On the off chance any of the VCF has access:

  * Juniper EX2200-C, not the base EX2200.
  * Cisco 2960X or 2960XR   There is a 24 port fanless / PoE versions of
    both.   Try and grab the version model with SFP slots for 10GB uplinks
  * It's the industrial Cisco 3010 that can't be fanless and PoE
