Microsemi Unveils 60W IEEE 802.3at-compliant PoE Midspans for Outdoors

The PD-9501GO/AC single port midspan supports the IEEE802.3at standard at 10/100/1000Mbps data rates for outdoor installations and is backward-compatible with the earlier IEEE802.3af standard. It allows WLAN access points, security network cameras and other IP terminals to receive power, along with data, over standard Ethernet cables, leaving network infrastructure completely unaltered. The midspan also features plug-and-play installation, energy efficiency, location flexibility and low-cost installation.

"Microsemi's PowerDsine PD-9501GO/AC PoE midspan offers highly cost-effective functionality, providing our customers with 60W of power while ensuring safe and reliable operation in outdoor environments," said Amir Asvadi, vice president and general manager of the Analog Mixed Signal Group at Microsemi. "As one of the leaders in PoE technology, Microsemi will continue to expand our PoE solutions for a wide range of market applications, including wireless point-to-point and WiMax/LTE."

The new midspan solves power-deployment challenges associated with outdoor locations where electrical outlets are not always available, extreme temperatures or humidity are often a factor, and equipment must withstand surges caused by lightning. With its surge protection for both the alternating current (AC) and PoE ports, the PD-9501GO/AC protects indoor equipment from outdoor surges that could damage powered devices and their network switches without the need for costly companion protection units.

    In this episode, Security Today Editor-in-Chief Ralph C. Jensen Talks with Steve Karoly about security and transportation issues, specifically airport, airline and passenger security. It is the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks in New York, the Pentagon and Shanksville, PA. Much has changed concerning security efforts about airport transportation security. The conversation talks about the role that technology plays in protecting the flying public and steps taken to ensure there hasn’t been a successful terrorist attack on a U.S. airliner since 9/11. Checkpoint and screening are evolving at a rapid pace, and the conversation centers on new measures and technologies that are being integrated into checkpoints.
