Product Review

The Fortinet FS-448D-POE switch offers a comprehensive set of features suitable for medium to large-scale deployments, with 48 GE RJ45 PoE ports and 4x10 GE SFP+ ports enhancing network flexibility and scalability. However, its power consumption is relatively high at an average of 417W, potentially increasing operational costs in energy-sensitive environments. Additionally, while the switch's support for up to 4K VLANs and dual-stack IPv4/IPv6 routing is advantageous for complex network architectures, the optional redundant power supply feature may necessitate additional investment for critical applications requiring high availability.


The Fortinet FS-448D-POE is designed to meet the demands of modern network environments, offering a comprehensive solution for high-speed data transmission and power supply to connected devices. This switch provides a total of 48 Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 ports and 4 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ ports, making it suitable for a variety of networking needs. It also includes a dedicated 10/100 management port and an RJ-45 serial console port for efficient network management and configuration. One of the key features of the FS-448D-POE is its support for Power over Ethernet (PoE) across all 48 RJ45 ports, compliant with the 802.3af/at standards. This functionality allows the switch to deliver both power and data over a single cable, simplifying the cabling process and reducing the need for additional power sources for PoE-capable devices such as IP cameras, VoIP phones, and wireless access points. The switch has a generous PoE power budget of 370 W, accommodating a wide range of devices. Regarding performance, the FS-448D-POE boasts a switching capacity of 176 Gbps and supports up to 262 million packets per second (Mpps), ensuring smooth data transmission even under heavy network loads. The switch is built to handle a large number of MAC addresses, up to 16K, and supports up to 4K VLANs, providing flexibility in network segmentation and enhancing security. Its network latency is impressively low, at less than 1µs, facilitating real-time applications and services without noticeable delays. The FS-448D-POE is designed with reliability in mind, with a mean time between failures (MTBF) of more than 10 years, indicating a high level of durability and stable operation over time. Additionally, it is IPv4/IPv6 dual stack routing ready, ensuring compatibility with current and future network protocols. Physically, the switch has a compact form factor, occupying only 1 rack unit (RU) in a rack mount setup, with dimensions of 1.73 x 16.1 x 17.3 inches (44 x 410 x 440 mm) and weighing 13.44 lbs (6.1 kg). This makes it an ideal choice for space-constrained environments. Power efficiency is another notable aspect of the FS-448D-POE. It requires a standard 100–240V AC power supply, with an average power consumption of 417 W and a maximum of 419 W. For environments requiring uninterrupted power, an optional redundant power supply (FRPS-740) is available. Despite its power capabilities, the switch has a relatively low heat dissipation rate of 177 BTU/h, contributing to a cooler operating environment.
  • Total Network Interfaces: 48x GE RJ45 and 4x10 GE SFP+ ports
  • Power over Ethernet (PoE) Ports: 48 (802.3af/at) with a 370 W budget
