Demand for high power PoE
Applications for Power over Ethernet continue to grow as the technology and standards advance. Emerging applications that are poised to take advantage of new higher power wattage needs around the network include:
- Building infrastructure such as LED lighting
- POS systems (such as catering tills)
- Digital signage
- Higher performance wireless APs that support IEEE 802.11ax may require more than 30W
- High definition pan-tilt-zoom security cameras with heaters for harsh environments
