Airlive releases new generation intelligent PoE switch


Airlive, a global provider of network communication and IP Surveillance solutions, is launching a new generation of intelligent PoE switch. The POE-GSH2624-370 features graphical management, device monitoring, auto topology, camera live view, smart PoE, and L2+ management all-in one unit. Besides providing full power to PoE AP, IP camera, IP phones, the new intelligent PoE switch also supports a graphical management environment to help troubleshoot a network facility and auto repair it when devices are defined as not functioning. This greatly increases the device up-time and system availability in addition to reducing the manpower cost.

The switch features 24×10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet ports and 2 SFP fibre combo ports. It is in a 19-inch rack mountable metal housing. The switch’s backplane throughput is up to 52 Gbps of capacity. The switch is also 802.3az compliant to save energy when a port has no transmission activities.

The switch is equipped with 24 IEEE 802.3af/at compliant Gigabit PoE ports that can power up AP, IP camera, or IP phones. With 370 Watts of total power budget, it means user can connect 24 devices and still deliver full power to each port. This is an important function, especially for IP cameras and 11ac Wireless AP as they demand more power.

Users can set a schedule for each PoE port to save energy during office off hours. The device guard function detects the well-being of the configured PoE device and recovers the device automatically when needed. This increases device up-time and saves the costs of sending a technician.
