Power over Ethernet Capabilities of the HP Ethernet Switch
- The HP J9298A Switch is equipped with 8 Gigabit Ethernet ports that support Power over Ethernet (PoE) capabilities.
- PoE allows the switch to supply power to connected devices, such as IP phones and cameras, through the Ethernet cable.
- The PoE ports on the HP J9298A Switch can provide up to 15.4W of power per port, allowing for a total PoE budget of 124W.
- This eliminates the need for additional power outlets and reduces cable clutter, making deployment and installation easier.
- The switch also supports PoE+ (IEEE 802.3at) and is backward compatible with PoE (IEEE 802.3af) devices.
- The PoE capabilities of the HP J9298A Switch also help to increase energy efficiency, as devices can be powered through the switch instead of requiring separate power sources.
- The switch also supports PoE management, which allows you to control and monitor the power usage of connected PoE devices.
- This feature allows you to ensure that the switch does not exceed its PoE budget, and also helps to detect and diagnose any PoE-related issues.
- The HP J9298A Switch also supports PoE scheduling, which allows you to set specific times for PoE to be enabled or disabled on certain ports.
- This can help to save energy and reduce power consumption when devices are not in use.

About Refurbished Products
Different Types of Switches
Networking switches vary widely depending on the number of devices they can support, network bandwidth/speed, and form factor. Switches for small offices will have anything between 4 and 8 ports and can fit on a desk. For larger office network implementation, switches may have 24 ports, 48 ports, 96 ports, and 128 ports and are rack-mountable between 1U and 4U. Switches come in different types depending on the network speed and tasks they support. These include 40/100 Gbps, 10 Gigabit (up to 10000 Mbps), Gigabit Ethernet (up to 1000 Mbps), Power over Ethernet, and Fast Ethernet (10/100 Mbps).
The unmanaged switches offer fixed configurations on a plug-and-play basis. It is the most basic switch and there are a few choices in the market. These switches are affordable, but the basic features make them inappropriate for enterprise applications.
The number of features and level of functionality improves with managed switches, making them ideal for enterprise and business applications. These switches are built with the command-line interface for ease of configuration. Equally, they support SNMP agents that come in handy when troubleshooting network issues.
The security on managed switches is better and will protect different types of traffic. Other features include support for virtual LANs, IP routing, and quality of service settings. Managed switches are more expensive compared to all other types of switches.
Smart switches refer to switches that possess more features than those unmanaged switches but do not have the full features of managed switches. Smart switches are more cost-effective than managed switches.
Some of the limitations of the smart switches are a lack of telnet access support, Web GUIs, and a lack of many features for VLANs. They are affordable compared to a fully managed switch and are suitable for a smaller computer network.
Modular switches allow the addition of expansion modules as the network expands. The expansion modules allow for more networked devices but are application-specific. They may include wireless access points, firewalls, or network analysis tools. The flexibility of a modular networking switch comes at a higher cost.
