PLANET Ultra PoE Managed Injector Hub series, a cost-effective and quick Ultra PoE solution, is designed to perfectly upgrade an existing network infrastructure to Ultra Power over Ethernet network system without replacing the existing Ethernet Switch.
Ready to Deploy Next Generation Power over Ethernet
The UPOE-1600G is a high-density, rack-mountable managed Ultra PoE injector hub featuring PLANET intelligent PoE functions through web user interface for remote management. It provides 16 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet ports featuring Ultra PoE injector with a total PoE budget of 600 watts. Each PoE port can deliver up to 60-watt power over Cat.5/5e/6 Ethernet UTP cables which allow data and power to transmit simultaneously to a remote 60W and 802.3at/af powered device (PD). The UPOE-1600G enables centralization of the power supply and optimizes the installation and power management of remote network devices, and provides a quick, safe and cost-effective Power over Ethernet network solution for small businesses and enterprises.
Quick and Easy PoE Network Deployment
The UPOE-1600G is installed between a regular Ethernet Switch and the PDs. There are totally 32 RJ45 STP ports on the front panel of the UPOE-1600G, of which the16 ports are on the lower stack functioned as “Data input” while the other 16 ports are on the upper stack functioned as “PoE (Data and Power) output“. Both power and data are transferred simultaneously over the UTP cables to PDs without affecting the existing network performance and functions.
With data and Power over Ethernet from one unit, the UPOE-1600G can reduce power cable deployment and eliminate the need for dedicated electrical outlets on the wall, ceiling or any unreachable place.
802.3bt Ready — 60 Watts of Power over 4-Pair UTP System
The UPOE-1600G Ultra PoE solution adopts the IEEE 802.3at/af PoE standard. Instead of delivering power over 2-pair twisted UTP – be it end-span (Pin 1, 2, 3 and 6) or mid-span (Pin 4, 5, 7 and 8), it provides the capability to source up to 60 watts of power by using all the four pairs of standard Cat.5e/6 Ethernet cabling. In the new 4-pair system, the UPOE-1600G is able to deliver per port up to 60 watts of power to each remote PoE compliant powered device. It possesses double amount of power capability than the conventional 802.3at PoE and is an ideal solution to satisfy the growing demand for higher power consuming network PDs, such as:
■ PoE PTZ speed dome
■ Any network device that needs higher PoE power to work normally
■ AIO (all-in-one) touch PC, point of sale (POS) and information kiosks
■ Remote digital signage display
Friendly Web Management Interface
To efficiently manage the powered devices, the UPOE-1600G provides simple Web management interface in which administrators can control the system and PoE functions for powered devices. It can automatically detect the power status of each port and show messages on its Web management interface. These features also provide users with a cost-effective way to manage the device via Internet whenever they are at work or at home.
Built-in Unique PoE Functions for Powered Device Management
As it is the managed Ultra PoE Injector Hub for VoIP, wireless and surveillance networks, the UPOE-1600G features the following special PoE management functions:
■ PoE schedule
■ PD alive check
■ Scheduled power recycling
■ UPOE, end-span or mid-span selectable in PoE Power Output Mode
■ PoE usage monitoring
■ Over temperature protection
Intelligent Powered Device Alive Check
PLANET’s Managed PoE products adopt not only Power over Ethernet technology, but also automated PD monitoring and real-time PoE status. The UPOE-1600G can be configured to monitor connected PD’s status in real time via ping action through the uplinked Ethernet switch. Once the PD stops working and responding, the UPOE-1600G will recycle the PoE port power and bring the PD back to work. It also will greatly enhance the network reliability in that the PoE port will reset the PD power, thus reducing administrator’s management burden.
PoE Schedule for Energy Saving
Under the trend of energy saving worldwide and contributing to environmental protection on the Earth, the UPOE-1600G can effectively control the power supply besides its capability of giving high watts power. The built-in “PoE schedule” function helps you to enable or disable PoE power feeding for each PoE port during specified time intervals and it is a powerful function to help SMBs or enterprises save power and money. It also increases security by powering off PDs that should not be in use during non-business hours.
Advanced PoE Power Output Mode Management
To fill the demand of various powered devices consuming stable PoE power, the UPOE-1600G provides three different PoE power output modes for selection.
■ 60W UPOE PoE Power Output Mode (Pin 1, 2, 3, 6 + Pin 4, 5, 7, 8)
■ 30W End-span PoE Power Output Mode (Pin 1, 2, 3, 6)
■ 30W Mid-span PoE Power Output Mode (Pin 4, 5, 7, 8)
Advanced Power Management
To facilitate power management, the UPOE-1600G comes with powerful PoE management features such as over temperature protection, usage threshold alert and auto power allocation to prevent power budget overloading. The PoE power budget can be allocated by priorities or classification and sent alert event logs when power usage reaches the defined threshold.
Intelligent LED Indicator for Real-time PoE Usage
The UPOE-1600G helps users to monitor the current status of PoE power usage easily and efficiently by its advanced LED indication. Called “PoE Power Usage”, the front panel of the UPOE-1600G has four green LEDs indicating 150W, 300W, 450W and 600W of PoE power usage.
PoE Usage Monitoring
Via the power usage chart in the web management interface, the UPOE-1600G enables the administrator to monitor the status of the power usage of the connected PDs in real time.
High Power Budget for 802.3at PoE Extension
With IEEE 802.3af/802.3at PoE output capability, the UPOE-1600G can extend much longer distance by using PLANET PoE Extender for powering up the PoE PD which can be installed over more than 100 meters away. By daisy-chaining multiple PLANET PoE Extenders, it offers the great flexibility of doubling, tripling or quadrupling the distance of PoE network.
Smart Fan Design for Silent Operation
The UPOE-1600G features a low noise design and an effective ventilation system. It supports the smart fan technology that automatically controls the speed of the built-in fan to reduce noise and maintain the temperature of the Ultra PoE Managed Injector Hub for optimal power output capability. The UPOE-1600G is able to operate reliably, stably and quietly in any environment without affecting its performance.
