TRENDnet(R) Expands PoE Portfolio

TORRANCE, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 29, 2011) - TRENDnet, a best-in-class wired and wireless networking hardware brand, today announces the availability of the 16-Port 10/100Mbps PoE Switch, model TPE-S160. This unmanaged PoE switch reduces equipment and installation costs by delivering data and power over existing Ethernet cables to Power over Ethernet (PoE) enabled devices, such as Access Points and IP Cameras.

Boost office efficiency and reduce network congestion with a total switching capacity of 3.2Gbps generated by sixteen 10/100Mbps Full Duplex PoE ports. LED indicators on the front of the switch display device status for easy power management and troubleshooting. An internal power supply reduces clutter and delivers 15.4 Watts to each PoE port. This rack mountable switch comes in a sturdy metal housing. A convenient on/off button is located on the back of the switch.

Non-PoE devices can also connect to the switch -- auto-sensing PoE technology cuts power to non-PoE connected devices. Use TRENDnet's PoE Splitter, model TPE-112GS, with the TPE-S160 to install non-PoE devices in remote locations.

"Network administrators are discovering the advantages and cost savings of PoE installations," stated Zak Wood, Director of Global Marketing for TRENDnet. "The TPE-S160 complements TRENDnet's broad product portfolio of over 15 PoE solutions."

The 16-Port 10/100Mbps PoE Switch, model TPE-S160, is currently shipping to online and retail partners.

The MSRP for the TPE-S160 is U.S. $449.00
