Recommend me a PoE Switch

As part of my working from home deal, I'll be hooking up an IP phone, and need a PoE switch. For now, I can't think of any other purpose I'd have for the switch, so something small should be fine. Any recommendations?

Are you sure the phone needs PoE? It's quite common for them to have an aux power port.

If it truly requires PoE, you don't have to buy a whole switch, you can just buy a power injector, which takes an existing Ethernet wire and signal, and adds power on the unused wires. This is an example. There are many, many others.

Nifty, thanks. I'm not sure if this particular model has an aux power port, and now the phone is packed away so I won't be able to check until after I'm up there. Either way, it looks like that bit of the new office setup will cost less than I had expected.

The port for a power supply was somewhat hidden, but did exist, and the power supply was nice and cheap on ebay. Thanks again Malor.
