ALISO VIEJO, CA -- Microsemi Corporation announces the availability of its PDS-104GO outdoor Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) switch, expanding the company's industry-leading PoE product offering to enable the connection of four powered devices to a network. The switch delivers 60 watts (W) of power per device over standard Ethernet cabling to outdoor devices such as wireless local-area network access points (WLAN), Internet protocol (IP) cameras, point-to-point microwave radio and small cells—and is ideal for outdoor deployments in several industries including education, transportation, and government.
The PDS-104GO addresses the increasing power needs of outdoor PoE applications which are connected to several million ports per year, with an estimated serviceable available market (SAM) of approximately $300 million per year according to market research firm Infonetics.
With simple and straightforward deployment, the IEEE802.3at-compliant switch is IP66-rated and can be installed in outdoor environments without the need to open the unit during installation. The switch delivers PoE power up to 60 W per device and enables remote monitoring and control of the device's status, including remote reset. The PDS-104GO also extends the reach between the switch and powered devices (PDs) by an additional 100 meters, to a maximum of 200 meters, a major benefit for many applications. In addition, the device offers lightening protection to the switch itself as well as to the indoor network.
Additional features include:
•Four PoE outputs, up to 60W per port
