What is PoE -
Power-over-Ethernet?

Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) allows to provide both power and network connectivity to PoE devices (referred to as PD's) across a single Ethernet cable. Powered Devices (PD's) include Wireless Access Points, IP cameras, VoIP phones, PoE LED lighting, and other PD switches, among other things. These devices are powered and connected through a PoE Switch.

There are 2 existing PoE standards

Type 1

PoE (802.3af)

The original PoE standard provides 15.4W of power to the Ethernet port to be sent = 12.95W of delivered power at 100M distance from the switch.

Type 2

PoE+(802.3at)

PoE+ effectively doubles the PoE power to the device by providing 30W of power to the Ethernet port to be sent = 25.5W of delivered power at 100M distance from the switch.

New PoE standard in development - 802.3bt

The next PoE standard, 802.3bt, will bring maximum PoE power to about 90 W.

One of the key target markets for 802.3bt “smart” buildings and IoT, as it incorporates a significant portion of the devices that can be PoE-powered. It will be important in these buildings, which will incorporate hundreds of sensors and all must be monitored and controlled from a single management system.

Benefits of
Deploying PoE

image description

LOWER INFRASTRUCTURE AND INSTALLATION COSTS

Fewer, separate power adapters are needed and only one cable run is required rather than two.

image description

CENTRALISED CONTROL

Manage power to devices from a centralised switch. Power down/up devices as required for energy and cost savings.

image description

NO NEED FOR ELECTRICIANS

Uses existing IT networking infrastructure.

image description

EXTENDS WIRED AND WIRELESS NETWORK REACH

Not limited to fixed power outlet placements.

image description

OVERCOMES HARD TO WIRE ENVIRONMENTS

Including old or ‘protected’ buildings.

image description

RELIABILITY

Redundant Power Supply (RPS) backup options helps keep devices running even in the event of a power outage. Important for business critical services, such as IP Telephony based Call Centres.

Top 3 Applications for PoE

PoE makes installing or expanding a network much simpler and cheaper in buildings where it is too expensive or inconvenient to install new power lines. Using PoE lets you mount devices in places where it would be impractical to install power, such as drop ceilings.

The NETGEAR Advantage

  • Largest PoE Switch portfolio of the market
  • 2 to 96 ports Gigabit PoE/PoE+
  • 96 ports 10-Gigabit/Multi-gigabit with M4300-96X
  • PoE budgets ranging from 19W to 1440W and everything in between
  • From Unmanaged PoE switches to Fully Managed
  • Advanced per port PoE controls (including power allocation override), PoE scheduling, and remote enable/disable/power cycle with NETGEAR Insight

The NETGEAR Innovation

UPGRADABLE PoE BUDGET
(GS108LP AND GS116LP MODELS)

The real benefit for the customer is that if you’re not sure how much PoE power you’ll need and have a limited budget, you can purchase the “LP” version of the switch, and then, as your PoE needs grow, you can later upgrade the power adapter to get more PoE budget, as opposed to traditional switches, where you would need to completely replace the entire switch to get more power, costing you more in the end.
