"OCTOPUS" CONVERGENCE OUTLETS:
Finally, let's take a look at how we can leverage a small number of DE circuits from one central location directly into work
zones, with critical power as an option, to now power several
local Convergence loads from one or two DE circuits. We
cheekily call a device that takes in one DE line, but has multiple
Convergence Outlets sharing that one DE line an "Octopus".
The PoE switch is a wonderful Convergence Octopus.
DE comes into one DE Receiver, and in turn powers a PoE
switch that has 4 to 24 PoE ports that power a wide range of
For fast fiber GPON networks, GPON ONTs are essentially PoE switches with high-speed fiber data, and 57VDC
power inputs. In a GPON network, VoltServer is delivering a
DE Receiver Octopus that takes one or two DE inputs, and
outputs 8 ports of Class2 100Watt limited 57VDC power.
This allows each GPON zone to be powered remotely and
centrally backed-up from one MDF where the GPON OLT
resides, and then combine 57VDC fresh in the zone vs. from
a distant IDF closet (less electricity used!). The RX5 DE
Receiver can also support 24VDC and 12VDC versions for
distribution center and industrial floor applications.
2018 will deliver real and valuable Convergence Application
outcomes for connected real estate properties and organizations.
Getting data and power quickly and flexibly to where it is
needed is a requirement. Many Convergence Applications will
require or benefit from critical back-up power when the AC
grid is unavailable. And future proofing the data and power
feeds into Convergence zones to empower expansion and reuse for new and enhanced applications is an imperative. Digital
Electricity is providing the power platform as a key ingredient in
this Convergence platform. We look forward to a Convergence
"moving year", partnering to deliver world-class solutions with
the entire Convergence ecosystem.
