Extending Power over Ethernet Beyond 15.4W per Port
Cisco Enhanced Power over Ethernet is a new innovation for the campus communications fabric that enables new network solutions by making it simpler to deploy new technologies, and by offering more flexible options for deploying those technologies. This accelerates deployment of applications and services, thus maximizing investment protection.
Meeting the needs of customers with an immediate requirement for PoE in excess of 15.4W per port, Cisco delivers an industry first, an extension to 802.3af, called Cisco Enhanced PoE. Delivering between 15.4W and 20 Watts per port, Cisco Enhanced PoE enables new technologies that require greater than the 15.4W per port described by the 802.3af standard to function at full capability with 802.11n access points such as the Cisco Aironet 1250 Series.
Cisco Enhanced PoE is supported on a range of switches across the entire Catalyst switching portfolio, including the Catalyst 6500, the Catalyst 4500 E-Series, the Catalyst 3750-E and Catalyst 3560-E switch portfolios.
