Berk-Tek Webinar: High-PoE Success Without a Sweat


The Internet of Everything is driving MORE bandwidth, MORE wireless, and MORE PoE. The popularity of PoE has soared over the last 10 years primarily due to its cost effectiveness. As we connect more devices to the internet, those hard wire connections will likely connect devices eligible to be powered via next generation PoE. Therefore, the expectation is that PoE's popularity will continue to grow as advances are made in the amount of power made available, and the efficiency in which that power is delivered. However, as power delivery goes up, so does the amount of heat generated, and the potential for problems with IP networks. 

Topics to be discussed include:

  • How PoE works
  • Update to the newPoE standard 802.3bt currently under development.
    • Goals of the standard
    • Expected completion
    • How much more power
  • How much hear generated from initial testing
    • Describe test set-up
    • Test results
  • What does this mean for you?
    • Recommendations
