The PoE4 supports 10G speeds (up to 10GBASE-T) and provides production testing of 24 PSE ports compatible with IEEE Standards 802.3af and 802.3at as well as proprietary UPoE and PoE++ implementations. It can draw over 600mA on up to two power pairs per port (over 60W per port) while passing 10Gb traffic. It provides high density with 24 Powered Device (PD) loads in a 1U high chassis. To reduce cost, the datapath of each UUT port is connected to its neighbor for loopback testing (port 1 – 2, 3 – 4, etc). Data traffic is either generated by the switch if it has a diagnostic ability, or externally and routed through each port by using the appropriate VLAN configuration.
The PoE4 is a 1U high enclosure with 24 UUT ports.
PoE4 models support 10G speeds and are 100% backward compatible. Contact Technical Support if you need legacy documentation.
