60W Ultra PoE Support

The EX78900's PoE/PSE ports are not only IEEE802.3af/at compliant, but they are also enhanced with ultra-powerful PoE chips to boost the PoE output power up to 60 watts per port, utilizing all 4 pairs of a single CAT5e cable. It enables a wide range of applicable cases with broader end devices support, such as VoIP telephony, Wireless Access Points, high-definition PTZ dome cameras, infrared network illuminators, physical access control with door locks, information kiosks, digital signage, and so on.


Full Gigabit Connectivity

In additional to superior high-power PoE support, the EX78900 switch is equipped with a total of 16 Gigabit ports. The versatile design of the EX78900 series allows port configurations as many as 12 full Gigabit copper ports including 8 PoE ports (60W of each at maximum PoE power budget of 240W) and 4 SFP slots for uplink communication or redundant topology. The overall 32Gbps switching capability is enabled, which is ideal for large video packets transmission.


Secure Management

With intelligent software-based tool, the EX78900 series can execute various management functions to analyze and improve network performance, such as QoS, VLAN, DHCP, Link Aggregation, IGMP snooping, port mirroring, and security features like IEEE802.1X, ACL and RADUIS for remote access control, allowing only authorized communications in the network.


Comprehensive Redundancy Protocols

The EX78900 series supports standard STP/RSTP/MSTP and EtherWAN's exclusive Alpha-Ring redundant protocols, which automatically heals a network disconnection with less than 15ms. The EX78900 also accepts dual industrial power inputs with relay alarms for power redundancy, ensuring smooth and non-stop network communications.


Hardened Grade

The EX78900 series is specifically designed for industrial and tough outdoor environments. With fan-less hardened design and ruggedized aluminum enclosure, the EX78900 series is able to sustain high ESD, EMI, shock and vibration, as well as wide operating temperature range of -40°C to 75°C.

The EX78900 network switch is targeted for mission-critical applications especially those under harsh environments where sustained PoE connectivity is extremely crucial; The EX78900 Series is ideal to be placed in the wayside cabinets in harsh environments.
