Storm season is back, bringing with it the potential for significant weather events. If you have clients in areas prone to infrastructure disruption, visit the Disaster Recovery Resources guide for preparedness information. Datto recommends performing proactive disaster recovery testing to mitigate potential downtime.

Do I need a power supply if I'm running POE?


Yes and No.

Yes If you're using the single port POE Injector (APOE02-WM) you must use a power supply.  The power supply connects to the POE injector and injects power across the Ethernet Cable to your POE capable unit

No If you're using either a POE Switch(S8/24/48) or a 8/12 Port Rackmount POE injector a power supply is not required to power the unit as power is supplied by the injector for all the ports.

If you have any questions regarding POE solutions, contact your Datto Sales rep or submit a ticket request.
