Could be fine for a tower-top DC+fiber fed injector(+sync)-switch. Same concept as the UBNT edge thing. Consider that something like this would need a 10G uplink if you're going to be powering and timing a 450m cluster. You're probably going to want at least 500Mbps to each sector. So only a 1G pipe up the tower isn't thinking towards the future. Something I think a product like this would need is an integrated voltage regulator. And wasn't something similar kicked around in the past? Instead of a switch, make it a multi port injector+sync with media conversion. A strand or pair per radio. Or even CWDM mux.

It would be awesome if you could ever develop products with switches inside, I know you have a (Cisco?) preference but other's dont.

I would have purchased lots. I hate that I have to use a separate switch so we moved away from packetflux for new deployments.

    I'm assuming you mean includes switch+poe.

    I'm in the process of working on something specificaly for the
    450i/450m with 5 ports and sync hardware all in one box (+1 SFP
    port), mainly designed for tower top mounting.   Not far enough
    along to say when it will ship, or even if it's ever going to see
    the light of day.

    Any other solution you look at, you should make sure that whatever
    solution you find will support at least 70W per port, and all 4
    pairs.  Neither the 450i or 450m really care about polarity,
    unless you're doing sync, and then only on the 450i since the 450m
    does the new cambium sync only.

    If you can live with separate poe box, of course the packetflux
    powerinjector+sync powers 450m's really well.  There will be a
    version which does medusa sync out sometime soon, it's a sure
    thing, just we don't know timing yet.

        Good morning,

        Looking for an all in one, but reliable, power source for 4 -
        450m aps per tower.

        I have heard netonix a few times but I have also heard about
        some issues with these devices and their support not being
        that great.
