Equipment Compatibility

Below are products that have been shown to work with our devices.

Switches / Midspan / Repeaters

Although most of our devices will operate with PoE power, PoE+ is recommended for some of the larger devices and LCD devices for maximum performance.

PoE ports must carry 15.4 W (IEEE 802.3af). Lower port numbers generally work better in some brands, especially if higher port numbers lose some power when lower ports power other PoE devices. Choose a reputable switch and understand its power delivery capabilities. Brands that have worked fairly consistently include:

  • D-Link
  • Adtran Netvanta
  • Cisco
  • HP
  • Juniper
  • PowerDsine
  • Dell

Power Injectors

  • PoE+ (IEEE 802.3at)
    • Phihong
  • PoE (IEEE 802.3af)
    • Phihong
