Microsemi debuts new family of high-power PoE Midspans

Units feature high-efficiency powering scheme, mutual backup

The PowerDsine PD-9000G family generates safe power over standard Cat 5 cabling, and at the same time provides maximum power, by using a 55 volt output. The PD-9000G family offers full end-user flexibility by powering pre-standard devices, 802.3af devices and 802.3at devices on each port without any restrictions or limitations.

The PD-9001G Midspan unit also includes a unique PowerDsine interlocking feature that allows users to scale deployments by linking together multiple one-port midspan units, as new devices are added to the network.

Pricing and Availability

Pricing for the PD-9000G family starts at $75 per port. Production units of the PD-9000G multi-port family will be available in July 2009, with prototypes and demo units available immediately. PD-9001G single-port midspans are available in production quantities now.

Microsemi is demonstrating the new midspan family this week at Interop Las Vegas 2009, Booth 2451. For more information, visit: www.microsemi.com/powerdsine.
