PSW-2G4F Ports

When choosing between PSW-2G4F and PSW-1G4F, it is fundamentally important to determine which cable will be used to transfer data to the server – copper (“twisted pair”) or fiber optic?

If you plan to use a twisted pair cable, then the problem can be solved in two ways:

In fact, these two switches are analogs (they have 4 PoE ports for connecting cameras and 1 port for transmitting traffic further over the network, for example, to a server).

To choose the right switch, you need to answer one fundamental question:
