Hello Peplink Team,
Several of the newer models (i.e. EPX, SDX, MDX) coming out from Peplink have the SD-WAN configurable “8x GE PoE Module” allowing you to define the ports as either WAN or LAN. In LAN mode we can utilise the PoE from the device, yet in WAN mode this is not offered, WHY? There are several products, such as the Pepwave Device Connector and other manufacturers of PtP Links that can be powered by PoE using the standards of 802.3af/at.
We are currently attempting to demo several of the three models where PoE on WAN would be beneficial. We are getting around this by using a Peplink SD-Switch and assigning a dedicated VLANs onto Paired ports (say 7&8, 5&6, 3&4), the odd # is being connected to the device’s router WAN port while the even # port connects to the WAN device (i.e. Device Connector & PtP Link).
Also missing from InControl2 is the visual port status and option to configure the ports of the “8x GE PoE Module” & the “4x SFP+ Module”, can we please see this feature added for all Peplink devices into InControl2 (relevant previous thread LAN port status and log messages)
This request relates to our previous post and the reply from @Lai
Happy to Help,
