Category Cable Solutions for High-Power PoE Applications

Posted by Julie Clark

Power over Ethernet technology (PoE) has been quietly gaining traction in the market ever since its launch in 2003, especially in Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephony & IP Surveillance camera. Today’s PoE landscape has effectively split into two broad categories: standards compliant 24.5 W 802.3at and nonstandard applications with higher power delivery capabilities such as Cisco’s UPoE 60 W and HDBaseT’s 100 W. These non-standard applications create a significant paradigm shift in what was thought to be possible with PoE. Power delivery through 1000 mA per pair and beyond is looming on the horizon and steps will be necessary to ensure continued compatibility with this rapidly changing environment.

Apr 25, 2016 1:00:00 PM

When you're designing, testing, or troubleshooting a MPO-based system in either a 10G or 40G environment, you're going to have to deal with polarity and gender.
