September 29, 2006 -- Belden has introduced its managed PowerSense midspan Power over Ethernet (PoE) hubs. With the addition of network management features, the company says the PowerSense hubs deliver even greater cost savings for large distributed networks by allowing greater levels of monitoring and control of powered end devices.

"Corporate network managers want better control and management of all their network appliances," comments Lance Rasmussen, Belden's PowerSense products sales manager. "Now that our PowerSense midspan hubs are available with network management capabilities, they offer an ideal choice, especially for applications powering wireless access points and IP security cameras. These devices typically have software upgrades that require rebooting the AP or camera. With our managed PoE solution, they can simply turn power on or off throughout the distributed network from a central site."

"We are constantly listening to our customers' needs and requirements and developing new PowerSense products to meet them," adds Ron Bose, Belden's PowerSense VP of engineering. "Our new network management capabilities will enhance the end user experience and reduce administration time and costs."

PoE technology allows powering of devices such as VoIP phones, wireless access points, and IP security cameras over the LAN data cabling infrastructure. Centralized powering of these networked devices saves end users time and money over traditional powering techniques. Belden says its modular PowerSense midspan PoE hubs provide further cost savings through the continued use of existing non-powered Ethernet switches.
