On the Cat6K, the following linecards support ePoE (all shipping 10/100/1000 PoE LCs) -
â¢ WS-X6148A-GE-45AF, WS-X6548-GE-45AF, WS-X6148-GE-45AF
On the Cat4K, the following linecards support ePoE (all shipping E-series LCs) -
â¢ WS-X4648-RJ45V-E and WS-X4648-RJ45V+E
Is that 30 watts per port? If so this could be something we might be interested in as we're pushing out 15.4 now and still can't get our LWAP's to totally power up.
No this is enhanced PoE in the range 15.4W to 20W/ port. 30W/ port is expected in the new IEEE802.3at std in ~Sept'09.
The Cisco AP1252 can run in a variety of modes requiring different power levels. The power-optimized mode requires 16.8W of ePoE.
EnergyWise is a Cisco architecture to manage and optimize power consumed on the network. It is expected to FCS across the switching portfolio (Cat3K, Cat4K, Cat6K) in CY'09.
The Cisco AP1252 can run in a variety of modes requiring different power levels. The power-optimized mode requires 16.8W of ePoE. Please let me know if you want details on the functioning of the AP in this mode.
Some of the PoEP devices expected in 2009-2010 include next gen IEEE802.11n APs, next gen IP phones, PTZ security cameras, thin clients and digital displays.
