Novobit introduces OE-PoE
We are pleased to announce that Novobit is going to launch a new product: Optically Extended Power over Ethernet (OE-PoE). Below we will give you a short introduction to this new product. Please check our website (Section Products) regularly for the latest updates on OE-PoE.
The OE-PoE developed by Novobit is a system that provides both remote electrical power and optical fiber communication simultaneously. It is a complete indoor solution used to deploy various network devices such as
- Remote monitoring and control: Security cameras, Digital signage, Remote alarming
- Wi-Fi access points
- Additional devices needing PoE
The system allows extending PoE from the standard 100 meters up to distances of 500 meters. It supports a broad range of applications in large buildings such as hotels, hospitals, schools, supermarkets, factories, office buildings, etc.
Main System Components
The Novobit OE-PoE consists of the following main components:
- Central Office Unit
- Hybrid Cable
- Remote Termination Unit.
The Central Office Unit (1U) contains two media converters and two independent power supplies. It is capable of powering a device at distances of 100-500m without the location limit. The Central Office Unit can be easily mounted into an equipment cabinet (plug and play installation).
The indoor/outdoor powered optical hybrid cable is capable of delivering electrical power and optical fiber communication under one sheath in a rapid access cable format. It generates time and cost savings to network providers due to simple cable design and rapid termination.
The Remote Termination Unit consists of one media converter and one independent power supply. It is capable of powering a device at distances of 100-500m without the location limit. The Remote Termination Unit is an indoor wall-mounted type of box that features small size, high reliability, multifunction and customized output voltage. It is easy to deploy (plug and play).
Adopting the Novobit OE-PoE will bring you the following benefits:
- 5x the distance of PoE for indoor application
- The powered optical hybrid cable is capable of delivering electrical power and optical fiber communication under one sheath in a rapid access cable format
- Run multiple devices simultaneously from one power supply
- For large buildings, place network devices exactly where they are needed
- No special know-how for installation is required
- Time and cost savings due to easy deployment
