    The 4 Types of PoE

    When Power over Ethernet (PoE) was first standardised in 2003 nobody could have predicted how important and globally dynamic its market would be today. Under the stimulus of IP Convergence and the Internet of Things a wide variety of end devices were introduced into the network. And all require power. With time, the need for more power forced standardisation body IEEE to ratify higher power levels of PoE. This post looks at the 4 PoE Types and the power each delivers to the end device.

    Fighting global energy poverty

    Today, over one billion people worldwide do not have access to electricity, mainly in Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. This is a staggering figure to those countries where electricity is a commodity, taken for granted every time they turn on a light switch. But the consequences of energy poverty are far more significant than living in darkness. Education, social welfare, and health are all affected placing additional barriers to economic and social development for those who are in greatest need.
