In Fibre To The Office (FTTO) networks, an optical fibre is installed from a central building or campus distributor to the workplace. At the workstations, so-called FTTO switches are used to connect the subscriber via twisted pair patch cables. These FTTO switches are installed like power sockets in a cable duct or a floor box and thus integrated into the building. Serving these switches with power can be realized in different ways.
Technology drivers such as Power over Ethernet (PoE), WiFi-6, convergence and Building Internet of Things (BIoT) are changing the design, implementation and management of data and power infrastructure. Is your network future-ready?
At Nexans, customer satisfaction always has the highest priority. In order to achieve this goal, we set the highest standards for the quality of our services.
The 7 port switch is part of the GigaSwitch V5 series. This special version has four user ports and three uplinks in different combinations. This allows e.g. the redundant connection of the switches via fibre and the parallel connection of PoE end devices via the RJ45 uplink. A special version has a PoE+ PSE (Power Source Equipment) uplink as well as a PoE+ PD (Powered Device) uplink that allows remote powering.
In order to increase security in Fibre To The Office (FTTO) networks, a technical security measure has been introduced in addition to client and user authentication: The use of Network Access Control Lists (NACL or ACL for short). Learn more:
Often, due to structural conditions, extensions in existing IT infrastructures cannot be implemented at all or only with great difficulty and at high cost. With Nexans GigaSwitch V5 cable duct switches, the flexibility and efficiency of the existing IT infrastructure can be increased significantly.
Nexans iGigaSwitch 10xx family can power end devices with the latest PoE++ standard. The switch has up to 10 x 1 Gigabit Ethernet copper and fibre-optic ports in different combinations.
Modern communication infrastructures in large Office environments, training and laboratory rooms, as well as in schools and universities require an ever-greater flexibility in terms of connection technology for power and data.
Typical applications for PoE are wireless LAN accesspoints, IP cameras and Voice over IP phones. For Building Internet of Things (BIoT) the number of possible applications grows continuously. Are performance classes in the range of 60 or 90W really needed today?
For over 10 years, Austrian company Energie AG Oberösterreich has relied on Nexans LANactive Industry Solutions for the networking of its technical control systems, in a wide range of areas.
