Power over Ethernet (PoE) is a common way to reduce installation costs and time by allowing power and data onto a single twisted-pair cable. As the ubiquitous nature of Ethernet has grown, an increasing number of items are being networked together. These new items, such as digital signage, next generation wireless access points, nurse call stations, and thin clients, have power needs beyond the existing PoE+ standards. The industry has recognized this need, and has begun to develop PoE++ equipment that will supply 51 to 71 watts. This Technology Brief highlights Panduit cabling and connectivity with both the existing PoE+ and the new higher power PoE++ standards.
