PowerDsine PoE Extender is a cost effective way to extend the Ethernet network range beyond 100m, delivering both data and power to network devices such as WLAN Access Points and Network Cameras up to a distance of 200m while complying with IEEE PoE and Data standards.
The PoE Extender supports 10/100/1000Mbps data rates and delivers 802.3at power levels, up to 25.5W. The PoE Extender does not require local power and is powered via the PoE input.
This review is from: Microsemi PD-PoE-Extender Power Over Ethernet Extender
Pros: Does exactly what it says it will: allows extending of copper Ethernet segments for a much lower cost than it would to run fiber. POE in and POE out up to 25 watts with high power input.
Cons: It does not pass the Ethernet link state down the line; it will always show link up at the near (input) side.
Other Thoughts: It's basically a two port gigabit switch that takes POE in and provides POE out and does not require local power. The extender itself takes a very small amount of power from the total POE budget, so make sure you check the datasheet (available at microsemi.com/powerdsine) if you need to drive a POE device at an extended distance so you know how many watts will be available on the extender's output vs. what the end POE device needs.
I'm using these to place Cisco WS-C2960PD-8TT-L switches (an 8 port switch that is POE powered) up to 200 meters away without having to spend the money on fiber or install power at the far end.
