PowerDsine has announced the availability of its 3006 PoE Midspan, a 6-port Power-over-Ethernet midspan designed for the small-to-medium business market.
The 3006 PoE Midspans are designed to allow a cost-effective way for these businesses to deploy low-density installations of powered terminals, such as wireless LAN Access Points (WLAN APs), network security cameras and Internet Protocol (IP) phones.
The 3006 Midspan is the latest product to emerge from PowerDsine's PoE midspan portfolio. For WLAN deployments, the midspan supports up to six WLAN APs, replacing current 1-port power injector solutions that only support one dedicated powered terminal. Using multiple 1-port power injectors for low-density WLAN installations creates problems for IT managers who require a scalable solution to support their WLAN AP installations. The midspan is compliant with the IEEE 802.3af PoE standard and supports pre-standard terminals as well.
"While wireless LAN access points are installed today using PoE in many markets, the small- to medium-sized business market has not had a multiple port midspan solution available to suit its budget requirements and deployment needs," says Igal Rotem, CEO of PowerDsine. "We believe that the 3006 6-port PoE solution will reduce costs and accelerate deployment times by eliminating one-port power injector solutions for low-density wireless LAN installations."
PowerDsine has offices in Farmingdale, NY. For more information visit
