How to Understand PoE and PoE+ Switches

Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) is the technology that allows network switches to transmit power and data through an Ethernet cable at the same time. PoE switch streamlines both of the processes of powering and providing data to the device, which makes it a straightforward and reliable device for home network and small enterprise application. This article describes two types of PoE (PoE…

Why Choose PoE Switch for Your Network?

PoE is a technology which enables electrical power to pass over Ethernet cable at distances up to 100m. It is developed to reduce the cost of network planning, cabling, and installation. PoE is primarily used for low-powered terminal devices, typically VoIP phones, IP cameras, and wireless access points, but it can also provide a redundant power supply for switches to…

OM1, OM2, OM3, OM4 Multimode-Fiber-Types

What Are OM1, OM2, OM3 and OM4 Fiber Patch Cable?

Fiber optic cable can be divided into several types. Usually, we see single-mode and multimode fiber types available on the market. Multimode fibers are described by their core and cladding diameters. The diameter of the multi-mode fiber is either 50/125 µm or 62.5/125 µm. At present, there are four commonly used OM (multimode) fibers: OM1, OM2, OM3, and OM4. Each…
