Re: Cable Nazis... Grab a tissue

[PS: It's worth noting your switch or midspan would need a 750W or 1700W power supply *just for PoE* to run such a setup.]

BTW some POE switches do have that

The ones where I work have dual 930watt powersupplies
so in theory 1860watts, I think when one PS fails it cuts the available PoE power down to what one powersupply can do.

Yes, but they are exceedingly expensive, rather large, and generate far more heat than all the wiring in the building.

HIPOE is awesome, but you're right it is horribly expensive even in lower density options.

I really don't foresee any issue with POE heating cables.

Ya the heat coming off the switches is far more than all the wiring in the place.

I was just pointing out that some switches do have that kinda wattage, though how much is for POE and how much is for the switches to do normal stuff I'm not sure but I'd bet the bulk is for POE.
