    Multi-port PoE injector

    I'm currently waving wireless network proposals at my manager in an effort to get a whole-site managed wireless network system in to replace our 'hotspots' that exist at the moment. One thing I want to include is PoE injectors.

    As our site has a half a dozen cabinets, I would prefer not to have half a dozen single port PoE injectors in each cabinet. So, I am looking for a 4 - 6 port midspan 802.3af power injector device of some form. I've found ones that are 12 port and 24 port but these are too expensive and have too many ports (we're never going to want that many PoE ports).

    So, can anyone point me in the direction of a suitable device?

    @localzuk: How did you get on with that PoE injector and would you recommend CMS? I ask because I'm looking for a multi port injector myself and I can only find single port types from my usual suppliers.

    Our wireless roll-out was put on hold (joy) and I've only just started ordering part of it. So, I haven't as yet ordered the PoE injector! Will probably look at buying it around April time myself now.

    Curses, only just found this thread. I was looking at replacing a mess of cables plugged in to multiple single PoE injectors a few months ago, but needed a fanless (24-port or so) PoE switch as this is to go in an office where people work. Only needed 3 or four PoE ports, though, so one of those multi-port injectors would have done nicely. Does anyone have a current, working link to the product on CMS' website (the URL given simply takes me to their home page), or does anyone know the make / model number or similar?

    That's a switch, not just an injector.

    The one linked to above is a hub worse than a switch would be!

    Not CMS but Camberley Computers who supplied our Ruckus kit

    Camberley Computers - Wireless : VoIP : PoE : Networking

    @ jamesreedersmith: I'm not sure if this injector is a hub or a switch as the Planet website Welcome to PLANET Technology Corporation. shows this device as having 4 data cables from a switch.
