Reliable & Uninterrupted connectivity is central for businesses to function smoothly, and this is where network switch plays a crucial role. Power over Ethernet (PoE) allows network switches to transmit both power and data through an ethernet cable to devices such as Wireless Access Points, IP Cameras, VoIP Phones, Digital Signboards, etc. Also, with PoE Switch there is no need for power outlets, which means the businesses can easily eliminate the downtime and power interruptions.
PoE Technology consist of PSE and PD. PSE is Power Sourcing Equipment like PoE Switches and PD is Powered Devices like IP cameras. PoE IEEE industry standards mainly consists of PoE (802.3af), PoE+ (803.3at) and PoE++ (802.3bt) which will deliver up to 15.4W, 30W and 100W power to PD devices respectively. Both PoE and PoE+ switches are capable of supplying power up to a maximum 100m distance over a CAT5e or CAT6 cable.
D-Link’s specific long range PoE switches support maximum 500-meter distance to power on PD devices like IP Camera with limited bandwidth.
Additionally, D-Link long range unmanaged PoE switches comes with industry intelligence (with DIP switch settings) to set the QoS, PoE ON/OFF, Traffic Segmentation, Ext mode. This provides additional control over the PD devices installed in longs distance.
Overall Benefits of a PoE Switch:
- Reduce Points of failures due to Power Adaptors used to power on CCTV
- Lower Infrastructure Costs
- Deployment Flexibility
- Centralized Control
- Simplified Installation as it uses existing network infrastructures for rapid deployment
D-Link PoE switches comes with 4,6,8,24 and 48 ports, with PoE budget ranging from 60W to 740W. D-Link PoE switches also support redundant power supply to provide uninterrupted power in case one power supply fail. Going advance, D-Link PoE also support Persistent PoE which will steadily supply Power to PD devices in case switch gets reboot.
Regardless of the size of business or network requirement, D-Link has an extensive line-up of PoE Switching Solution. Our PoE switches are designed to support Redundant, Reliable, and powerful Network.
