FS S3410-48TS-P 48-Port PoE+ Switch Review


FS S3410-48TS-P PoE+ Switch Power Consumption and PoE+ Feature

Something that we have started to do is to validate PoE/PoE+ status on switches that we review. As we can see, the Fluke tool sees this as a 25.5W Class 4 device or a PoE+ device.

We confirmed that it booted the PoE+ WiFi 6 APs we had in the lab and some PoE cameras. We only got this up to 505W of load before we ran out of ports/ devices before we hit the 740W PoE+ budget.

In terms of power consumption, we saw around 43.8W at idle and not much more under load once the switch booted. This switch is designed so that the power is used by connected PoE+ devices rather than the switch itself.

In terms of noise, this is far from silent, even without devices connected. Once the PSUs start seeing more than 400W or so of load, they spin up more. This is a data closet device, not a device to put in an open area with customers or employees.

Final Words

Sometimes at the end of our reviews, we have really insightful summaries. Overall, the S3410-48TS-P was about what we would expect in this class of L2+ switch. We have a package that generally makes sense, especially if one can get past features like the expansion slots that we cannot find any documented expansion modules for.

There are a few things that we would change, such as we would have liked to have seen a dedicated management port since that is a more modern design. We also would have liked to see smaller changes, like a different default DNS provider used.

This space is also really interesting because we see our reviews of PoE switches changing over time. There are still so many devices out there that this 1GbE/ PoE+ works well with. At the same time, the next generation of APs is using 2.5GbE and PoE++. Our sense is that the market for this 1GbE/ PoE+ switch is going to be huge for the foreseeable future, so switches like this S3410-48TS-P fill a clear need.

Overall, the switch worked as expected and felt fairly standard for a device in this class. There are certain applications where one simply needs 48x PoE+ ports with 10GbE uplinks, and this switch fills that space.


  1. Aren’t those plain S-ATA power & data connectors in front of those expansion cages? Also, CLI being short for ‘command line interface’, wouldn’t it be more apt to just talk about a web UI for the web interface? I see nothing command line in those screenshots :-).

  2. You may want to consider support and warranty when evaluating these FS switches. They only have a 30 day replacement warranty. After that you have to ship it back to their US facility and then they send it back to China for repair. The whole process takes several weeks and unless you have a cold spare handy and backup configs, you are kinda hosed. I’m not against FS switches, just want people to be aware that in pretty much any production environment they will probably need to buy spares, which then means they aren’t quite inexpensive as they first appear.

  3. I’d have loved to see mention/comparison between this and mikrotik’s CRS354-48P-4S2QRM which trades the expansion and modular power supplies for a higher bandwith and lower price point(alongside routerOS if that’s something you’re familiar with)
