SR Fan speed/noise

Our SR switches always run their fans at max speed. The switches are very noisy therefore. The temperature on the switches does not justify this. Is there any plan from aerohive to either better control the fan behaviour or build series that reduce the number of fans? There are competitive offerings that offer fanless operations which can be very useful in small office deployments.

I believe they are meant to be temperature controlled. Perhaps you should investigate this via a support case?

For a particular generation of semiconductor fabrication, the better featured silicon usually gets hotter and needs more aggressive cooling. Be careful that you are comparing like with like.

Hi

I've started a support request and will therefore close this thread.
