This article is intended to be a quick guide to helping you choose the best switch for your deployment. We’ve taken 5 of our most common environments and added a few descriptors. This list of places you can use a PoE switch is by no means exhaustive, but it will help you get into the “ballpark” when identifying some of the most common places and the best
PLANET is happy to announce the release of our newest 802.3bt PoE Injector. The POE-171A-60 is a single-port 10/100/1000 Mbps Type 3 device providing up to 60Watts of power and data at a distance of up to 100m.
Further, the POE-171A-60 is compatible with legacy devices, which allows greater flexibility when adding to or combining with existing networks. IT administrators
It was about this time last year that the president elect proposed a $1T infrastructure initiative.
The prospect of a much needed infrastructure overhaul got many engineering firms excited, and they began dusting off their project wish lists. A number of high-profile CEOs even joined together to form the CG/LA Blueprint 2025 infrastructure development coalition.
Their vision statement?

Cars fly past your mega-skyscraper window. Your friendly robot arrives serving your favorite martini. As the sun goes down, the lights dim and change hue for a more evening appropriate mood.
You get up and walk into your bedroom. As the light dims further behind you, your bedroom comes to life without you needing to push a single button.
This vision, once merely part of a fantastic dream enjoyed by
When you’re researching PoE switches, you’ll inevitably come to a crossroads. Do you choose managed or unmanaged switches?
The choice is really quite simple. A Managed Switch is always better.
Why? Security features for starters. They allow administrators visibility and control. But the benefits don’t stop there. Managed
PoE cable bundles generate heat due to the power transmission that occurs through the copper conductors of standard networking cables. Wiring cabinets or networking sites that do not allow for proper heat dissipation can lead to cable bundles with higher-temperature cores. Cable bundles with higher temperature
IEEE’s 802.3at Power over Ethernet (PoE) standard helps network installers connect higher powered network applications that require up to 25.5 watts of power. But a new PoE standard, 802.3bt, is promising to deliver up to 100 watts of power to powered devices.
The 802.3bt standard has been in the works since 2013 and finalization is expected to occur on 2017. Even though IEEE has yet to finalize
The Normal and the Not-so-Normal Use Cases for Power over Ethernet (PoE) That Will Make You Appreciate PoE TechnologyDelia Hernandez
Power over Ethernet (PoE) is an appealing medium for network administrators seeking to deploy Ethernet where power does not exist. These unassuming electrical components pioneer into the places where electrical cabling has not yet been installed.
PoE deployment in security industries and enterprises is quite common, but PoE is fast proving its utility in places beyond enterprises.
Power over Ethernet (PoE) can transmit power up to 100 meters. These long cables are easier to deploy than electrical cabling in locations where power is absent. Because PoE relays relatively low amounts of power, the technology presents low risks of electrical hazards.
When installing a Powered Device (PD) with a PoE-enabled Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE), it is important to take note that
