Microsemi’s Power over Ethernet technology allows integration of data, voice and power on standard Ethernet. Consolidation of power and data is a key enabler for simpler and more cost-effective installation of IP phones, Access Points and other devices like IP cameras. Installations that were previously considered difficult and expensive become possible and profitable. With more possibilities and fewer objections OneDefense partners can provide greater value and faster return on investment for you and your customers.
Microsemi provides immediate ROI and achieves cost savings of up to 30%-35% by adding PoE Midspans to existing rack solutions, rather than replacing infrastructure with new, PoE-enabled switches. Fast installation cycles afforded by the use of PoE Midspans with existing switching infrastructure will enable an almost 20% reduction of business downtime, effectively increasing overall productivity.
Power over Ethernet technology saves the time and cost of installing separate power cabling, AC outlets and wall warts, and eliminates the need for dedicated UPS for individual devices. Power over Ethernet is the ideal power solution for a vast array of data and telecom equipment for business, industry and home use. Primary markets include virtually any enterprise with an Ethernet network supporting or installing an IP telephony system or wireless LAN.
Learn Power over Ethernet (PoE):
Power-over-Ethernet allows IP telephones, wireless LAN access points, surveillance cameras and other enterprise terminals to safely receive power over standard category 5 LAN cabling, without modification to existing infrastructure. PoE is already widely adopted in the market providing for faster, less disruptive and more flexible powering scheme than AC whilst saving up to 80% of overall installation costs. In summary: Ease of Deployment, Improved Network Reliability, Cost savings and Safety. Microsemi’s portfolio consists of:

Opportunities for Power-over-Ethernet exist in applications that require consolidated power and data. The 3 most important are:
The Microsemi Power-over-Ethernet Tester (PD-TESTER), connected to a RJ-45 outlet, tests the cabling infrastructure for the presence of power, either IEEE802.3af standard-compliant or pre-standard. The PoE Tester identifies the existence and type power sourcing equipment (either endspan or midspan) in your network. Contact your local Comstor account manager to get your Tester or click <<here>> for more information.
Microsemi offers it’s customers to participate in their <<Preferred Partner Program>>. This program gives participants a lot of benefits, like: extra discounts, free marketing collateral, dedicated sales and technical training, a password protected access to the Preferred VAR section on Microsemi’s website and the Microsemi Demo Program. What do you have to do? Go to the Microsemi website and fill in the Preferred VAR Application form.
The Microsemi Compatible Products Program ensures that products developed by original equipment manufacturers are compatible and capable of interoperating with Microsemi technology. Microsemi is Cisco Technology Developer Partner, click <<here>> to read more. Microsemi is also part of IEEE. 802.3AAF is the global standard for remotely powering Ethernet devices over LAN infrastructure. The standard defines the specifications of delivering power standard Ethernet cables, and stipulates the way to design Ethernet power sourcing equipment and powered terminals.
