Phihong has developed a 95W-per-port mid-span suitable for applications such as wireless access points, computer stations, kiosks, LCD displays, magnetic locks and emergency lighting.

Designated the POE240U-2MPN, the two-port, gigabit-compatible mid-span device is Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) capable and provides 95W of full power per port.

Keith Hopwood, vice-president of marketing at Phihong, said: ‘This mega-power PoE mid-span is based on the detection, disconnect and voltage control specified for IEEE802.3af and “at” devices.

‘The device is a cost- and time-saving solution in the implementation of wireless access points and security systems because it replaces hard-wiring methods while offering superior power performance,’ he added.

As with all of Phihong’s mid-spans, the POE240U-2MPN does not require any power management.

It provides full power to both ports simultaneously, so there is no need to calculate and manage device priorities.

The SNMP protocol enables network administrators to manage and monitor networks and to remotely diagnose and solve any network problems.

SNMP-capable mid-spans give IT managers the ability to remotely turn phones, access points and other devices on and off, allowing customers to save energy and reduce expenses.

The company’s SNMP-capable devices are also enabled with the capability to send traps when a device overloads or shuts down, allowing manufacturers to receive alarms, even when in remote locations.

SNMP capability is further enhanced by Phihong’s new power-over-Ethernet (PoE) graphical user interface (GUI) software, which provides a graphical interface to both locally and remotely perform tasks, including enabling and disabling individual ports, managing connection types and saving set parameters to a flash drive, as well as providing port descriptions and parametric information.

For remote access, Phihong provides http:// support, accessible via most browsers and operating systems, enabling users to log in to the mid-span GUI software by entering their mid-spans’ IP addresses into their browsers.

Remote access via Phihong’s http:// support provides users with the same level of security that they receive when locally accessing the GUI software.
