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.
DITEK Networks is announcing the launch of a new line of Gigabit PoE+ network switches designed for industrial applications. The products in this new line, which includes both 4-port and 8-port models, are built with a rugged metal case and feature a fanless design that delivers a high PoE power budget. A welcome addition to the three other series of DITEK Networks PoE switches, this new line gives IT professionals and security integrators a new choice for cost-efficient, easy-to-install powered networks.
Omnitron introduced its next generation of OmniConverter 10Gigabit Ethernet switch products with Power over Ethernet (PoE) up to 100W. The new compact 10Gigabit 6 and 10-port Ethernet switches feature managed and unmanaged models with two (2) Small Form Pluggable (SFP) 10Gigabit fibre-optic uplink ports and four (4) or Eight (8) 10/100/1Gigabit copper Ethernet access ports with no PoE or with the IEEE 802.3af/at/bt standard-based 30, 60 or 100Watts PoE per port.
TRENDnet® is eager to announce the launch of two new long-range gigabit PoE+ switches, allowing users to network PoE devices for up to double the distance of the current standard. TRENDnet’s 5-Port Gigabit Long Range PoE+ Switch (TPE-LG50) and the 8-Port Gigabit Long Range PoE+ Switch (TPE-LG80) each feature a DIP switch to extend the PoE+ signal up to 656 ft. at up to 10Mbps. The new long-range PoE+ switches are ideal for use in access point, VoIP phone, and IP camera applications.
TRENDnet continues to expand its Web Smart PoE+ Switch line, adding two new gigabit PoE switches. Now available are the 28-Port Gigabit Web Smart PoE+ Switch, model TPE-5028WS, and the 52-Port Gigabit Web Smart PoE+ Switch, model TPE-5048WS. TRENDnet Web Smart PoE+ Switches are designed to provide easy deployment and flexible network integration. Advanced traffic management controls, troubleshooting, and SNMP monitoring make these switches powerful solutions for any SMB network.
