The Linksys 12 Volt Power
Over Ethernet Adapter Kit lets you put your access points
almost anywhere, by removing the requirement of nearby
power outlets. By using the existing Category 5 Ethernet
cabling to deliver power to many standard 12 volt access
points and other network devices, you save the time,
hassle, and expense of running AC power to the access
point's installation location.
The best position for a wireless access
point is usually on the ceiling, in the center of the
area to be covered. Second best would be high on a nearby
wall. Unfortunately, there's usually no easily accessible
AC power plugs available in these locations. With the
Power Over Ethernet Adapter Kit, installing the access
point in these preferred spots becomes far less trouble.
The 12 Volt Power Over Ethernet Adapter
Kit is a two piece set. The "Injector" sends
both power and data over one Category 5 cable to your
access point, wireless router or bridge. Then the tiny
"Splitter", placed at the remote location,
separates the network data and DC power back into two
cables, and delivers them to the access point. The Injector
can also be used by itself with POE-enabled network
devices that accept 48 volts directly on a POE port.
When it's time to expand your wireless
network, let the Linksys 12 Volt Power Over Ethernet
Adapter Kit simplify your installation.
