Multiport PoE Injector for Easy and Cost-Effective Installation of Wi-Fi 6 Access Points and Small Cell Nodes
The new flexible and cost-effective multiport Power over Ethernet (PoE) power sourcing equipment (PSE) injector from Microchip Technology allows users to deploy Wi-Fi 6 access points (APs) and 5G small cell access nodes without the need for AC power. The new device also named as midspan enables any multigigabit switch to support the high powering needs and data rates of the devices with no network configuration or downtime needed.
With the installation of the new Multigigabit PoE, users can cost-effectively inject power into the network. The new device simplifies the process of powering the Wi-Fi 6 devices and small cell equipment and supports the 10 gigabit-per-second data rates. The new PoE is in compliance with the IEEE’s 802.3bt PoE and 10GBASE-T specifications and is available in 6-, 12- and 24-port configurations.
With the ability to deliver up to 60 Watts (W) of output power per port, the midspan Multigigabit PoE supports Wi-Fi 6 devices’ high IEEE 802.11ax data rates. Microchip’s PD-9506-10GC, PD-9512-10GC, and PD-9524-10GC midspans are available now from authorized distributors around the world.
