Wouldn’t it be nice when you are installing an Ethernet switch in a new industrial or outdoor environment just to hook up the network cables, and not mess with power connections and cables? You can! Antaira Technologies offers managed Ethernet switches featuring Power Over Ethernet (PoE) technology. This technology eliminates the need for an independent power source for your Ethernet switches because the electrical power is carried inside the network cable.
Antiara managed Ethernet PoE switches deliver lower capital costs because of the improved price-performance ratio of PoE technology combined with essential management features. Down-times are minimized because the complete network infrastructure is visible. Individual port security improves the security of the entire network. And simplified operations along with reduced power consumption helps keep operational costs down.
Antaira managed Ethernet switches enable network managers to remotely access a wide range of capabilities to configure, manage, and monitor a Local Area Network. Antaira offers a full line of industrial managed switches that boast a variety of port-counts, mounting, fiber and PoE options.
Ease of Use
PoE technology eliminates the time, expense, headaches, and hassles of installing separate power cables, which usually requires the services of an electrician to fit the connections. With Antaira PoE switches, you are no longer bound by power cables and outlets. You can install your equipment wherever your network cables take you. This makes it much easier to install in remote, hard-to-reach locations network devices such as:
PoE is designed with network safety in mind, and protects devices on the network from dirty power input, including the voltage spikes and current surges common at industrial sites. In addition, Antaira’s industrial managed PoE switches offer a variety of PoE features, including PoE Keep Alive (keeps a cache of connections “alive” for quick reuse), scheduled power cycles, power-budgeting, and port settings.
Network Electrical Standards
Antaira managed PoE switches are available in two PoE standards:
PoE Port Speeds
There are two PoE port speeds offered in the Antaira managed PoE switches:
Antaira managed PoE Ethernet switches come in a variety of port configurations and port speeds. For example, Antaira’s LMP-0800G-24-T is an managed Ethernet switch offering 8 Gigabit PoE+ ports (30 W/Port). The LMP-1204G-SFP has 12 ports -- 8 Gigabit PoE+ ports and 4 SFP Slots.
Antaira managed PoE Ethernet switches also feature Layer 2 network management plus network redundancy support required in critical industrial communication settings. With Layer 2 management, a managed switch may be configured for port mirroring, VLAN tagging, 8K MAC address table, LACP, QoS and a whole lot more.
Layer 2 Capabilities
The Layer 2 capabilities of the Antaira managed PoE Ethernet switches include:
Antaira managed PoE Ethernet switches offer two wide operating temperature models. Seletct from the standard temperature range of -10° to 70° C or an extended temperature range of -40° to 75° C.
All Antaira switches come with a 5-year warranty.
