I purchased one of these for our ME-1 setup.

My draw to this one was that it was absolutely silent. Some POE switches have fans in them that get quite loud. If you calculate the wattage, this should be able to handle up to 6 ME-1 devices. I currently only have 5 plugged in though. The ME-1 units are not gigabit and cannot take advantage of those speeds, but I did want the gigabit throughput. The switch can be managed, but it doesn’t have to be. It worked for me right out of the box. I also purchased something just like this:

Because I wanted to run shielded ethercon cables to the ME-1 units.
