Power over Ethernet, POE Switches are a great choice for those looking to take their network to the next level. POE switches are a form of HUB switch that actively supplies power to POE compatible devices such as IP security cameras, meaning they don’t need an external power source or additional wiring for the installation. This convenience saves time and effort when setting up your network, as all the power and data will run through one CAT5 cable.
Having a POE switch installed in your network ensures that easily connected camera systems will have constant access to power and an uninterrupted Internet connection. In addition, cabling for the cameras can be run directly to the switch, making setup and expansion of the system simpler and faster. You can even use POE switches to power multiple cameras, as each port is capable of supplying up to 30 Watts of power.
POE switches are essential for providing cost-effective, reliable power and data transmissions across a network. They also provide enhanced security features, allowing users to monitor and control who is accessing the network. Furthermore, they can be used to control the priority of data transmissions, allowing the most important data to come through first.
An additional benefit of POE switches is that they provide better data transmission speeds, allowing for HD video streaming with minimal latency. In addition, they serve as a fantastic, cost-effective alternative to bulky power over Ethernet (PoE) injectors.
Overall, POE switches are an excellent solution for those looking to expand their network with efficiency, reliability, and cost-effectiveness. With their power and data delivery capacities, they are a great choice for those looking to make use of IP security cameras, wireless networks and other PoE compatible devices. Furthermore, the convenience of running power and data on a single CAT5 cable makes them a great choice for cleaner, quicker installations.
