PoE Smart Building

Why Power over Ethernet will Power the Smart Building of The Future

You know Power over Ethernet as the cabling technology used in information technology that transmits both data and power using a standard Ethernet cable. PoE gives users the ability to deploy powered devices at any location, regardless if electrical outlets are present. It is this characteristic that makes Ethernet the ideal default cabling medium that will connect the smart building

How the Unanticipated Evolution of PoE Prevents Market Saturation

Why is Power over Ethernet (PoE) far from reaching market saturation levels?

Power over Ethernet has evolved since its inception in 2002. IEEE has introduced PoE standards with increasingly higher power outputs to account for the evolving use-case scenarios for PoE. But even though the technology has been around for over a decade, PoE has not quite yet achieved market saturation. PoE use-cases



Double Power with IEEE 802.3bt Power over Ethernet

Over a million end devices are now powered with Power over Ethernet. The technology features simply deployment in applications that are high volume, including wireless access points and IP phones. Although the technology sends power to a device, the 25.5W capability causes some limitations when needed for a wide variety of applications.
