Possibilities have expanded for Power over Ethernet (PoE) with the development of 802.3bt PoE.
The main benefit of PoE is that it provides power to communication devices where no AC power source is available. So with no power lines to run, PoE saves substantially on installation costs and makes configuration much easier because the power source is within the data cables. More than one million devices are powered by PoE using the same cables that transmit Ethernet data.
The standard version of PoE, 802.3at, however, peaks at 25.5 Watts.This is insufficient for many applications, and more wattage is often required.
The development of the 802.3bt standard will lift those power limitations with capabilities up to 49 Watts. This is because 802.3bt PoE uses all four twisted pairs in Cat 5 and Cat 6 Ethernet cables, therefore providing more power. 802.3bt will be standardized with support for 10GBASE-T (10 Gbps Ethernet) and will be backward compatible with previous 802.3 versions.
PoE has evolved into a key technology for providing power and data simultaneously. With 802.3bt PoE offering double, and possibly triple the power, new applications could extend to include 100 million devices worldwide and countless other possibilities.
Typical PoE Injector and PoE Splitter Applications
With the new Jabra Panacast teleconferencing cameras, you can now have an extended reach of USB 3.0 connections, going up to 100m over a single CAT6a or CAT7 cable using Icron’s USB 3-2-1 Raven extender
Yamaha, a leading solution provider for audio and video conferencing has teamed up with Newnex, a key developer of USB long range solutions, to provide interoperability between Yamaha's CS-700 Video Sound Collaboration Systems with Newnew's FireNEX™-uLINK USB 3.0 Active Cable up to 20m (65 ft.).
The HDMI 2.0 EDID Emulator and the DisplayPort 1.2 EDID Emulator from NTI are our newest piece of tech. The emulators copy the EDID of the desired display and connect directly to the source to ensure that the EDID is not lost in connections between devices such as switches, splitters, and extenders.
