The PoE+ switch is an essential active networking device in any Ethernet infrastructure using power transmission through the structural cabling. RSFE-8P-2GE-120 is dedicated to all kinds of installations: home, business, low-voltage, surveillance, IP, VoIP, cable TV networks, and in a particular product can be used in alarm, fire, or access control system.
Apart from the switch's primary function, i.e., supporting Ethernet frame transfer between ports, the device also provides a power supply for each appliance in PoE/PoE+ standard – 802.3af and at. This means that the switch can supply the devices with a total of up to 120 W. All of this is combined with data transmission at the same time.
As a result, such a solution saves resources, space, and time to install a separate electrical and network infrastructure. This is especially important if the network is dispersed and its end-devices do not have direct access to the power source, in particular, when they are mounted outside.
The switch is fitted with a total of 10 RJ-45 ports, including 8 PoE+ (Fast Ethernet) and 2 Uplink (Gigabit Ethernet) ports. The well-thought-out design and attention to details and quality of components enable the user to achieve up to 120 W of real power for the end-devices.
The 2 remaining (Uplink) ports are dedicated to transferring data traffic between 8 PoE+ ports and external devices. In the case of surveillance/control systems, this is particularly useful as it allows the user to simultaneously play the recording(s) from the IP cameras on the NVR and share it further, e.g., in the local network or on the Internet.
