PoE power consumption for non Cisco Devices.

Unanswered Question
Sep 25th, 2009


currently we are using Cisco WS-C3550-24-PWR switches across are branch offices and have 6 Cisco handsets running PoE at 6.3 watts each. We are looking to go thin client and use PoE devices for the thin clients. I have 2 questions regarding this, firstly what is the maximum wattage the said switches support and secondly the vendor advises that the particular thin client uses 3.5 watts of power consumption but the demo units are displaying the maximum of 15.4 allowed from the port so is this due to the switch not knowing the device and giving them the full 15.4 watts?


I have this problem too.
