PoE – The Key To Network Efficiency

The Altronix NetWay allows users to maximize their current investment in IP video surveillance systems, and allows system designers to take full advantage of the network platform.


There’s no doubt that networked systems provide tremendous advantages over legacy systems built on aging analog technologies. When you stop to think about it, networking is really not “new” news, as IT networks proliferated years ago, and impact our everyday lives. Just think about how long...

4. Complies with IEEE 802.3af – the proposed PoE standard

NetWay delivers greater functionality and efficiency for IP video systems in 8 and 16 port configurations with reliable and consistent power designed for standard network infrastructure. The units feature plug-and-play installation, along with automatic detection and protection of non-PoE cameras/devices, port status LEDs, and 15.4W maximum full power per port. Altronix’s new NetWay line also includes a single-port midspan injector, repeaters to extend the range up to a max of over 1969 feet (in increments of 328 feet per extender), and 15 and 30-watt adapters for conventional fixed or PTZ cameras. Since NetWay can also be used for access control and locking systems, it provides a total network security PoE solution.

The NetWay8 midspan PoE product provides eight PoE-compliant camera ports in a 1U rack-mount chassis. Two ports are selectable for 30W to accommodate high-current PTZ IP cameras using the NetWay3012 adapter for each camera port. The NetWay16 midspan PoE product provides 16 PoE-compliant ports with four ports selectable to 30W using NetWay3012 adapters.

The NetWay1 single port midspan injector offers a single PoE-compliant camera port and PoE shutdown option. The NetWayXT repeater extends range 328 feet for each unit deployed. The NetWay1512 adapter enables compatibility with non-PoE compliant IP cameras, and the NetWay3012 adapter supplies 30W to accommodate high-current IP cameras, including PTZs.

These innovative new NetWay products deliver the functionality and capabilities that industry professionals need to realize the full benefits of system operation on a networked platform. We are also already developing the next generation of PoE products including end-point solutions that will include additional functionality based on the specific needs of the security industry.

There’s no doubt that IP video surveillance and security systems are the future of the industry with a record number of new installations slated for 2009. We believe the development of solutions like NetWay from Altronix will further accelerate this trend by delivering greater efficiencies across every scale of measure.
