Power Over Ethernet Interoperability

by: Sanjaya Maniktala


Abstract: This is a complete guide to transmitting electrical power and data over Ethernet cables. It explains how to safely transmit DC power over an existing data network cabling structure so that separate AC electrical wiring is not needed to power up devices connected to the network. With a focus on cost-effective unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cables, this book provides proven methods for designing reliable Power over Ethernet (PoE) equipment and ensuring that it functions effectively. Details on the IEEE 802.3af/at standards and how various devices can operate from PoE are also contained in this practical resource.
