Description

A kind of Power over Ethernet devices and methods therefor

Technical field

The present invention relates to the communications field, particularly a kind of Power over Ethernet devices and methods therefor.

Background technology

Power over Ethernet (Power Over Ethernet, POE) is a kind ofly to transmit DC power supply to a kind of technology of power consumption equipment by Ethernet netting twine in the standard ethernet Double-strand transmission data.

International Electronic Engineering Association (IEEE) has ratified to be used for providing at the standard ethernet cable 802.3af standard of supply of electric power in June, 2003.This standard definition a kind of method that allows to transmit in the transmission of data by Ethernet DC power supply, it can be introduced the Power over Ethernet technology safely and reliably in the existing network infrastructure and be compatible mutually with original network equipment, and maximum can provide the power of about 13W.Thus, part mininet equipment such as IP phone, web camera, WAP (wireless access point) and data terminal are connected just can connect to power by Ethernet and need not to use AC Power supply socket, thereby greatly simplified wiring, reduced the construction cost of network infrastructure and will further expand the application of ethernet technology.

Because IEEE 802.3af is day by day ripe, chip market day hastens towards saturation, to the also gradually increase of new demand of standard.From 2005, IEEE entered on follow-on POE standard, and namely the 802.3at standard generally is referred to as POE+.IEEE 802.3at is demand that should high-power terminal and being born, and on the basis of compatible 802.3af, provides larger power demands, satisfies new demand.

Complete POE system generally includes feeder ear equipment (PSE, Power Sourcing Equipment) and receiving end equipment (PD, Powered Device) two parts.PSE equipment is the equipment for the ethernet client power devices, also is the manager of whole POE Power over Ethernet process simultaneously.And PD equipment is the PSE load of accepting power supply, it is the client device of POE system, both are based on the informational linkage of the aspects such as the connection of IEEE 802.3af or the relevant receiving end equipment of at normalization PD, device type, power consumption level, and the PSE that takes this as a foundation powers to PD by Ethernet.

Along with the development of POE power applications, power consumption equipment is also more and more higher to the power requirement that POE power supply provides, and power consumption equipment is also more and more, and the inventor finds that existing POE power supply technique has following defective according to the scrutinizing and verifying of prior art:

1, in the POE equipment that exists on the present market, can not carry out the modular parallel operation;

2, when the receiving end number of devices that connects the POE power supply unit changes, existing POE power supply unit can't fast increase and decrease according to carrying out modularization, when receiving end equipment is too much, need to stop the power supply to the lower receiving end equipment of priority, affect the normal use of power consumption equipment, power supplying efficiency is comparatively low;

3, when a plurality of POE equipment independent operating, the power between each power stage mouth can not be exported according to the dynamic allotment that the variation of power consumption equipment is unified, and has caused the use of POE equipment to lack flexibility.
