MA-INJ-6 Meraki Multigigabit 802.3bt Power over Ethernet Injector

    MA-INJ-6 Reliable, standards-compliant power for your Meraki devices


    MA-INJ-6 provides increased flexibility, reduced installation time and cost. One of the main constraints when designing your wireless network is the availability of power. Running power cabling is also a primary cost driver of wireless installations. The Meraki Multigigabit PoE injector allows delivery of both data and power to a Meraki access point over a single Ethernet cable, allowing deployment of devices exactly where they are needed to provide the best wireless coverage at a much lower installation cost.

    The Meraki Multigigabit 802.3bt PoE Injector MA-INJ-6 provides fully-compliant 802.3bt detection, with disconnect, short-circuit and overload protection. This ensures that only 802.3bt, 802.3at and 802.3af devices receive power and non-compliant devices are not accidentally damaged.

    Using this injector, it is possible to power the latest generation of Wifi-6, 6E and future WiFi-7 devices that require 802.3bt power delivered via 10G Multigigabit interfaces, as well as providing backward compatibility with legacy 802.11n devices with traditional 802.3af power. Regardless of the deployment scenario, powering Meraki devices with Multigigabit 802.3bt Power over Ethernet is a flexible and low-cost method to simplify the installation process while ensuring that network design is not compromised by power availability limitations.
