The PoE 2.5GbE multi-port magnetic modular jacks from Molex help accomplish that by supporting novel applications in various networked applications, including Wi-Fi access-points, IP-enabled security devices, office or home broadband routers, servers, switches, routers, communication peripherals and PoE devices.

Integrated magnetics in the jacks boost signal integrity, isolate DC voltage, and provide PHY chip protection via discrete magnetics. Also, the jacks are power device (PD) capable and can supply 30W to connected devices and systems in various applications. They can be upgraded to 60W for broader endpoint support.
