We have two WS-X6348 48-port RJ-45 power-over-ethernet (POE) cards in our 6509 switch. We do not need to use these cards for POE. Can they be used for non-POE devices without any problem? Does the card have to be configured as such? We are worried about damaging equipment (non-POE device, the WS-X6348 card or the 6509 chasiss itself).
Can anyone render any advice relating to this?
Yes, you can use this module for non-PoE devices. The switch uses CDP to determine if the connected device needs power or not. See the following link for confirmation.
Hope this helps. If so, please rate the post.
