This technology is a complete ‘rack to device’ that integrates solutions for IP cameras, Wi-Fi hotspots, small cells, and other network devices. It provides power to devices via a data cable when no power outlet at the source is available.
Powered fibre works at 30x the distance of POE, eliminating the reliance of local power sources, allowing for centrally UPS supported or clean power supplies. It reduces landlord /utility negotiations to deliver network and power to these remote devices.
The system, much like a long extension cord, comprises of a rack-mounted power distribution unit, a power/fibre distribution box, powered fibre optic cable and a POE extender.
It is an ideal solution for large real estate where power or network access is not available. Including event locations, external production plants, MOD estates, airports or a large campus facility in a remote location.
On Thursday 10th October 2019 11 am we will be delivering a 30-minute webinar in partnership with CommScope that will provide you with an insight into how Powered Fibre could extend your network. The panel of experts will discuss how Powered Fibre ensures reliability by minimising points of failure, makes installations more straightforward, and reduces operating & maintenance costs.
The session will cover the basic design and installation of small cells, Wi-Fi hotspots, IP cameras, and a variety of other devices requiring optical communications and DC power in one system.
We will demonstrate how Powered Fibre cable solutions allow you to install network access devices in the most challenging and distant locations.
