Any plans to expand the switch lineup? I'm looking for a business/enterprise/industrial class managed 16-port full GbE non-POE switch with:
- (optional/bonus: 2 SFP+)
I think the ToughSwitch TS-16-CARRIER comes close, but I'd rather not have PoE on this particular switch. I would prefer to stay in the UBNT universe (UniFi controller, in particular), but I'm open to consider other options.

TS-16 carrier are just 2 TS-8 PRO on the same case, you have to uplink both switches, so you start over loosing 2 ports. And they also do not have SFPs, let alone SFP+.
The UBNT switch that most closely matches what you want is indeed the edgeswitch lite.

Verses the Lites? The PoE switches draw too much power to be DC powered for redundancy (or direct DC supply) like the Lites. The Lites also cost less. And generate less heat. And are physically smaller. If you don't need PoE, they are a better solution all around.
