3850 PoE+ Switch

Hi

I have a PoE device (IP Camera) works on IEEE802.3af. Just need to confirm , if we connect PoE Device to Cisco 3805 PoE+ Switch (IEEE802.at).

Then Would the PoE device work with Cisco 3805 PoE+ i.e Can Switch able to send the Data and Power to PoE device and whether the PoE Device will work with 3850 PoE+ feature.

Why am i asking this as Power rating for PoE and PoE+ are different.

Hope you understand the concern. Waiting for the reply from your end.

Thanks

Amey

Hi,

The 3850 series supports POE+ which is up to 30W power on all ports.  So, if your camera is not POE+, that is fine.  It will still work with POE+ ports.  It is just your camera consume less power which is fine.

It will work fine.  You have two choices:

1.  If your camera support Cisco's CDP, after the camera has completely boot up, it will negotiate to the correct power requirement. 

2.  If the camera does not support Cisco's CDP, look through the manufacturer's website or documentation and find out what is the required power.  Then you can configure this value in the interface of the switch.
