Phihong 's 8-port POE125U midspan

Phihong USA Inc. has developed a low-cost, 8-port midspan that is simple network management protocol (SNMP)-capable for PoE implementation in SOHO environments.

The POE125U enables remote monitoring without the need for on-site personnel while lowering the cost of implementing PoE for single points of backup in SOHO environments as well as wireless access points and IP cameras for security applications.

Because it is fully compliant with the IEEE802.3af standard in detection, disconnect, and voltage control, the Gigabit-compatible 8-port POE125U midspan provides a cost-effective method for powering VoIP phone systems and multi-camera security systems. This midspan provides up to 15.4W of power per port, requires no power management and one UPS keeps phones and cameras working even when the power is cut.

Phihong midspans are designed for Gigabit systems to enable high power for 10/100/1000 Base-T networks. The POE125U midspan provides over-voltage, over-current, and short-circuit protection to prevent permanent damage after a shortage.

"PoE makes physical support easier and more affordable," said Keith Hopwood, VP of marketing for Phihong USA. "With Phihong 's PoE solutions designed specifically for SOHO applications, phones, access points and security cameras can be easily moved and added since they are working off existing data cables, saving a company time, hassle and money. The addition of SNMP capability allows for remote camera monitoring and reset without additional personnel, ideal for such an environment."
