Solution
The Power-over-Ethernet blades released for the DFE product line are:
  • 7H4385-49 (Platinum line)
  • 7G4285-49 (Platinum line)
  • 7G4205-72 (Platinum line)
  • 4H4285-49 (Gold line)
  • 4G4285-49 (Gold line)
  • 4G4205-72 (Gold line)

PoE blades may be inserted into any of the same chassis types used by non-PoE blades (5275) and will power up and generally function normally. However, if PoE is to be provided to attached clients, there are other considerations. 

PoE-destined power may be provided to these blades in one of two ways:
  1. When using the 7C105-P chassis; over the backplane from 1-4 installed N-POE-1200W power units.

  2. When using any chassis; via each blade's front panel DC connector (the DFE-POE-CBL-2M power cable required for each blade must be purchased separately), from the N-POE Power Shelf and 1-4 installed N-POE-1200W power units.
      Note: The 7G4205-72 and 4G4205-72 by design do not have a front panel DC connector, due to lack of space. For that reason they are restricted to the 7C105-P chassis if their POE capabilities are required.
