The Transcend PoE Gateway is a low voltage power distribution and network connected system that utilizes PoE technology. Each Gateway is connected to a Catalyst switch port with a Category Cable. The Transcend Gateway is a Cisco Universal Power over Ethernet (UPoE) compliant device. UPoE extends the IEEE PoE Plus (PoE+) standard (IEEE802.3at) to double the power per port to 60 watts using four pairs. After power negotiation, a secure connection will be established between the gateway and the switch, the Node is then able to distribute power and data to lights, sensors and other devices locally. The network communication is based on CoAP and will allow an easy convergence of IP infrastructure securely thanks to Cisco technology. This way data and commands can be easily passed and integrated with other systems for data analytic needs in a real building automation control installation. On the device side, the gateway will provide power and data using a rugged and robust interface. The Transcend interface is optimized to deliver low voltage power and reliable communication with lights, sensors and other devices.
