Phihong Multiport Midspans Now Compatible with Gigabit Systems
Lower upgrade costs for high-speed data transmission....
FREMONT, Calif. (May 9, 2005) - Phihong, the global leader in low cost power supplies, now offers a multiport midspan power injector for Power-over-Ethernet applications that can be used with Gigabit systems. Unlike other midspans on the market, the Phihong Midspans, are not limited to working only on 10baseT or 100baseT systems.
"Our customers realized that Power-over-Ethernet was a smart solution to their networking needs, but the midspans on the market were not designed for high-speed applications such as broadband wireless," said Keith Hopwood, Vice President of Marketing for Phihong USA. "We designed our low-cost injectors so that they can be applied to any network without compromising the data rate. Now IT professionals can take our Midspan and get PoE on any network without having to check compatibility."
Available in 1, 8, 16 and 24 port versions, Phihong's high-speed Midspans offer full 15.4W per port at a cost that is 40 percent lower than competitor solutions.
PoE allows both power and data to be carried over an Ethernet cable. A midspan is used to implement PoE into an existing network where power can be inserted on the spare pair.
The enterprise midspan provides 1 to 24 ports to upgrade an existing architecture with total output power up to 370W. Offering 15.4W per port, the midspan will full power to all ports so there is no need for calculating which devices to connect. Each midspan comes with software to control and monitor each port along with full power management capability for load shedding in back-up power conditions.
Pricing for the 24-port Midspans start at $295 in OEM quantities.
