I took some pictures of the inside of a CRS328 and a CRS112. It seems that it's perfectly possible to modify the CRS328 to a solution with backup power on 24 and 48V There is a 24V psu for the board, There is a 2nd 24V / 48V psu for the POE part. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B8uP6lMFhyXcL...

Re: CCR 1009-7G-1C-1S+ is safe powering on PoE

sometimes It's not safe to use POE on a CCR1009, and newer gigabit devices. If you have a long cable and a low starting voltage (running on batteries or 12V) then you will blow the POE port due to the higher amps it will use on low voltages. even the new devices have problems like the HAP AC, if you...

Before i had never problems, what you need to do, to get mac connection possible on wine, is adding a default gateway in you static address configuration.

Re: How do you fix a broken greentelfth fiber optics line

For FTTH the equipment is not so expensive , i did buy my splicer fot 1700 euro. ex tax (Easy splicer)

if you want to play with fiber you can also buy some cheap chinese fiber cutter and use Quick connectors.

for multimode this works great, for single mode i only recommend this for a quick fix.

Don't use POE for the CRS1009!

If the voltage is lower than 24V then the CCR will use to much current and POE port will fry.
