Allied Telesis Launches First Gigabit Ethernet Rate Media Converter with Power over Ethernet Capabilities

New offering - AT-PC2002/POE - Enables Effective Deployment of Bandwidth-Intensive End Points, such as Surveillance IP Cameras and VoIP Phones

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 7 -- Allied Telesis Inc., a global provider of secure IP/Ethernet switching solutions, and an industry leader in the deployment of IP Triple-Play networks, today announced the launch of its AT-PC2002/POE (Power over Ethernet) solution, the market's first Fast Gigabit Ethernet rate media Converter, with PoE and an internal power supply.

Initially developed for use in military networks, the AT-PC2002/POE is particularly appropriate for applications where the media converter needs to supply power to devices more than 100m away from the main network. The high data speeds enable the effective deployment of bandwidth intensive end points, such as CCTV (closed-circuit television), surveillance IP cameras, and VoIP (voice over Internet Protocol) phones.

The AT-PC2002/POE provides up to 15.4 watts of power (full power PoE), supports both speed and high-performance media conversion, and connects to both 100 and 1000Mbps SFP (small form-factor pluggable) devices via its copper port. It can be attached to a wall, desktop, or DIN rail.

"We have improved and upgraded the data speeds provided by our popular family of PoE media converters to offer our customers investment protection, and address their intensive bandwidth needs at remote network end points," said Philip Jopa, chief technology officer, Allied Telesis. "Today, large campuses are deploying complex applications, and our new AT-PC2002/POE offers both speed and performance so there is no need to compromise between the two."

The new AT-PC2002/POE is available now.
