Power over Ethernet (PoE) and PoE+ enable power and data to run over the same cable, eliminating the need for additional wiring installations and providing businesses and facilities with a simple and convenient option for powering devices. PoE helps you save money on additional cabling material, labor and administration. It also offers faster deployment, particularly to devices like wireless access points (WAPs) and security cameras, which may be located in far-off locations. Additionally, PoE centralizes power into one location, support new smart building controls.
Smart building controls adapt to user behavior and interaction of devices through the Internet of Things (IoT). Smart buildings can bring greater efficiencies and lower energy costs through this adaptation. They rely on PoE to support lighting systems, HVAC control, digital signage, emergency systems and more.
Berk-Tek Leviton Technologies offers solutions ready for implementation in smart buildings. Their PoE-optimized systems support a range of applications, from thermostats and clocks to energy-efficient lighting. They meet the need for higher bandwidth and power, while limiting temperature rise in large cable bundles. They're also designed and tested to be compliant with all current IEEE PoE standards, Power over HDBaseT™, and IEC 60512-99-001, and they are tested to deliver 100-watt PoE and higher. Berk-Tek and Leviton have come together to deliver the integrated and complete high-power PoE solution you require.
