What is a Power over Ethernet injector, and when are they needed in Datto Networking?
- Datto Networking
A Power over Ethernet injector is a modular power supply that provides PoE functionality on a network with a non-PoE switch. If your network switches do not have Power over Ethernet capability, you will need a PoE injector to power Datto Networking access points. PoE injectors are available through Datto. Older PoE modules may not work with current Datto Networking equipment.
