802.3bt the Promise for Higher Power PoE
(Tuesday, March 03, 2015)

Today more than one million end devices are powered by Power over Ethernet (PoE).
One of the major benefits of PoE is that communications equipment such as IP phones and access points can be located where no AC power source is present or could not be installed due to the location of the equipment.
One limitation to the current standardized version of PoE is that the amount of power it provides to a device peaks at 25.5 Watts. This has limited PoE's penetration into other applications requiring more power.
To address the need for higher power PoE the IEEE has proposed a new standard, 802.3bt, which promises to double or even triple the power output of the current standard, 802.3at. Additionally the 802.3bt standard is looking to standardize PoE with 10Gbase-T.
L-com plans to support this new high powered version of PoE with innovative 802.3bt products and solutions when the standard becomes ratified.
While the details are being sorted out we continue to support 802.3af and 802.3at applications with a wide range of products that help you save time and money with your wired and wireless networking installations.
