Antaira's New Patented Technology: Persistent PoE!
Persistent PoE is a patented technology feature found on Antaira’s bt PoE managed switches. This feature allows an Antaira switch to reboot while still delivering PoE power to a connected PoE-powered device.
With an increased number of devices relying on power delivered through a switch’s PoE feature, the Persistent PoE technology has become vital. When the switch firmware needs to be updated, - it requires a reboot. During this reboot, it would be ideal to prevent the attached PoE-powered IP camera from also rebooting, since certain cameras can take several minutes to reboot, creating a temporary blind spot in the camera’s surveillance footage. It is also common for PoE lighting and PLCs to be powered by a switch’s PoE, however, if these devices are not available while the firmware is updating, problems could arise.
Antaira’s Persistent PoE technology can help solve these problems by providing PoE and powered devices with uninterrupted PoE power. This allows for the PoE network to remain stable while still capturing every critical moment securely with minimal downtime.
