Run 500m Cat5e b/w 2 PoE Switches

PoE has a traditional distance limitation of 100 meters/328ft but by using the long-range PoE switch, you can effectively extend PoE to 500 meters. However, an additional PoE extender must be installed for each link to help the PD send back the signal, which inevitably increases the installation costs and the number of cables used. But by connecting two long-range PoE switches together, you can extend the distance to 500 meters without involving any PoE extenders, which significantly reduces labor costs and materials needed for installing separate Ethernet cables and PoE extenders. Moreover, it also simplifies network management, allowing the administrator to control and monitor the PDs from a centralized point.
