Product Review

The Fortinet FS-224E-POE switch offers a comprehensive set of features with its 24 Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 ports and 4 Gigabit Ethernet SFP ports, catering to diverse network requirements. However, the limited PoE ports (12 out of 24) and a total PoE power budget of 180W may restrict deployment flexibility for high-power devices. Additionally, while the switch supports an optional redundant power supply (FRPS-740) for enhanced reliability, its average to maximum power consumption (220.18W/223.57W) and heat dissipation could be a concern in environments with strict energy efficiency or cooling requirements.


The Fortinet FS-224E-POE switch is designed to cater to medium-sized businesses and enterprise branch offices, offering a comprehensive solution for network connectivity and power supply to PoE-enabled devices. This switch features a total of 28 network interfaces, which include 24 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) RJ45 ports and 4 GE SFP ports, enhancing flexibility and connectivity options for various network setups. Notably, the FS-224E-POE supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) across 12 of its ports, compatible with both 802.3af and 802.3at standards, providing a PoE power budget of 180W. This enables the device to supply power to connected devices such as VoIP phones, wireless access points, and surveillance cameras directly through the network cables, reducing the need for additional power sources and simplifying installations. The switch's hardware is packaged in a 1 RU rack-mount form factor, with dimensions of 1.73 inches in height, 9 inches in depth, and 12.99 inches in width (or 44 x 230 x 330 mm), making it a compact solution that easily integrates into standard rack setups. The FS-224E-POE requires a power supply of 100–240V AC at 50–60 Hz, with an average power consumption of 220.18W and a maximum of 223.57W. For environments requiring high availability, an optional redundant power supply (FRPS-740) can be utilized, ensuring uninterrupted operation. The device operates efficiently within a temperature range of 32–122°F (0–50°C), suitable for most office environments. Additionally, it is built to withstand a humidity range of 10–90% non-condensing, ensuring continued performance under varying atmospheric conditions. Despite its power, the switch's heat dissipation is managed effectively at 74.29554 BTU/h, maintaining optimal operating conditions. Key performance metrics of the FS-224E-POE include a switching capacity of 56 Gbps and a forwarding rate of 83 million packets per second (Mpps), indicating its capability to handle high volumes of data efficiently without bottlenecking. These specifications make it suitable for networks with high data throughput needs.
  • Total Network Interfaces: 24x GE RJ45 ports and 4x GE SFP ports, providing flexible connectivity options.
  • Power over Ethernet (PoE) Support: 12 ports with a total power budget of 180W, facilitating power supply to PoE devices.
  • High Performance: Switching capacity of 56 Gbps and packets per second rate of 83 Mpps, ensuring efficient data handling.
In summary, the Fortinet FS-224E-POE offers a versatile and efficient solution for network connectivity and power distribution within a compact and reliable form factor. Its combination of PoE support, high switching capacity, and environmental resilience makes it an ideal choice for organizations looking to enhance their network infrastructure with a single, integrated device.
