High-power multiport PoE midspans based on pre-standard IEEE 802.3at specifications have been launched by Microsemi Corp. Designated PD-7000G, the additions to Microsemi's PowerDsine product portfolio allow double the power currently available within the existing IEEE 802.3af PoE standards, enabling broad WiMAX, PTZ cameras, and 802.11n access point and thin client network applications.

The PD-7000G Midspan Family includes 6-, 12- and 24port versions, complementing Microsemi's 30W single-port high power PD-7001G PowerDsine unit targeting networks of low-density IP devices.

The PD-7000G multiport units include PowerDsine's exclusive PowerView Pro management option that allows simple and efficient monitoring and control of network devices. This secure SNMPv3 application enables remote power-off/power-on, unit scheduling, UPS power monitoring and web-based monitoring.

Product Availability
Production units of the PD-7000G multi-port series will be available in March 2008, with prototypes and demo units available on order in February. Single-port PD-7001G high power midspans are available in production quantities now.
