Technological advancements in the world of Fibre optics are opening up new options when an organisation is considering deployment of devices in locations where access to power is difficult.
With devices such as security cameras, Wi-Fi access points and other network access resources becoming increasingly ubiquitous, deployment of these devices can be challenging, particularly in large campus style locations, stadiums and outdoors.
Many devices have PoE capability but network design can be problematic due to issues such as distance constraints and power availability. Powering devices in these challenging locations is now simplified due to advancements with Powered Fibre technology. New fibre cable technology can deliver Power over Ethernet at distances of up to 30 times greater than CAT cable systems.
With Powered Fibre, a “rack to device” power solution is now possible.
Some benefits of Powered Fibre are as follows;
- Allows network planning that places devices in optimal positions, not only where power supply permits
- Multiple devices from a single power source can be powered
- Planning is expedited as DC voltage drop issues are reduced or eliminated
- Eliminates need for local /device specific power sources
