PowerPath
PowerPath
The PowerPath product line builds on the foundation of the EtherPath family of Ethernet Switches by adding support for the IEEE 802.3af specification for Power over Ethernet (PoE). This enhancement to the standard Ethernet deployments allows low-voltage power to be carried down the same CAT5 cabling that currently supports data traffic. The significance of PoE is just beginning to take root in office telephony solutions where traditional phones can be migrated to VoIP capable handsets and powered and networked using PoE capable Ethernet switches. Power Over Ethernet also has widespread applications in wireless, point-of-sales, security, and building controls systems and networks where intelligent devices will benefit from the ease of installing open cable to supply both data and power needs.
