Cabling Performance and Next-Generation PoE


In this webinar:

With the forthcoming PoE++ Type 3 sending 49W of power to a network device, and PoE++ Type 4 sending 96W, the twisted-pair cabling infrastructure supporting that transmission will carry significantly higher wattages than ever before. With these higher power levels come new considerations such as heat rise and corresponding cable-bundle sizes.In the connectivity realm, the possibility of arcing or sparking upon unplugging of a PoE-powered device demands consideration.

This presentation discusses some of the real-world implications of deploying higher-wattage PoE on twisted-pair cabling. It pays particular attention to the physical and performance characteristics of cable and/or connectivity that affect the infrastructure’s ability to successfully deliver PoE.
