PoE Without a Sweat

When transmitting power through copper conductors, there will be resistance, and this will generate heat. As more power is transmitted, more heat is generated. You can imagine that transmitting 100W will generate significantly more heat than when transmitting 15W or 30W. Heat is no friend to IP traffic on copper cabling. It weakens signal strength (attenuation) and makes IP traffic more prone to errors. More errors can cause your network to slow to a crawl and/or can possibly lead to rebooting. Berk-Tek understands the technical challenges involved with PoE and we have solutions specifically designed to solve these challenges.
