The 30W one-port midspan from Phihong USA is now being implemented into high-power applications that implement IEEEs 802.11N standard. Designated the POE30U Series, the midspan is designed to power wireless and WiMAX access points that require up to 24 watts of power.
IEEE 802.11N, the new broadband wireless standard, has driven up access point power requirements beyond current IEEE802.3af standards.
802.11N access points with A/B/G support and new WiMAX access points are typically using up to 24 watts of power, said Keith Hopwood, vice president of marketing for Phihong USA. By using our high power midspan, there is no need for installing new local AC power outlets and special wiring, eliminating the cost and time delays of calling an electrician.
In addition to wireless and WiMAX access points, applications for the POE30U midspans include IP telephones with streaming video and high quality Pan Tilt Zoom. The 30W midspan features diagnostic LEDs and the same safety and protection systems as with the IEEE 802.3af standard, including detection, disconnect and overload control. The device is also Gigabit-compatible.
