The IFS 4-Port Fast Ethernet/PoE-af Mid-span Injector is a quick and easy solution that can be used when a network device does not provide the functionality as a power source equipment (PSE), such as a non-PoE switch, and yet several edge devices being deployed are PoE powered devices (PD). This module provides the ability to combine Ethernet data and PoE on four individual category cables for deployment of up to four PoE powered edge devices of up to 100m (328 ft.). This provides a costeffective and efficient power distribution cable management solution for a PoE-centric IP network.
The 100m (328 ft.) distance is based on the EIA-568 standard and is the maximum distance between two Ethernet devices. The IFS 4-Port Fast Ethernet/PoE-af Mid-Span Injector can be deployed at any location within the 100m (328ft.) cable run; however, typically this device would be installed closer to the non-PoE device. This device facilitates easier network planning by eliminating restrics of edge device placement near AC power outlets and reduces the need for AC wiring and installation costs while delivering higher reliability.
