One unfortunate side effect to the ever-growing number of Internet-ready high-speed devices is that they become power-hungry, and traditional power sources, or even Power-over-Ethernet, cannot supply enough power budget to keep everything online. Many devices now entering the market outright require PoE/PoE+ connections for full functionality.
The NetVanta 1131 is a Redundant and Extended Power Supply meant to supplement the power-serving functions of other ADTRAN products and systems while at the same time provide redundant power. It can provide power to up to three separate 1500 or 1600 series NetVanta switches, providing up to 370W to each as needed.
It also features an entirely plug-and-play design with no configuration needed, and only takes up 1/2 of a 1 RU server rack, allowing two to be installed side-by-side. It also includes dual AC circuit support.
