USRP2 on switch?

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Hi,

that MIGHT be a stupid question, so please forgive me if it is :).

Is it possible/adviseable to connect an USRP2 to the PC via a (GigaBit -
of course) network switch? Or might that create problems / latencies
which would unreasonably impact the function? I’m talking about a
high-quality manageable switch with a reasonably well dimensioned
backplane, not some SOHO-stuff.

it seems every usrp2 must have a ethernet number and a MAC address, so I
think the connecting with switch might not work…?

I have an N210 (UHD) hooked to a switch. It works just fine. I think
the reason it is recommended to hook it directly to the computer doing
the processing is that a switch will have a limit as to how much data
can go through it at any time. So you probably shouldn’t have 10 USRPs
hooked to the same switch even if you also have 10 different machines
on that switch doing the processing.
