CHINO, Calif., Oct. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Power over Ethernet, or PoE, technology of the future may be the next step for energy efficiency and power conservation in green commercial locations. The technology is designed for wired local area networks and provides power and data to network devices with a single cable for connection. The Power over Ethernet technology from Planet Technology removes the requirement for additional power or data cabling, which gives network administrators not only a solution that saves space, but also a surety for simple installation.

In 2003, the first PoE standard was ratified by the IEEE. This standard ensures electrical current stays separate from the data signal as they enter and exit through the cable.

What makes Power over Ethernet even better is that the technology allows wireless devices, such as access points, IP phones, IP-based terminal, security cameras, and IP surveillance cameras to obtain power and data over existing Ethernet systems. PoE cables have the ability to carry 25 watts of power for long distances using wire that is currently not being utilized for data transmission.  

Power over Ethernet also gives users the ability to install network devices and operate them with efficiency in environments that do not have existing power infrastructures. What makes PoE an ideal choice is that costs associated with installation is affordable and the technology offers less downtime compared to standard wiring solutions.

Users are discovering that Power over Ethernet technology, including Planet Technology PoE injectors, allows wireless units and computer appliances to receive the high power these units require. In addition, PoE technology provides data transmission over existing LAN and CAT5 cables. The standard provides users with many options to design affordable and efficient networks.
