India-based company Original Products Pvt Ltd., a first-time exhibitor at CABSAT, will showcase satellite supported products at the show.
With demand for telecommunications equipment in the region and around the world high, the company hopes to better understand the needs of its companies in the region and offer alternative market solutions.
The company will particularly focus on the benefits of the PoE injector, a device required to connect or attach a non-PoE LAN switch port to a PoE network-enabled device. With the use of a PoE injector, the requirement for AC power lines for IP phones, wireless access points, and network cameras is diminished because LAN cabling delivers both data and DC power.
A PoE injector that is compliant with IEEE, offers power between 12 watts to 70 watts. The rules or guidelines for PoE are defined by the IEEE 802.3 working group. However, it does not require special cabling although an 8-pin network cabling for Ultra-PoE connections is recommended as the standard set for all networking pins is eight. Cheaper versions, however, may have four pins.
Furthermore, PoE injectors that are IEEE 802.3af/at/bt compliant are considered the safest to use. PoE technology is coupled with a plethora of benefits. When using the injectors, electricians are redundant because installation is easy for new devices in places with electricity shortages. Also, ethernet networking cabling obliterates the need for DC/AC power supplies.
When connected to a UPS, PoE-powered devices can offer a constant power supply. Connected PoE devices may be remotely started using PoE switches. Notably, the latest PoE switches are blended with watchdog features and functionality this reducing a device’s downtime.
“We want to increase the reach of our products in MENA and the African continent, basically connecting people, creating customers and building business,” a spokesperson at the company stated.
“We are looking for experienced distributors in MENA and the African continent for distributing our products on a large scale,” he added.
