Turn Cisco PoE Switch into Long Range PoE
What is the simple way to turn regular PoE into long-range PoE. You can add a PoE extender to these specific ports. The typical setup is you need to add the PoE extender before 100 meters (328ft). The TCP/IP network reaches up to 100 meters and it will start dropping. If you are working on like 400-meter-long run, then you need to place three PoE extenders. This typical setup creates one possible issue – single failure point. If one of the PoE extenders fails, the whole link will break, and you might need to get all the PoE extenders up before you can figure out the real issue. Working with our PoE extenders, you just need two units at both ends, and you can turn regular PoE into long-range PoE. The maximum distance is 500 meters between these two units PoE extenders, and it is a consecutive run between these two.
