A very quiet switch required similar to 3750X

Hi All,

We have 1 x 3750X 48 ports with dual PS installed in our Recording Studio  and recently users are complaining that it is quite noisy!!!

We checked the hardware and found nothing wrong with it:

Switch Ports Model SW Version SW Image
------ ----- ----- ---------- ----------
* 1 54 WS-C3750X-48P 12.2(55)SE9 C3750E-UNIVERSALK9-M


Configuration register is 0xF

SOH-LAS-RBSAUDIO#sh env all
FAN 1 is OK
FAN 2 is OK
FAN PS-1 is OK
FAN PS-2 is OK
TEMPERATURE is OK
Temperature Value: 30 Degree Celsius
Temperature State: GREEN
Yellow Threshold : 46 Degree Celsius
Red Threshold : 60 Degree Celsius
SW PID Serial# Status Sys Pwr PoE Pwr Watts
-- ------------------ ---------- --------------- ------- ------- -----
1A C3KX-PWR-715WAC DCB1801A1SU OK Good Good 715/0
1B C3KX-PWR-715WAC DTN1628K0MQ OK Good Good 715/0

SW Status RPS Name RPS Serial# RPS Port#
-- ------------- ---------------- ----------- ---------
1 Not Present <>

 

It could be the model of the switch/getting old etc  - could someone recommend a similar model switch but maybe "more quieter" in a recording studio environment please.

Much appreciated.

Thanks

Re: A very quiet switch required similar to 3750X

I don't recall (?) any of the 2960 series being fanless, and it's generally the fans that make almost all the noise.

Prabath suggestion might be about the best you can do within the Cisco line up as its features should be similar to your 3750X. However, if you only are using few features, something in Cisco's SMB line might be fanless too.

The alternative is using some kind of "sound box" around your existing 3750 to contain its noise, but you also need to still provide for cooling air flow.

There is this  fanless compact series switches.We have few and pretty quiet compared to the other enterprise-grade ones. They still make a very light inverter noise if you stand close to it. However, they may or may not meet your port density and POE requirement.

What about the 2960 ? - not sure if they are still in production.

We have to go the hard way by relocate the switch to a different room and run new cablings.
Thank you all for your help.
