Improving the Power over Ethernet experience

Multi-vendor interoperability is the hallmark of Ethernet. Some may talk about Ethernet’s plug-and-play capability, or low cost, but the simple reality is that neither of these happens without multi-vendor interoperability.

The IEEE 802.3 Ethernet Working Group is known for its ability to develop a specification that multiple companies can read, interpret, and develop products independently of each other. The result? When you plug it all together—it works. It just doesn’t happen by magic. It is the result of hard work and due diligence that is invested in the development of a rock-solid standard.
