The Gigabit Power over Ethernet Splitter (TPE-112GS) splits a networked PoE signal into separate power and Gigabit data sources. This device allows administrators to run Gigabit speed PoE cables over long distances and then split the PoE signal into separate data and power sources in order to network non-PoE devices. Save installation and equipment cost when installing access points, IP cameras and more in remote locations. No need to install network devices near a power outlet. This compact device safeguards valuable network equipment with short circuit protection. Quickly create an integrated PoE and non PoE network at Gigabit speeds.
This review is from: TRENDnet TPE-112GS Gigabit Power over Ethernet (PoE) Splitter
Pros: Coupled with the TPE-111GI, this seems to have no problem powering my Asus rt-n16 router. Now I've got all my core network components on the same UPS. Comes with two DC power adapter cables.
Cons: I wish the data out cable was was just an rj45 socket so I could replace it if needed. However, it's a much more sturdy cable than the product pictures would lead you too believe. I don't expect it to be a problem.
Other Thoughts: I run my rt-n16 slightly underclocked (400MHz) for power an longevity. A kill-a-watt on the wall wort shows it typically draws just under 6W, so there's a decent amount of headroom for what this PoE setup can provide. I'm only running 100Mbps through it due to upstream surge protector, so can't vouch for gigabit performance.
