Based on its recent analysis of the scalable Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes PANDUIT Corp. with the 2007 Frost & Sullivan North American Product Innovation of the Year Award for its development of the DPoE™ Compact 8 Midspan product, a scalable and highly innovative solution for Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet networks.
“PANDUIT Corp. solution’s unique DC-mode of operation distinguishes it from conventional AC-driven PoE solutions, and endows it with superior performance and heat dissipation capabilities,” says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Narendran Vaideeswaran. “Backed by leading-edge technology and a forward-thinking management, PANDUIT solutions have been able to deliver the highest reliability for the lowest operational cost.”
Power manageability and scalability are considered the hallmarks of an effective PoE solution and the PANDUIT® DPoE™ Compact 8 Midspan delivers on both counts. This solution not only provides reliable and robust power but can also reach Ethernet-based devices that cannot be easily serviced by conventional powering methods. Thus, the DPoE™ solution is able to efficiently cater to Ethernet network devices requiring data port convergence by using the power Midspan solution.
The DPoE™ solution is further distinguished for its ability to support a wide variety of wireless access points and IP cameras that do not have access to a reliable power supply point. PANDUIT has taken care to incorporate special shielded ports in its DPoE™ product to guard against disturbances in the transmission of data caused by electromagnetic and radio frequency interference. Such innovations facilitate optimum data transmission efficiency and are a clear testimony to the company’s vision and inventiveness in designing its products.
Furthermore, realizing that scalability and modularity are absolutely essential aspects of any solution in today’s communications-driven world, PANDUIT has endeavored to develop products that cater to even small and medium PoE requirements.
The DPoE™ Compact 8 Midspan has a power capacity of 32 watts per port, which is twice the IEEE 802.3af standard, and can support power demands of next-generation PoE devices. Since strong network management is critically important in any network, PANDUIT has designed its PoE solution to support SNMPv3 and has the added option of integrating the module with HP open view network management platform.
By consistently using advanced analytical modeling and prototyping methodologies, PANDUIT has been able to ensure that its products have a distinct edge in terms of quality and reliability.
“For its outstanding achievement in product development and innovation as epitomized by its development of the DPoE™ Compact 8 Midspan, Frost & Sullivan is pleased to recognize PANDUIT with the 2007 Frost & Sullivan North American Product Innovation of the Year Award,” concludes Vaideeswaran.
