We typically use the Cisco Small Business series for our switches (most locations is the SF300-24P). We are bidding to do a building that is 50+ floors with 4 rooms that will house the switches that power and handle communication for the ~150 cameras. We have the recorders all together in the basement in their central comm area. The design would be to use the SFP ports to terminate fiber running between the rooms (top fibers to middle, middle to lower, lower to basement) as well as a homerun to the basement fro the top and middle rooms to the basement.
I'm looking for any advice or commentary on if this series of switch is going to have any latency issues that could be fixed by using a higher powered switch. I got in over my head with switch specs like Mpps (million packers per secon) where I am not sure what the pack size is of an IP camera, so it is hard to judge it these will suffice. I am good on POE budget (cameras are around 4W) and port capacity with this layout.
Anyone with any experience have recommendations for stepping up a notch with switches? Should I be concerned?
