How are SFP Modules Used with Industrial Network Switches?

In reviewing today’s industrial network switches, one of the features that stand out are built-in SFP slots accompanying the standard RJ45 ports. SFP is short for Small Form-factor Pluggable, and it’s been an industry workhorse for nearly two decades. As a standardized network interface, SFP technology enables switches with SFP module slots and ports to connect to network components, either optically or electrically, at distances up to 160km (99.4 miles).

Powering Up IP Surveillance Systems for Traffic Applications with PoE Switches

Transportation managers are adopting IP surveillance systems to improve their visibility into real-time traffic conditions. In doing this, traffic control centers have up-to-date, reliable video data that allow them to respond quickly to changes in road conditions, such as modifying signal policies or rerouting drivers to prevent congestion. IP surveillance systems must be deployed on a powerful network to ensure seamless video data transmission from multiple remote traffic cameras back to the control center.

Developing a PoE Power Budget for an Industrial Network

Article by Henry Martel, Field Application Engineer, Antaira Technologies What is a PoE budget? If you ask an accountant what a budget is, they’ll tell you it’s a spending plan based on how much money you earn versus what you spend over a certain period. In industrial networking circles, budgets exist, too. Except instead of […]

Is your Security System Future Proof? It can be with Vigitron PoE solutions

Camera, Access Control, and LED lighting devices are rapidly moving towards using IEEE 802.3bt as their PoE standard for high PoE applications. The IEEE 802.3bt includes 8 Classes of PoE up to 90W. During the time this standard was under development, some security products required more power than the existing standards of IEEE 802.3af (15.4W) and IEEE 802.3at (30W) could provide. This led to the use of none standard types of PoE, such as UPoE which was adopted by most manufacturers, as it was based on the existing IEEE 802.3at.

Antaira Persistent PoE Technology Supplies Uninterrupted Power to Devices Connected to Managed Switches

When deploying managed PoE switches in an industrial network, upgrading firmware is an inevitable action to enhance switch performance. However, upgrading typically requires devices powered by the switch’s PoE to be shutdown for up to 15 minutes or more. As a result, data from these Powered Devices (PDs) that businesses rely upon to make informed decisions cannot be captured. PoE-powered PDs at risk include IP cameras, sensors, PLCs, VoIP phones, PoE lighting, and non-PoE switches.
