5 port gigabit switch powered over POE via one of the cables

(1/12) > >>

I need one of these for a location where there is no power, but I can supply power over one of the cables, from a POE switch.

I am sure these exist but I cannot find anything which clearly states that is has x ports and it can be powered via one of the cables.

I see some "reverse POE" switches but AFAICT that is not the same thing.

There is no requirement for passing through the power. It is just the switch itself I need to power.

Many thanks in advance for any pointers.

Any mikrotik device will do, they all have at least one passive poe input. At least, the small units have.

For example, if you get an mikrotik hex (RB750Gr3), you just reset to "no configuration" and add all ports to bridge for just switching. Done.
You can also get one of their switches (eg: RB260GS), but availability is a problem.


HP 1820-8G can be powered via PoE on port1

--- Code: ---The 8-port Gigabit Ethernet model can be powered by an upstream Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch for environments where no line power is available.
HPE OfficeConnect 1820 8G Switch - Model number : J9979A

--- End code ---

I see several on ebay uk


8 gigabit port OK for £30, or does it need to be 5 port?

Thank you all.

I didn't realise "reverse POE" means exactly this.

The TL-RP108GE seems best for what I want.
