The network interface card (NIC) provides connectivity to a secure fiber network while also delivering power to a PoE Powered Device (PD), such as a VoIP phone with a copper UTP interface. It provides full-duplex bandwidth capacity. Developed to support high-end users, this two-port NIC has one 1000Base-X fiber network interface port and one switched 10/100/1000Base-T port. It is designed to allow a PC to power a VoIP phone, or any other traditional copper Powered Device, over a secure fiber network. Additionally, the NIC also has the ability to provide traffic switching functions between the copper and fiber ports, even when the PC is in a sleep mode. Combining the functions of PC connectivity and VoIP phone connectivity into one device saves installation time, expense, and the space of having two devices at the desktop. When the VoIP traffic is filtered and prioritized by third-party devices like an Ethernet switch and the IP phone, this PoE NIC will pass all tagged traffic ensuring users experience a high level of quality of service.
