Supply power to PoE devices on demand. The SRPM24 Power over Ethernet (PoE) midspan is ideal for adding PoE functionality to an existing network. Many network devices such as wireless access points and IP telephones support PoE to power the device instead of connecting to a power outlet. The benefits of using PoE include cost savings from not requiring new power outlets to be installed in remote locations, easier portability of devices, more freedom of where to place devices, and providing a central source for supplying power backup. The SRPM24 is designed to be scalable, so only PoE powered devices need to be connected to the unit and non-PoE devices can connect directly to a switch. For ease of management, the SRPM24 supports both SNMP, CLI command line, and a web-based interface to monitor and manage the device.
