As technology evolves, so does the quantity and variety of components that make up an effective telecommunications network. The network switch is one component that will be important to the seamless running of any network. A normal network switch or a POE powered switch are the two major types of switches available.
Gulfstream’s POE switches help you make an educated and informed decision that best meets your device's needs.
When a gadget connects to a network, it traditionally requires two inputs: a power wire and a network cable. PoE (Power over Ethernet) is a technology that allows an Ethernet cable to deliver power.
PoE is beneficial to devices and networks that demand power while still transmitting data. As businesses take advantage of the Internet of Things, the number of devices that can be managed remotely and require data is growing at an exponential rate (IoT). By 2025, the number of IoT devices connected globally is estimated to reach 75 billion!
The value of PoE technology in most networking infrastructures will only grow as the number of network-connected devices grows.
PoE reduces the need for additional power lines to reach devices, saving money on power cables, outlets, and infrastructure equipment. Ethernet cables are less expensive and are frequently put in structures. Remote installation, if not already done, is less expensive than fibre because no electrician is necessary.
Devices that are powered by PoE can be easily transported to locations where there are no power outlets. This enables gadgets to be placed in difficult-to-reach areas or in locations that are not close to a power supply. Security cameras are an example of this, as power outlets are rarely available above ceilings.
A PoE switch can detect power usage by PoE-enabled devices and supply only the quantity of power required. This capacity to allocate electricity reduces power waste and saves money for enterprises.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is exploding. PoE switches ensure that your network infrastructure can accommodate the growing number of devices that are optimised to use this technology.
