Huawei & Aurora Multimedia To Introduce World's First 10G PoE Solution At ISE 2017

AMSTERDAM, Feb. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Huawei announces the world's first network switch to allow the IPX transceiver by Aurora Multimedia Corporation to receive Power over Ethernet (PoE) directly from the 10G network switch at ISE 2017. The switch will enable 10G speed and PoE function to be carried by the same data cables, a much needed solution for the AV industry. Huawei is a partner with Aurora in their IPBaseT® technology, which debuted over two years ago with the IPX Series, 10G with zero compression/zero latency and 4K streaming boxes and wall plates.

Huawei is releasing its 24-port S6720-32C-PWH-SI and its 48-port S6720-52X-PWH-SI 10G PoE/PoE+/PoE++ switches in the second quarter of 2017. With Aurora's technology, the products will exhibit the effectiveness of 10G PoE in real-world applications and usher in a new era of 10G products.

"We are glad to work with Aurora on this innovative solution," said Kevin Hu, President of Switch & Enterprise Gateway Product Line at Huawei. "This is an up and coming use case in the industry requiring 10G speed and PoE function.

"It is truly exciting to see the low latency, non-compressed 4K video transmitted through our new S6720 series switches," continued Hu. "We look forward to future collaboration with Aurora to provide the most advanced solutions to the A/V Industry."

This new solution adds to Huawei's broad array of switches. Huawei switches are designed to help customers achieve their business priorities, whether it's speed, security, strength, cloud computing, big data, or as with Aurora Multimedia.

"Aurora designed the IPX Series with the intent of changing the topology of A/V industry and is the first to introduce many new capabilities never previously accomplished on a streaming platform," stated Paul Harris CEO of Aurora. "PoE over 10G is one of the capabilities, but requires the industry to provide the other half. Huawei is an Aurora IPBaseT® partner and I am pleased to collaborate and show the way to a new era of streaming content over 10G networks with no power supplies at the end points."

The S6720 series switches include:

  • 24*10G or 48*10G PoE Ports and 4*10G SFP+ Ports
  • Pluggable Redundant Power Supplies
  • Up to 320G Stack Bandwidth
  • 60 W PoE++, long-distance power supply and Fast PoE
  • Multi Speed Support

Huawei experts will be available to discuss the S6720 series switches in Booth 11-C110 at ISE 2017.
