  • Solving Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) Challenges

    Solving Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) Challenges

    Certain cities that have a more moderate fluctuation in temperature may not need extended temperature-rated network equipment, and sometimes putting a solution together requires a total system outlook. Often, there may be more than one solution to a problem. An equipment manufacturer with deep application knowledge can be an invaluable advisor during the design phase, preventing mistakes and helping to find cost savings. The recent deployment of Transition Networks new SGPOE Power-over-Ethernet Media Converters
    in a city-wide outdoor security installation offers rich lessons in overcoming system-level obstacles.
