Joe Williams has been with Versa Technology for over ten years, currently serving as Director of Distributor Sales. Before that, he spent another ten years as Director of Sales in both an Ethernet-based company that leveraged existing copper infrastructure and a private label telecom application developer. We recently sat down to discuss the trends he’s seeing in Power over Ethernet (PoE) devices
The IT network is the lifeblood of any business, and Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology is saving companies a bundle while adding a single-cable solution for powering smart devices cross-platform. PoE adapts easily and scales to fit your implementation now, while also adjusting to fit new configurations as your needs morph down the road. Deploying an additional IP phone, camera or wireless access
What is PoE Lighting Technology?
Power over Ethernet (PoE) lighting systems are smart lighting. They improve control over light quality, lower energy bills, and substantially lengthen bulb life. A PoE lighting platform and its fixtures use Ethernet cables to power lights (luminaires) and transmit data between the luminaire and the control software. They may

As homeowners and building managers move further into the Internet of Things (IoT), they are experiencing an unprecedented cadence in new PoE device connection. The role of Power over Ethernet (PoE) for device integration is expanding in everyday work and home life, making it easier to provide comfort and convenience in
Every day, industries are embracing digital technology to provide customer engagement and convenience, and the hospitality industry is no exception. Travel, hospitality and leisure (THL) companies use data analytics programs to gather data on preferences and behaviors to target promotions to the right customers at the right price. And it’s working. “Technology is woven into our lives. We use
With so much focus on smart home and business technologies these days, it’s clear Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology will continue to drive smart device development. Every year we see new ways to make life more efficient and save money.
Automated retail, and especially, frictionless checkout, is the future of retail shopping. No one wants long checkout lines and retailers are looking for ways to cut costs and compete with Amazon.
Without closing process gaps that inhibit customer journeys, it’s becoming increasingly difficult for brick and mortar stores to compete with their eCommerce counterparts effectively. The long-term
The ongoing expansion of PoE-driven IoT networks worldwide comes with the addition of more and more power-hungry devices. Unfortunately, a PoE standard like IEEE 802.3at is only good enough for low-power equipment. It supplies up to 30W at the source over Ethernet, limiting the amount of power available for smart networks
In TechTarget’s IT Priorities Survey (2019), about 70% of respondents (IT experts) said they are adopting digital transformation. Nearly 50% of them said they were already undertaking formal projects toward digitization.
Also, the respondents answered questions about their intended budgetary allocations to achieve technological transformation. According to the survey, digitization budgets,
The internet connected everyone and now we’re connecting everything to the internet. Our ability to power low-voltage smart devices wirelessly is enabling Big Data to get even bigger — from smart homes to smart buildings to smart cities — But the big question is: What’s next? Does the target get bigger or is the next target ourselves?
