Habitech  Networking  UPoE 

[#pageName]

The first Ultra PoE products are landing in the UK. The Planet range of UPoE (aka 802.3bt) network infrastructure solutions can deliver up to 60W per port, doubling the power available from the PoE+ (802.at) standard. Distribution is via Habitech.

The UPoE standard is designed to power a range of IoT devices which greater power, such as 802.11ac wireless access points, large PTZ surveillance cameras, network routers, access control and even PoE lighting. With 802.3bt Ultra PoE, installers can create PoE lighting solutions that surpass 802.3at’s 30 watt limitation. 

Increasing network power demands have led the IEEE to progressively upgrade PoE standards, moving from the IEEE 802.3af spec for 15.4 W of DC power to the IEEE 802.3at (PoE+) standard, which provides up to 25.5 W. The new 802.3bt standard uses all four conductor pairs to deliver as much as 60W per port, over twice the power of existing high-power PoE switches. By injecting power into all four pairs, cable losses can be reduced by 50 per cent , if the current remains the same).

Habitech’s Planet UPoE range includes 802.3bt switches, extenders and injector hubs, which enable PoE in networks that don’t have a PoE-capable switch. There are 16 and 24 port UPoE switches: the GS-4210-16UP4C and GS-4210-24UP4C with 400W and 600W power provision and intelligent diagnostics for copper, fibre, PD alive check and PoE scheduling; an Ultra PoE to 4-Port PoE+ Gigabit Switch, IPOE-E174, which distributes power to four PoE+ devices, and a range of accessories including an Ultra PoE splitter, the POE-171S, and the POE-172, a single-port Gigabit Ultra PoE injector.

The Planet UPoE range joins Habitech’s expanding line-up of high performance wired and wireless infrastructure products, including Draytek routers, Ruckus Wave2 Wi-Fi APs, Aten’s new CI-optimised power switching and monitoring, Cleerline fibre and state-of-the-art SCP CAT copper.
