Etailer punts steamy lace-up 24-port switch

Obviously, the form factor is a bit bigger than a standard 19-inch rack, but if you're willing to go to the extra trouble of mounting this particular model, you'll find it's hot-pluggable and offers switch binding, cut-through routing and bottleneck detection. Brocade can, if you're interested, provide "trial licenses for add-on capabilities", which sounds promising. ®
