Positron Access Solutions’ next generation OSIRIS 1012-POE+ Ethernet Switch Platform improves and simplifies the installation, operation, provisioning and powering of Ethernet devices. This managed POE+ switch offers powerful Layer-2 features with the basic Layer-3 features needed by most MTU-MDU and business customers. It is also a great fit for wireless sites that incorporate multiple radio devices that need Power over Ethernet (POE/POE+) and aggregation services. It delivers the best cost performance and lower total cost of ownership and is the ideal companion to the carrier-grade OSIRIS 1024-F 10 Gigabit optical Ethernet switch.

The OSIRIS 1012-POE+ supports 8 Gigabit Ethernet ports (RJ-45) with POE+ as per IEEE 802.3af (POE with 15W per port) and IEEE 802.3at (POE+ with 30W per port) for a total of 130W to all the POE ports. It also includes two (2) dual-footprint (RJ-45 and SFP) Gigabit optical ports for fast aggregation of the POE+ ports to the OSIRIS 1024-F. With support for Energy Efficient Ethernet (as per IEEE 802.3az), customers can reduce their power consumption and take advantage of the state-of-the-art features of the OSIRIS 1012-POE+.

The OSIRIS 1012-POE+ delivers advanced functionality including Layer-3 static routing, DHCP Server, IPv6 support, Link Layer Discovery, etc. It offers comprehensive Quality of Service (QOS) and Security features such as IP Source Guard and Access Control List to protect your network from unauthorized access.
