Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) Network Interface Cards (NICs)
As more and more devices are added to data networks, power for those devices can be hard to implement. Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) solves the problem by delivering power along with data to a device over one copper cable, eliminating the need for additional power cable runs or outlets at the device location.
Power-over-Ethernet Network Interface Cards (PoE NICs) allow a PoE-powered device (PD), such as a voice over IP (VoIP) phone, to connect to a secure fiber network as well as to provide power for a PD with a copper interface through the PC. A PoE NIC is ideal in locations where power options are limited, reducing the amount of cable and outlets required. Developed to support fiber-to-the-desk (FTTD) applications, where fiber is the preferred cabling infrastructure due to its ability to provide secure network connections, a PoE NIC can replace two copper-to-fiber media converters at the desktop, saving space while still offering the greater security of fiber-optic cable’s immunity to electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio-frequency interference (RFI), therefore making it more challenging for hackers to tap.
Transition Networks’ PoE NIC is the ideal FTTD solution to provide security, power and data to VoIP phones even when the computer is in sleep mode. View our PoE NIC below.
