Discussions about new technology are usually loaded with hyperbole. Sometimes even minor development that barely make a mark get hyped as “the next best thing.” Power over Ethernet or (PoE) warrants all the talk, attention and more. Its recent development and push to market make it a baby on the tech landscape. The coupling using twisted pair cables over an Ethernet connection is changing access to power and data as we know it.
The relatively young innovation has already had an enormous impact. It powers major structures globally – from hotels, hospitals, schools and even stadiums. Superior Essex Communications is leading the way with the PowerWise® PoE solution at forefront of the change. The initial product development was just the beginning. From its inception, this product suite was built for a major impact. We can begin with its origins alone. It is a form of innovation that meets the challenges facing consumers and builders for professionals in data and design.
PowerWise® is more than just cabling. It is the basis for the Superior Essex Digital Ecosystem. This is a body of organizations that partner to build solutions in a broad range of industries from hardware, software, construction, building automation, and more.
It is critical to Cisco’s Digital Building Solution. It is the center of PoE technology pivotal to the development of new structures and the modernization of old ones. The Internet of Things (IoT) benefit greatly from PowerWise® as building systems become increasingly connected through centralized lighting, building automation, and security cameras on a single IP platform. Business analysts predict the growth of PoE to expand significantly in the next six years.
“With global expenditure likely to cross $2 trillion in 2019, "digital transformation" and, consequently, "digital maturity" are the current buzzwords in the tech space. However, digital transformation is much more than simply phasing out legacy systems, adopting agile methodologies and moving to API-driven environments.”
