Enterprises Can't Afford To Overlook New Demand For Higher-Powered Switches

Share Article

Planetech USA has released the latest in high-powered switch technology to satisfy the growing demand for the higher-powered, 802.3at PoE plus standard.

Planetech USA has recently added four new Gigabit Ethernet solutions that support applications that demand higher power and help network administrators deploy a flexible network connection in enterprise and extreme industrial environments.

Planetech USA GS-4210-24P(L)4C is a new generation of managed Gigabit PoE+ Switches with Advanced L2/L4 switching and security. The GS-4210-24P4C and GS-4210-24PL4C have a total power budget of up to 220 watts and 440 watts, respectively. The units provide 24 10/100/1000BASE-T ports featuring 802.3at PoE+ ports with a power capability of 30 watts each and 4 additional Gigabit TP/SFP combo ports. The units also provide a built-in L2/L4 Gigabit switching engine along with IPv6/IPv4 dual stack management.

To alleviate the complexity caused by IPv4 address exhaustion, IPv6 will utilize a 128-bit address that will give connections their own unique IP address, greatly improving peer to peer connections and giving devices the ability to auto-configure themselves as opposed to relying on DHCP protocols.

Planetech USA has also released a new Gigabit Ethernet Extender, the IPOE-E174 1-Port 60W Ultra POE to 4-Port 802.3af/at Gigabit POE Extender, capable of operating in industrial environments and temperatures ranging from -40 to 75 C. The unit is especially designed for point to multipoint PoE applications. The IPOE-E174 can obtain a maximum of 50-watts distributed among 4 PoE ports from its 60-watt ultra PoE input port. Gigabit Ethernet Data transmission over a standard CAT 5/5e/6 UTP cable can be extended an additional 100 meters for a total of up to 200 meters.

Planetech USA now offers the WGS-804HP, an 8-Port 10/100/1000T Wall Mounted Gigabit Ethernet Switch with 4 PoE+ ports. Planet’s WGS-804HP features an innovative, wall-mounted industrial 8-port Gigabit Ethernet Switch with 4 802.3af/802.3at Power over Ethernet ports. It comes enclosed in a metal IP30 encasement. The device features a total PoE budget of 120 watts distributed among 4 PoE ports, ultra networking speed, and operates in temperatures ranging from -10 to 60 degrees C. The wall-mounted industrial switch is ideal for network administrators that do not need to install the switch utilizing a din rail.

“Wireless Access Point manufacturers continue to release devices that draw more power to broadcast stronger wireless signals,” comments Joe Williams, director of sales at Planetech USA. “These new switches developed by Planet have the capability of powering any access point on the market today.”

Planetech USA’s new range of products will help network administrators deploy flexible networking connections that support a variety of applications such as IP surveillance and Wireless APs in enterprise and industrial environments. The devices are flexible enough to accept 802.3af/at specifications and a variety of other applications.
