Next Generation Power over Ethernet Deployment
The UPOE-800G is a high-density, rack-mountable managed Ultra PoE injector hub that can be remotely managed via its web interface. The unit provides 8 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet ports that support the Ultra PoE injector function and features a total PoE budget of 400 watts. Each PoE port can deliver up to 60-watts of power over standard networking cables (Cat.5/5e/6 Ethernet UTP cables) and simultaneously transmits power and data to connected powered devices (PDs). The UPOE-800G provides a simple and cost-effective Power over Ethernet (PoE) network solution ideal for small businesses and enterprises. Planet’s new Ultra PoE Managed Injector Hub series is a cost-effective Ultra PoE solution that helps existing network infrastructures upgrade to an Ultra Power over Ethernet network system without having to replace their existing Ethernet Switch.
Simple Ultra PoE Network Deployment
The UPOE-800G can be deployed between an Ethernet Switch and a Powered Device. There are a total of 16 RJ45 STP ports on the front panel of the UPOE-800G. The bottom 8 ports are “Data input” interfaces and the upper 8 ports are “PoE (Data and Power) output” interfaces.
The unit’s PoE functionality simultaneously transmits power and data via the UTP links to the connected PDs. With Data and Power delivered via the Ethernet cable, the UPOE-800G eliminates the need to install additional electrical conduits in location sites without power circuitry.
802.3bt Ready — 60 Watts of Power over 4-Pair UTP System
The UPOE-800G Ultra PoE solution relies on IEEE’s 802.3at/af PoE standard. Instead of delivering power over 2-pair twisted UTP – be it end-span (Pin 1, 2, 3 and 6) or mid-span (Pin 4, 5, 7 and 8), the unit can supply up to 60 watts of power by using all the four pairs of standard Cat.5e/6 Ethernet cabling. The UPOE-800G can deliver up to 60 watts per port to connected PoE powered devices. The unit can yield double the amount of power than the conventional 802.3at PoE standard and is satisfies the growing demand for higher-power consuming network PDs, such as:
- PoE PTZ speed dome
- Remote digital signage display
- AIO (all-in-one) touch PC, point of sale (POS) and information kiosks
- Any network device that needs higher PoE power to work normally
User-Friendly Web Management Interface
The UPOE-800G provides a simple Web management interface to allow administrators to remotely control the unit and PoE functions. The unit can automatically detect the power status of each port and display messages on its Web management interface. This allows for a simple and cost-effective management system.
The Ultra PoE Injector Hub features advanced, energy-saving PoE management features:
- PoE schedule
- PD alive check
- Scheduled power recycling
- UPOE, end-span or mid-span selectable in PoE Power Output Mode
- PoE usage monitoring
- Over temperature protection
Intelligent PD Alive Check
PLANET’s Managed PoE product not only support Power over Ethernet technology, but also monitors the PoE status of connected PDs. The UPOE-800G can be configured to monitor connected PD’s status in real time via ping requests via the uplinked Ethernet switch. If the PD stops working, the UPOE-800G will reactivate the PoE port power and reactivate the PD. The unit will greatly facilitate PoE management.
Energy-Efficient PoE Scheduling Features
The UPOE-800G features energy-saving PoE management features. The unit’s “PoE schedule” function helps users enable or disable PoE power feeding for each PoE port during specified time intervals helping SMBs or enterprises save power and money. The unit also increases security by powering off PDs during non-business hours.
Advanced PoE Power Output Mode Management
The UPOE-800G gives three different PoE power output mode options:
- 60W UPOE PoE Power Output Mode (Pin 1, 2, 3, 6 + Pin 4, 5, 7, 8)
- 30W End-span PoE Power Output Mode (Pin 1, 2, 3, 6)
- 30W Mid-span PoE Power Output Mode (Pin 4, 5, 7, 8)
Intelligent LED Indicator for Real-time PoE Usage
The UPOE-800G helps users to monitor the current status of PoE power usage easily and efficiently by its advanced LED indication. Called “PoE Power Usage”, the front panel of the UPOE-800G has four green LEDs indicating 100W, 200W, 300W and 400W of PoE power usage.
Simple PoE Usage Monitoring
Via the power usage chart in the web management interface, the UPOE-800G enables system administrators to monitor the status of the power usage of connected PDs in real time.
Advanced PoE Power Management
To facilitate power management, the UPOE-800G comes with powerful PoE management features such as over-temperature protection, usage threshold alert and auto power allocation to prevent power budget overloading. The PoE power budget can be allocated by priorities or classification and will send alert event logs when power usage reaches a defined threshold.
High Power Budget for 802.3at PoE Extension
The UPOE-800G can extend to much longer distances with PLANET’s PoE Extender. By daisy-chaining multiple PLANET PoE Extenders, network links can be doubled, tripled or quadrupled in distances.
The UPOE-800G features an efficient ventilation system that provides for a silent operation. It’s smart fan technology automatically controls the speed of the built-in fan to reduce noise and maintain the temperature of the Ultra PoE Managed Injector Hub for optimal power output capability. The UPOE-800G offers a high-performing and quiet operation.
