Hierarchy Level


Configure a four-pair PoE port to deliver up to 60 W of power. The four-pair PoE standard allows for power to be delivered over all four pairs of wires in a standard CAT5/6 RJ-45 Ethernet cable.

When you configure the four-pair PoE port with the high-power option, the port provides up to 60 W of power, even if the powered device does not consume that amount of power.


By default the PoE port operates in two-pair mode and provides power up to 30 W in accordance with the IEEE 802.3at PoE+ standard.
