What's next for the future of PoE?
For more than a decade, Power over Ethernet (PoE) has provided organizations with a simple and convenient option for powering devices such as IP phones and low-power cameras. Now, as technology continues to evolve, the structured cabling infrastructure needs to support an increasingly diverse and power-hungry set of devices.
It’s clear that the developing PoE ecosystem will continue to grow through new applications. The challenge to future network infrastructures, especially cabling, is this:
How can IP traffic be isolated and protected from the additional heat and noise that will be generated from more than 3X the power that is currently available?
This paper covers:
- The new codes and standards recently released
- The evolution of PoE
- The impact of higher power on cabling
