The New IEEE 802.3bt Compliant 100W per port 24-Port PoE5 Tester by Reach Technology

The New IEEE 802.3bt Compliant 100W per port 24-Port PoE5 Tester by Reach Technology

Why the PoE5 Tester will help IT managers transition networking equipment to support the new IEEE 802.3bt compliant higher-powered Type 4 PoE.

On September 27, 2018, the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) ratified their latest PoE standard. This new 4 pair, high powered IEEE 802.3bt Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) distribution technology has now reached a stunning power level of 100W to enable the next generation of intelligent devices.

Fiber Optic | Maximizing Speed and Distance in PoE Networking

In a previous article, Versa discussed hybrid fiber-and-copper blended cabling and the power-over-fiber cabling options that are in development. These solutions have their place in network deployments, but like anything that is specialized can be costly to purchase.

In this article, we will look at reasons for deploying fiber in segments of an installation, and why

Sensing City Strategies and Versa’s VX-VEB160G4 (V2) 300Mbps Ethernet Extender Kit

Memory fails as to who actually coined the phrase, but living in a smart home will eventually feel like living inside of a robot. The flow of life, work, and travel will become so tailored that we might begin to wonder how those who lived in earlier times survived.

Imagine how much easier life would have been for Ben Franklin. “Alexa, dost thou know when thunder

Forward-Looking Cable Infrastructure and SMART Building for the Future

Forward-Looking Cable Infrastructure and SMART Building for The Future

If you happened to jump on the Amazon site this past weekend, you might have noticed something new. Amazon has started to roll out their Alexa compatible ecosystem. The next stage in the Internet of Things (IoT) apparently is not more connectivity to the Internet, but the ability of devices to talk to one another. One interesting addition to this somewhat predictable

Why 4G LTE Gateway Is Still A Win, And Will Be For Sometime To Come

Why 4G LTE Gateway Is Still A Win, And Will Be For Sometime To Come

We hear a lot about 5G these days. Currently 5G is or is about to go live in major cities around the U.S: such as, Houston, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Phoenix, and Washington D.C. Still others will go live in early 2019. It all depends upon your provider and location. In some ways, 5G is still a ways from becoming a fully-realized technology but it’s definitely on its way.

What is 10GBASE-T and Why Is This Technology So Important?

What is 10GBASE-T and Why Is This Technology So Important?

10GBASE-T is a type of Ethernet signaling providing speeds over twisted-pair cabling that go beyond 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps) for distances up to 100 meters.

This IEEE 802.3an® standard can reach 2.5 and 5 Gbps over Cat5e and Cat6 cabling.  Depending upon the network infrastructure, signals can potentially reach new speeds of up to 10 Gbps. The recent
