White Paper: The Role of PoE in the Modern Connected Enterprise

Power over Ethernet has become the new power grid in buildings. With new standards that allow up to 99W to be delivered, PoE has grown up and is ready to power connected devices throughout the office building, school, and hospital. Panduit’s latest ebook, The Role of PoE in the Modern Connected Enterprise, explores infrastructure considerations and emerging solutions for extending the distance of PoE delivery.

Transition Networks Starts Work on Smart City IoT Project for New York City DoT

Transition Networks will work with New York City’s transportation agency to connect, power and manage traffic data via its hardened TAA-compliant, Power-over-Ethernet (PoE+) switches. This application brings intelligent transportation infrastructure citywide and reinforces the relevance and timeliness of Transition Networks’ strategy of developing smart city Internet of Things (IoT) solutions.

Omnitron launches 60W and 90W fiber-to-PoE media converters per 802.3bt standard

Omnitron has launched its IEEE802.3bt OmniConverter GHPoEBT/S fiber to 60 and 90 Watts PoE Power Sourcing (PSE) Media Converters product line. Utilizing the new 802.3bt standard, Omnitron’s GHPoEBT/S fiber to PoE media converter and power injector meet network demands where fiber data reach, high PoE power, and interoperability is required and expected. The OmniConverter GHPoEBT/S is an unmanaged multi-port media-converter/injector with different fiber, and 10M/100M/1G RJ45 copper port, models available. Units are available with one or two 60 and 90 Watts power ports; models also support the 802.3af (15 Watts) and 802.3at (30 Watts) PD devices. Units with two fiber ports can be daisy chained or deployed in a redundant fiber topology for critical applications.

Belden’s Digital Electricity Cables reach distances and wattages that PoE can’t

Belden’s Digital Electricity Cables are available in copper for power-only applications, and in hybrid copper/fiber constructions to transmit power and data over long distances in a single cable run.
The transmit up to 20 times more power or 20 times more distance than PoE: up to 2,000W or up to 2km reach in indoor and outdoor applications. Digital Electricity Cables support Internet of Things (IoT) and convergence in venues such as airport terminals, convention centers, hospitals, high-rise hotels, stadiums and office towers.

Panduit’s Uniboot Push-Pull Fiber Patch Cord enables tool-less polarity change

Panduit’s Uniboot Push-Pull Fiber Patch Cord supports tool-less, in-the-field polarity change and provides remarkable insertion loss performance, easy field moves/adds/changes, and a low profile to reduce cable-volume density. The cord’s compact dimensions can save up to 40% of termination space compared to conventional connectors. The patch cords are available in singlemode and multimode versions.
