IO Power Solutions AC/DC PoE Injectors

Power Solutions for a Resilient Network

IO provides professional power solutions for stable, seamless performance across varying temperatures and weather conditions.

HFCL IO PoE Injector Power Solutions

Indoor & Outdoor PoE Injectors

IO by HFCL offers two high-power Gigabit POE+ Injector units, one for indoor use and the other designed to withstand harsh outdoor environments. Both units feature essentially the same internal spec, with the exceptions being the physical characteristics and environmental limits within which they can operate. Each is available configured for either 230v AC or 48v DC.

The indoor units (HF-POE20-AC/DC-I) are housed in GI/Metallic enclosures with anti-corrosive powder coatings and are IP30 rated with an operating temperature of 0°C to 45°C, whereas the outdoor models (HF-POE20-AC/DC-O) are housed in IP67 certified ABS/PC enclosures with UV protection to ensure they can withstand the elements and operate between -5°C to 55°C.

IO P2P for Unlicensed Band Radio

Excellent Performance Over Long Distances

IO Point-to-Point Backhaul (P2P)

HFCL’s flexible cloud-managed UBR P2P and P2MP backhaul solutions deliver superb performance over long-distance applications.

IP67 certified and designed from the ground up to handle the most extreme weather conditions without compromising performance you can be confident IO’s P2P solution can be relied upon to meet your needs.  All models feature full end-to-end WPA, WPA2, and 128-bit AES PSK encryption with hardware acceleration protection ensuring data is shielded from threats and attacks.

Remote multi-site management is also a breeze via IO’s powerful and intuitive iEon EMS (Element Management System), eliminating the additional cost and complexity of traditional on-site wireless controllers.

ion4l is at the root of IO’s P2P range and is available in four main variants, three of them with an integrated dish and one as a separate radio for external antennas to extend coverage to distant areas without the need to deploy additional UBRs.

Each model can be provided with an optional Dying Gasp feature as indicated by “_d” in the model number:

ion4l2 / ion4l2_d
5GHz 700Mbps UBR with Integrated 23 dBi Dish Antenna
ion4l3 / ion4l3_d
5GHz 700Mbps UBR with Integrated 25 dBi Dish Antenna
ion4l4 / ion4l4_d

IO External Antennas

Seamless Performance and Extended Range


External Antennas for Access Points & UBR Deployments

IO provide a versatile, forward-thinking range of high-performance antennas more than capable of supporting the increasing traffic demands of today’s ever more connected world.

IO’s antenna range features two models ideal for access points and two for UBR (Unlicensed Band Radio). All feature excellent gain and interference rejection and are available in several variants suitable for a wide range of applications.

Each model has been built with a rugged yet lightweight design for easy installation and rapid deployment.

For extending the range of APs there is a tall dual-band omnidirectional antenna (HFDBV-NMOMNI-0406) for 360 degrees wireless coverage, or a dual-band sector antenna with 3 signal variants of either 60, 90 or 120 degrees.

For UBR deployments there’s the sector antenna with 60, 90 or 120-degree variants and a 2×2 MIMO dish antenna providing excellent connectivity for long distances.

All sector and dish antennas come with pole mounts and RF cables with N- Male connectors.
