Crestron today introduced a new 16-Port Managed Power over Ethernet (PoE) Switch. Built for both home and commercial networks, the CEN-SWPOE-16 is a commercial-grade PoE switch meant for high performance control networking. The switch offers PoE on every port, remote management/monitoring of each port, touch screen control capability and PoE+ for running power-hungry Type 2 devices.
Using a single rack space, all 16 Gigabit capable ports supply maximum bandwidth for HD digital AV distribution and critical control data. The CEN-SWPOE-16 provides full PoE from all 16 ports simultaneously and supports PoE+ from any port, delivering a maximum of 34.2 watts per port up to a total of 255 watts for all ports.
PoE at each port can be switched on and off from a control system. All ports are located on the rear of the unit while the front panel provides clear indication of each port’s status. A Web interface offers advanced configuration, while port mirroring capability allows for monitoring and troubleshooting.
