4,8,16,24 Port-PoE-Switch-AE-Connect

Power over Ethernet (PoE) is a technology developed for the purpose of passing electric power along with data on twisted pair ethernet cabling. Many devices such as Wireless Access Points (WAPs), Internet Protocol (IP) cameras, and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phones require a single cable that can provide both data connection and electrical power.

A PoE switch saves both time and money by delivering data and power over the same ethernet cable for the local area networks (LANs). The IEEE 802.3af standard defined PoE technology in 2003. The PoE switch is a major application of PoE technology which has made a remarkable contribution to simultaneous data and power supply over a single ethernet cable. The rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) has led to the development of projects such as smart cities, intelligent homes, etc. The PoE switch has vast growth potential and finding one that suits the work aspirations is a must as well as a difficult job. Making it simple to get robust PoE switches, AE Connect provides managed and unmanaged PoE+ Switches at an affordable price range.

Many times, you need to position the network set up in areas where a power outlet is not available. PoE switches can supply both power and data in such situations using ethernet cables. Devices such as Internet Protocol (IP) cameras require fast internet and a power outlet to perform at high resolution. We manufacture PoE switches that can cater to the needs of devices such as IP cameras.

The Internet has become a basic necessity in the current hour and we need more things such as wireless access points. Wi-Fi services are coming up in more and more places such as airports, railway stations, universities, marketplaces, etc. The need of the hour is the PoE switch which can provide data and power to the wireless access points. Large corporates use many VoIP phones that require internet connection and power. A networking product PoE switch serves corporates by providing data and power simultaneously to VoIP phones over ethernet cables.

Different Types Of PoE Switch: Unmanaged PoE+ Switch & Managed PoE+ Switch

Unmanaged PoE+ Switch

Advantages Of PoE+ Switch


PoE Switches Are Durable

PoE Switch is long-lasting in nature. It is known to resist extreme temperatures compared to conventional industrial ethernet switches. Industrial PoE switches paint quality in temperature-monitored surroundings without exposure to moisture. Commercial PoE switches are capable of performing in intense temperatures from about -40 degrees to 75 degrees. Long-lasting PoE switches are designed to face up to the factors and might resist harsh weather.


Higher Data Speed

PoE technology has been credited with improved data speed. A PoE switch can deliver data at 1Gbps using Cat5 and Cat6 cables. The all-new IEEE 802.3bz standard provides speeds of 2.5Gbps to 5Gbps over 100 metres with an immediate view toward 10 Gbps. The maximum requirement for live streaming is 400Mbps. You can easily manage streaming videos and perform other functions such as checking emails.

PoE eliminates the requirement for tethered electrical outlets which means devices such as security IP cameras and wireless access points can be located according to their needs and repositioned with ease. You can add devices in remote or awkward locations with the help of PoE Switch. A PoE switch acts as a safer alternative as it protects network equipment from electrical overload, under-powering, or incorrect installation.
