Power over Ethernet (PoE) for both ICs and PoE Systems

Power over Ethernet devices adapt to changing environments. Easily moved and reconnected at the switch level and easily integrated into changing network configurations, PoE is plug-and-play. An entire network does not need to be brought down to add or subtract devices.

In this webinar Microchip's experts will take you through the flexibility and easy design transition of Power over Ethernet (PoE) for both ICs and PoE Systems.

Specifying Power over Ethernet brings many advantages to an installation:

  • Time and cost savings - by reducing the time and expense of having electrical power cabling installed. Network cables do not require a qualified electrician to fit them, and can be located anywhere.
  • Flexibility - without being tethered to an electrical outlet, devices such as IP cameras and wireless access points can be located wherever they are needed most, and repositioned easily if required.
  • Safety - POE delivery is intelligent, and designed to protect network equipment from overload, underpowering, or incorrect installation.
  • Reliability - POE power comes from a central and universally compatible source, rather than a collection of distributed wall adapters. It can be backed-up by an uninterruptible power supply, or controlled to easily disable or reset devices.
  • Scalability - having power available on the network means that installation and distribution of network connections is simple and effective.

Typical applications include:

  • VOIP Phones and Conference Systems
  • Wireless Access Points
  • IP Cameras
  • LED Lighting
  • Access Controls
  • Kiosks and Digital Signing
  • Wireless backhaul
  • 5G Small Cell
  • LoRa
  • LED Lighting
  • IoT Devices
