|All of Advanced Network Devices' products are Power over Ethernet (PoE) and provide paging, intercom and mass notification functionality. Their display products provide a synchronized clock display as well as configurable messaging, RSS and Twitter feeds. They require only an RJ-45 connector to connect to existing data networks allowing all content to be delivered via IP (internet protocol).
Power over Ethernet (PoE) is a technology for wired Ethernet LANs (local area networks) that allows the electrical current. This technology allow you to minimize the number of wires necessary in a network for the operation of each device. Both power and data are carried by the data cables rather than a traditional power cord resulting ultimately in lower installation and operating cost, greater flexibility and ease in installation, and reduces the need for any high-voltage precautions.
Installations Just Became Easier, Faster, and Less Costly
Network installations can be accomplished easier, faster, and for less cost. Power over Ethernet allows for the option of self-installation without compromizing flexibilty of system design. There is no longer a need for installation of AC outlets to be able to hang the devices in the desired location, greatly diminishing the electrical component from network installation projects. Installations can be accomplished easier, faster, and for less cost.
Flexibility in Network Design
PoE eliminates the constraints of AC power outlets. This provides flexibility in placing PoE-enabled network equipment such as Advanced Network Devices IP Endpoints in the most optimal locations rather then those that are most convenient to existing AC outlets. Ideal placement can lead to more efficient network design and optimal performace, which can reduce cost.
Centralized Power Management
Using a PoE infrastructure enables centralized power management for mission critical network devices. In a power outage some systems can require several costly battery backups to act as an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) in critical situations. With PoE, a single, centrally managed UPS can be used to supply backup power to your entire network as well as allow for central managment of remote shutdowns or resets saving the time and expense of dispatching a technician.
