MS 350 FAN NOISE ?

I have a customer who is considering installing an MS350 in a small office environment.

His main concern is the fan noise because the equipment is pretty close to his desktop.

I didn´t find any noise measurement at the environmental specs.

Any experience that could be shared?

Thanks

Do you really need the MS350?

 

There are also fanless models, like the ms120-24

@AVLSOLUTIONS : No body has dbA information on the FAN noise for these products. If noise is a significant concern, then the recommended switches are MS120 or MS250 platforms and they are much quieter.

They are loud, too loud ... But it's all possible with the right rack: https://www.apc.com/shop/us/en/categories/racks-and-accessories/racks-and-enclosures/netshelter-cx-e...

In all seriousness the MS350’s could be overkill for a small office environment.

 

what are his switching requirements as some of the lower spec switches are fanless and run pretty quiet.

How about using WiFi instead?

Given he's wanting a MS350 I am assuming he wants 10Gbe. If so then theres not much he can do about the noise. 

 

If he doesn't require that speed I would go with a smaller model as suggested.
