MikroTik NetPower 15FR

The NetPower 15FR is an outdoor 16 ethernet ports switch with PoE output on one port. Since the device has a waterproof outdoor case, you can mount it on a tower, or in other outdoor locations.

It supports passive PoE input on 15 ports and passive PoE output on one. We have successfuly used this POE output to power a OmniTik POE 5 AC which in turn powered an SXTsq G-5acD.

Recently, we have been phasing out and avoiding installing 15FRs for new installs. The ethernet ports on this device are 100mbps max, not gigabit ethernet. As speeds increase across the network and we are installing more high speed 60GHz links, the 100mbps ports have become the limiting factor for many members. For this reason we have been removing them and replacing them with NetPower 7Rs where practical.
