Antaira Awarded New U.S. Patent for UPS that Supplies Power to Network Devices During Switch Reboots
BREA, CA, FEBRUARY 22, 2022 -- The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted Antaira Technologies, a global developer and manufacturer of industrial networking devices, a patent for its innovative application of an uninterruptible power system (UPS) driven by Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology that is now featured in the company's new LMP Series of managed Ethernet PoE switches.
U.S. Patent No. 17/228,851 relates to DC voltage output being supplied to network devices connected to an Antaira PoE switch while that switch is undergoing a reboot, for example during a standard firmware update, therefore preventing power from being dropped to the devices and increasing availability of the network. Among other use cases, this technology is of value to IT managers who require a power cycle of an Antaria PoE switch but not a simultaneous power cycle of devices connected to its Ethernet ports.
"Innovation happens every day at Antaira. We encourage and motivate employees across the enterprise to showcase their inventive spirit," said Carl Stelling, Vice President of Antaira Technologies. "This new patent is an important part of an integrated patent portfolio and supports continued development of solutions that create a lasting impact for Antaira customers' operations."
The UPS technology has garnered accolades, even before the patent was officially granted, from users of Antaira LMP Series Light Layer 3 Managed Ethernet Switches who have praised both its ease-of-use and protection.
Exceptionally resilient, flexible and scalable, Antaira LMP switches redefine lifetime costs for industrial IoT applications and other mission-critical networking needs, without compromising on performance. Customers can opt for affordable LMP-1204G-SFP-bt, LMP-0702G-SFP-bt or LMP-C602G-SFP-bt product series switches, featuring a mix of 6 to 12 Ethernet and SFP fiber ports combined with 802.3bt PoE++ delivering up to 90W per port for power-hungry PTZ cameras, PoE lighting, and thin clients, among others.
