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?
Smart Cities: How PoE and IoT Intersect to Form IoP
Our future cities will be super-smart, powered by
