Demo of One-Port HighPoE Midspan and Pan Tilt Zoom (PTZ) Cameras Available
at ISC West 2005

Hod Hasharon, Israel & Farmingdale, New York, April 12, 2005 - PowerDsine
Ltd (NASDAQ: PDSN), a pioneer in Power over Ethernet (PoE) solutions,
announced today the launch of the 8001 High-power PoE (HighPoE) Midspan
product. This product is a one-port model that is designed for
Ethernet-connected devices that have high-power consumption requirements
such as Pan Tilt Zoom (PTZ) network cameras as well as colour touch-screen
Voice over IP (VoIP) phones and multi-channel wireless LAN Access Points
(WLAN APs). The new 8001 midspan powers all terminals designed according to
the IEEE 802.3af PoE standard, while also supporting emerging high-power

Demonstrations of the one-port 8001 HighPoE Midspan will be available at
PowerDsine Booth# 26099 from April 6-8 during ISC West 2005 at the Sands
Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas. The single-port model complements
the existing six- and12- port versions of the 8000 HighPoE Midspan family
and offers a cost-effective solution for small enterprise environments.

We believe that the PowerDsine 8001 Midspan will reduce the time and costs
associated with installation of the related end-device because PoE
technology eliminates the need to wire additional AC outlets. For example,
IP-based surveillance cameras often need to monitor specific targets such as
doorways, data centres, parking lots and remote warehouses. In order to be
effective, these cameras often have to be installed in places that are
difficult to reach such as ceilings or exterior walls. In these and similar
places, it is unlikely to find an existing electrical outlet and it is often
costly and difficult to run electrical wires and install AC outlets.

"We learned from our resellers and distributors that end-users were
demanding more power for niche applications. Manufacturers who are in the
process of producing PTZ network cameras, IP phones and multi-channel
wireless LAN access points also inquired about high-power solution for these
terminals which consume more than the 15.4 Watts as specified in the IEEE
802.3af PoE standard," said Igal Rotem, CEO of PowerDsine. "Because our
customers are demanding high-power PoE midspan solutions, PowerDsine is
among other industry leaders that are currently committed to working with
the IEEE to explore a higher power PoE standard."

To date, the IEEE has formed a new 802.3 study group dubbed "PoEplus" to
investigate the development of a high-power PoE standard that is capable of
powering devices requiring more than 15.4 Watts of power, as specified in
the existing IEEE 802.3af PoE standard.

Samples of the single-port 8001 HighPoE Midspan are immediately available,
with general availability in July 2005.

About Power over Ethernet Technology
PoE is a technology for wired Ethernet, the most widely installed local area
network technology in use today. PoE allows the electrical power necessary
for the operation of each end-device, to be carried by data cables rather
than by separate power cords. It minimizes the number of wires that must be
used in order to install the network, resulting in lower cost, less
downtime, easier maintenance and greater installation flexibility.
