PoE over fibre optic?

The JC

Recommended Posts

Connecting network switches in 2 venues (approx. 100m apart) via fibre optic. I need a tannoy control module in venue 1 (routed via the network switch) to provide PoE to its microphone pager in venue 2, which will get plugged into the other network switch. Will the fibre optic line be able to accommodate this?

That would be a hell of a laser to supply enough power for PoE. ;)


Just get the second network switch with PoE (if that's possible) or use an injector as suggested. I don't love injectors as they're janky bits of kit usually, but if you need it, then....
