Accordin to Altronix “Indoor and outdoor models include hardened Ethernet PoE switches and multi-port media converters with or without integral power. Units can be deployed with conventional single or multi-mode fiber...or composite cable which combines fiber with copper to simultaneously deliver power and data. NetWay Spectrum also features LINQ™ Network Management Technology to remotely monitor, control and report power/diagnostics.”

What is new in NetWay Spectrum?

  • It does not requires a local power while deploying devices over fiber infrastructure
  • NetWay Spectrum is designed and manufactured for use in harsh environments at greater distances.
  • It supports both single and multi-mode fiber, as well as composite cable which combines fiber with copper.
  • NetWay Spectrum features embedded LINQ™ Network Management Technology to remotely monitor, control and report power/diagnostics – streamlining service and maintenance operations by leveraging the network. A built-in timer can reset devices automatically on a schedule.
