Join us on this episode of “Outside the Box” as we unbox the Microchip PDS-204GCO Power over Ethernet (PoE) Switch, an essential component for modern smart buildings and cities. Bryan DeLuca will guide you through its features and why it’s an integral part of today’s urban infrastructure.
In a world where connectivity and data transmission are paramount, PoE switches play a vital role. The Microchip PDS-204GCO is purpose-built for outdoor use in smart cities and buildings, facilitating a wide range of services such as public Wi-Fi, video surveillance, and even connected streetlights. As our urban landscapes evolve, these services demand not only better reliability but also robust cybersecurity protection.
The PDS-204GCO Power over Ethernet switch boasts four PoE Gigabit Ethernet ports, each compliant with the IEEE 802.3bt (Type-4) standard, ensuring high-speed data transfer. Additionally, it incorporates two SFP fiber links, each capable of supporting one gigabit per second or 2.5 gigabit per second speeds. With included AC connectors and mounting brackets, this PoE switch is designed for seamless installation.
For those concerned about network redundancy and protection, the switch supports ITU-T 8032 Ethernet ring protection switching technology. This feature guarantees uninterrupted communication even in the event of an uplink failure.
The Microchip PDS-204GCO accommodates multiple network topologies. You can daisy chain multiple units to extend the network’s reach while reducing the number of optical cables connected to the main central switch from each device. This optimization enhances the reliability and cybersecurity of your network, ensuring that all connected services operate seamlessly.
