PoGE (Power over Gigabit Ethernet)

Company Name: 
PoGE (Power over Gigabit Ethernet)

The Xirrus XP Power over Gigabit Ethernet (PoGE) system provides a simple, low cost means to remotely power Xirrus Arrays. The PoGE system delivers DC power in-line with the Array's Gigabit Ethernet data connection. The injector, which typically resides in the wiring closet, sits between the switch and the Array and injects power on the Ethernet cable allowing data and power to be delivered over a single line. The systems can provide up to 95W of 48VDC power over up to 100m of Category 5e or 6 cable.

 

Overview  

  • Delivers DC power in-line with the Array's Gigabit Ethernet connection
  • Power Arrays remotely up to 100m over Category 5e or 6 cable
  • SNMP/Web manageable versions available

Value Delivered  

  • Provides simple, low cost means to remotely power Xirrus Arrays
  • Run a single cable for Data and Power
  • Lowers installation and maintenance cost

 

Key Features  

  • Up to 95W delivered power per connection
  • Fully compliant with IEEE 802.3af for detection, disconnect, and voltage control
  • Power Arrays remotely up to 100m over Category 5e or 6 cable
  • Compatible with 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet data connections
  • Built-in over current, over voltage, and short circuit protection
  • Diagnostic LEDs

Remotely Manageable  

Manageable versions of the PoGE injectors are available. Via the Xirrus Management System (using SNMP) or a web-based interface, the injectors can be remotely powered on and powered off giving IT administrators the following benefits: 

  • The Arrays can be powered off at night when they are not being used to conserve energy (cut energy cost 30% to 60%)
  • If the Arrays are not reachable via IP connectivity and need to be reset, the injectors can be turned off/on to reboot the Arrays
