-on fan, the clunky firmware update process and last but not least the mode LED switch which can confuse the user.

EnGenius ECS2552FP: Pricing and Availability

The ECS2552FP switch has a suggested retail price of $1599 with other models available ranging from eight ports with PoE (ECS1008P) to 28 ports without PoE (ECS1528). The ECS2552FP is ideal for a small business that needs its communications infrastructure, monitoring and data backup all on the same switch.
