Power over Ethernet, or PoE, equipment and systems have been taking the networking world by storm – not just in information technology, but also in wireless access, video surveillance, access control, lighting control, and many other varied applications. The overall demand for network connectivity has been a primary driver, and using PoE provides specific advantages in terms of installation cost savings, system simplicity and flexibility, power management, and overall system reliability.

While the decision to implement the best PoE for networked systems is an easy one, a harder decision may well be how to evaluate the enormous offering of PoE equipment providers and their specific solutions.

Fortunately, PoE standards compliance is designed to ensure, to a great extent, device functionality and interoperability. This means that devices that have been tested and certified to meet PoE standards should function as described. The question then becomes how to ensure that your selection is based on the most important differences between providers, empowering you to make the best selection and purchase decisions.

The use of Power over Ethernet, or PoE, equipment and systems has been growing rapidly in recent years and shows no sign of slowing. This growth is at least in part due to three powerful trends: the explosive growth in the use of IP data transmission for a wide range of devices across all industries and markets, the increasing simplicity and flexibility of IP cabling and networking, and the improved power efficiency of intelligent IP devices.

With the support of well-proven PoE standards, these trends allow for intelligent devices to be deployed more efficiently than ever before. In fact, PoE is a popular choice for system deployments and enhancements because the use of PoE delivers four primary benefits:
