Simplified Network Deployment in Remote Areas
without Power Outlets

What is PoE?

Power over Ethernet (PoE) allows network switches to transmit both power and data through an Ethernet cable at the same time.

Why Should I Use PoE Devices?

Without PoE, you have to make a choice between running a power cable to the area where you want to deploy a network device or deploying network devices based on where existing power outlets are available. PoE provides greater flexibility and ensures that you will never have to compromise when deploying network devices.
PoE is an IEEE standard for simultaneously transmitting data and low-voltage power throughout a network using a single Ethernet cable. PoE dramatically simplifies the process of installing APs, IP cameras, IP phones, and other PoE enabled devices in hard-to-reach, outdoor, and remote areas.

Benefits of Using PoE?

  • Lower Infrastructure Costs

    A single cable supports both data and power transmission. PoE solutions also require fewer power adapters.

  • Enhanced Deployment Flexibility

    Freedom from fixed power outlets provides more placement options and allows for deployment in complex environments.

  • Centralized

    A centralized switch can manage power allocation to all devices.

  • Simplified Installation

    Use existing network infrastructures for rapid deployment, without the need for an electrician.

PoE and PoE+

PoE devices utilize the original PoE standard, IEEE 802.3af, which provides up to 15.4W of DC power to each device. The latest standard, IEEE 802.3at, is known as PoE+ and provides up to 30W of power to each device.

Typical Applications and Power Guide

IP Phones (PoE supported) Wireless Access Points (PoE supported) IP Camera (PoE supported)

The following guidelines are meant to provide general estimates for power consumption. Actual power requirements vary and should be confirmed for each model when determining your PoE budget requirements.

IP Phone: 3- 7W Access Point: 8W for a/g radios and upwards of 20W for n radios IP Camera: 7- 10W PZT Camera: 15 -25+ W

PoE Switches from TP-LINK

TP-LINK’s PoE Switches are specifically designed to utilize either PoE (802.3af) or PoE+ (802.3at) in order to supply power to network devices. Managed and unmanaged PoE switches are available, allowing you to transmit electrical power and data via a single cable. This makes it easier than ever to expand your network into areas where power sockets are not accessible.
