ABSTRACT
There is tremendous worldwide interest in power over Ethernet (PoE), and the rate of product announcements is accelerating. End uses vary from Internet Protocol phones and wireless access points to industrial controls and musical instruments. While the fundamental technology is not new, the catalyst for the PoE excitement has been standardization under the IEEE. Standards provide a foundation for companies to develop products to a known, fixed set of specifications, and they provide a controlled mechanism for change with consideration from a wide variety of viewpoints. This article will discuss why the success of the PoE hinges on attention to details.
