1 - AP network (need suggestion for cost effective gig-e switch)

Does anyone have any suggestions?
Juniper EX3200. L2/L3 line rate GigE, partial or full PoE options
available. Fiber uplink options. 24T version w/8 ports of PoE. The
last 4 copper ports are shared with 1 Gig uplink module ports (but
they aren't shared if you use 10 GigE uplink modules).
Well just make sure the current Mikrotik's in place don't have gig-e
ports as the newer Mikrotik's do. In that case converting over to a
routing environment should be as simple as some software changes in the
Mikrotik's. As for fiber you'd need some media converters. We run a
Mikrotik's in our network using OSPF with a bunch of Cisco's and
Riverstone routers without any problems.
