Briefly, the POE switch is a kind of network switch with a built-in injection of Power over Ethernet. First of all, let’s get to start with the switch. A switch is a telecommunication device used in a wired network to be connected with other devices through Ethernet cables. In this way, the switch creates a path for all connected devices to be able to talk with each other. In wireless-based networks, switches are not used because they can communicate directly with each other. Except above basic functions, smart POE switches can deliver network power to a range of devices except for basic data transmission. Basically speaking, Power over Ethernet (POE) is a technology that lets network cables carry electrical power.H3B Power Over Ethernet solution complies with the IEEE Power over Ethernet standards.
H3B power-over-Ethernet (PoE) solution is designed to supply both power supply and data transmission across a single CAT-5/6 Ethernet cable to ending equipment such as IP cameras, VoIP phones, wireless access points, etc. With the help of these Plug-and-Play switches, without any configuration, customers can easily set up and expand the network connection to different network devices. With POE powered network switch, it also helps to save the trouble and cost to install extra power sockets for the ending equipment.
Long reach POE solution brings lots of advantages to installation, here are some highlights.
Time and money-saving. The network cables of the Ethernet POE injector does not require any special wiring from qualified electricians. Also, there is no need to install any extra power sockets for the connected devices. In this way, it helps to reduce lots of time and expenses.
Flexibility. Without the need to follow certain electrical outlets, a POE network switch for IP cameras makes your project easier. End devices such as IP cameras and wires access points can be installed at the places needed the most. And they can also be relocated easily; no need to worry about any wiring or installation limitations.
Safety. H3B POE solutions are designed with intelligent detection before the power supply. They are specially designed to protect the ending devices from burning.
Reliability. The POE power comes from universally compatible sources through the Ethernet cables, rather than some wall-mounted sockets with different power collection standards.
Scalability. POE injector switch available with stable power supply from the network spares the work and worry of installation and distribution, which is just simple and effective for all parts.
The HS POE series switches provide convenient and affordable network connectivity for many applications. With considerate design and reliable performance, POE powered network switch is easy to use and convenient to maintain.
POE has a wide range of applications, here are 3 mainly applied devices.
VoIP phones. As the original POE application, it's like the old analogue systems.
IP cameras. POE is now commonly used on all kinds of networked surveillance cameras. It's very fast to finish deployment without worrying about the power problem, and if need to be repositioned it can also be achieved easily.
Wireless access points – All kinds of Wifi and Bluetooth APs and RFID readers in the market are commonly designed PoE-compatible.
