CentreCOM GS980EM Series

Gigabit PoE++ Layer 3 Lite Managed Switches

Flexible Power over Ethernet switches with capabilities that support IoT device connectivity in today’s converged business environments.


  • Enable today’s converged business networks with flexible PoE to connect and power devices such as high-resolution security cameras, wireless APs, IP phones, and more
  • Flexible deployment of network edge switches and IoT devices with PoE pass-through that powers both the edge switch and connected end-points
  • Provide PoE capacity and resilience with triple external PSUs available for distribution switches while also simplifying UPS power redundancy of the network
  • Extend network layout with IoT devices able to be connected and powered up to 200 meters from the PoE distribution source
  • Reduce costs and automate network and device management with Allied Telesis Autonomous Management Framework™ Plus (AMF Plus). Deploy the GS980EM Series as AMF Plus edge nodes

Key Features

  • AlliedWare Plus™ feature-rich operating system
  • 90W PoE++ per port (GS980EM/10H) for high power devices, or for powering the GS980EM/11PT and its connected devices with PoE pass-through
  • 30W PoE+ per port (GS980EM/11PT) for connecting and powering end devices
  • Active Fiber Monitoring™ (AFM) secures uplink connectivity
  • Fanless design for high-reliability and silent operation
  • DIN rail or rack-mount supports flexible deployment
