Phillips Launches Energy-Efficient PoE-Powered Light Bulbs

The next generation light bulb is here. The latest innovation released by Philips features connected light bulbs powered by Ethernet. These light bulbs will effectively replace standard wiring with Ethernet and utilizes Ethernet to power the LED bulbs. In addition, the bulbs efficiently pass information to and from each lamp. This allows businesses and homes to save on energy, and ensures that business owners reduce power usage. With the ability of each LED light bulb to collect information from various sensors, these bulbs have the ability to report back collected information in order to determine the best temperature. For example, a motion sensor has the ability to count the number of employees in a specified area. A thermometer then sends back the current temperature, allowing managers to monitor any part of the office. Managers have the ability to adjust their lighting and heating options effectively. This can be done simply via a app on a smartphone in order to save money on a business utility bill. In order to operate this new innovation, businesses do need to replace their standard cabling with Ethernet. Although the replacement will cost managers quite a bit, Philips notes there is a 50 percent reduction in the cost to install Power over Ethernet over standard wiring. With the changes in technology, this new light bulb alternative is an innovative option businesses may want to consider.led_lightbulbs_PoEVersa Technology | Versatek's Ethernet Extenders | PoE Devices and more

Technology Innovation

Innovation is critical to the success of many organizations, but even more so, technology innovation is imperative for companies seeking to differentiate in strategy. A recent survey by Cisco notes that 84 percent of business leaders say technology innovation is a truly important step for strategic differentiation. Based on the survey, business leaders say investments made by IT leaders and business leaders are not always closely tied, but in order to truly present even greater innovation, business and IT leaders must work as a team. Here there are some interesting findings gathered by Versa Technology.Receive a Complementary ConsultationCisco’s survey addressed almost 2,000 business leaders about how their business and IT decisions are actually closely related. The survey determined that out of the businesses surveyed, 70 percent of leaders said their priorities are closely aligned with the IT. Almost 70 percent of leaders also noted that IT will impact less than half of the budget for business technology in the next year. This information determines an important fact: two-thirds of all companies can align business and IT spending together in order to ensure an even greater innovative impact.board-453758_1280Since businesses tend to spend more in technology compared to IT’s, the opportunity is increasing even more. More than 50 percent of businesses say their budget on technology will increase 25 percent next year. Over 10 percent say their technology budgets will increase even further and expect budget to change exponentially depending on country and location.There are a few simple steps for businesses and IT’s to take in order to ensure that innovation and impact continues to grow. The first step is to really identify various issues at every level and then to utilize technology to simplify the process. This can reduce business incidents and ensure that technologies run even smoother. Businesses can also bring together encourage innovation by bringing together technology. This allows business leaders to offer new services to guests with changes in technology and even allows administrators to save costs. Combining technologies can also increase stability and performance, providing both users and administrators even greater service. Lastly, businesses can also increase enhanced applications in order to allow leaders to meet business goals. Innovative networks bring a plethora of opportunities and allow for connectivity to a wide range of devices and applications.With the start of the New Year, businesses ought to consider various innovative strategies to take goals forward.

The end device will have even more power with this innovative new IEEE 802.3bt standard. The technology provides various methods for devices to offer PoE power above current standards by permitting power through a standard Ethernet cable over all four pairs. The IEEE 802.3bt task force is also seeking to ensure that PoE with 10GBASE-T is also standardized.Receive a Complementary ConsultationThe new IEEE 802.3bt standard is the third released PoE standard. In the future, the standard’s task force will consider increasing the power to the limit of 100 W or in a reasonable margin. With every change of the PoE standard, various issues must be considered, including link length and energy dissipation.With even more power to end devices, Power over Ethernet can power an even greater variety of applications. With both power and data deliverance through a single cable, administrators can simply install and relocate devices by simply moving standard CAT5/6 cables. This cuts down costs associated with installation and costs for electricians to manually move AC sources to another location.Currently, vendors are releasing equipment that is non-standardized with the ability to double the increased power under the existing 2009 IEEE 802.3at standard. Even before the implementation of the brand new 802.3bt standard, Power over Ethernet will have the ability to power on applications that are high-volume.
