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

2 to 4 - back haul ports

fiber instead of copper)

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.
