Happy New Year Guys,

I bought a new Zipabox 2 and I'd like to understand how to power it up with a PoE switch.

Hi Lars,

PoE doesn't work because it's an option and I didn't understand yet how to switch this option on.

Hi

I would like to inform you that PoE is available for zipabox2 as extra option which must be specified when order it.

SIM slot works for zipabox2 under 3G module.

SIM slot on Zipatile2 doesn't work yet.

Hello Dino,

if you're not thinking to upgrade Zipabox2 to PoE in the next future, it will be a pity.

One of the reason why I bought Zipabox2 was PoE availability as optional, as you can read in the attached file and on your website, https://www.zipato.com/product/zipabox2

Why did you give such a wrong information to all of your customers?

Hi Roberto

PoE for ZipaBox2 is available but it should be specify at order because it requries an additional hw part inside of ZipaBox2 to enable PoE.

In practice users usually ask for PoE on ZipaTile2 and we didn't have any request so far for ZipaBox2 with PoE.

Sorry for my wrong previous answer, so I'm going to edit it.

Well, I'd rather an embedded PoE, I'm not interested in complicating the installation using too much accessories to power the Zipabox2.
