Networks are continuously expanding, growing more versatile and complex. As more devices, such as wireless access points (WAPs), building automation systems and security cameras, are added to the network, the cabling infrastructure supporting the network must grow more robust as well. Power over Ethernet (PoE) enables you to use structured cabling to provide both power and data to many of these devices. Since the original PoE standard was developed in 2003, the standards have evolved significantly to provide support for higher power PoE solutions.
Will traditional cabling design strategies work for higher watt PoE applications? How about new cable types and new outlets? How are standards being rewritten to address temperature rise and heat dissipation? Can your existing infrastructure support 802.3bt?
These questions are just the tip of the iceberg - there is a lot you need to consider when designing your network (or updates to your network).
In our upcoming webinar, CommScope will help you answer these questions, and you'll learn design and cabling strategies and recommendations for PoE application support. It's on Thursday, September 26th at 2PM EST, and you can register by clicking here!
