Choosing the Right Switch

When planning an installation, one of the most important decisions is the managed gigabit Ethernet switch that is the center of the Just Add Power HDMI over IP system.

Just Add Power supports 2 switch manufacturers with JADConfig and drivers: Luxul and Cisco. JADConfig will fully configure the switches listed below.

*If the Right Switch is a stacking model, please see the Stackable Switch Considerations article for stacking cable recommendations and bandwidth guidelines for stacking.
