I have to monitor some IDF room across the office that only have fiber connection to the server room so I cannot use A-Link and/or direct sensor connection to Netbotz200.
Instead installing a netbook 200/250 in each IDF I'm searching a PoE ( or also not PoE ) T/H sensor SNMP capable and fully compatible with DCE ( So I can read values and create thresholds )
Does anybody know what product I can buy ?

We had a similar requirement in the past where cust just wanted TH and the low end NetBotz unit was too expensive. We sourced a couple of Ethernet UTP (10/100 I think) SNMP TH sensors and developed the DCE DDF. I think it's still being used. If fibre is mandatory, you could add a media converter, or is there a switch on the end of the fibre?. I think there was a POE version as well. I cannot vouch for the product today but at least you get an idea. I searched Mr Google for "snmp ethernet temp humidty sensor". I think we used...
I'm not endorsing these, just giving you ideas.
Depending on how many IDFs you need to monitor, and where they are, you should be careful about rollout, physical install, sensor placement, IP addressing, threshold setting etc. In any event you will need to dev/test (unless someone advises a bullet proof solution) to make sure you get what you want
