Up until now, cable performance in wireless networks has been measured in terms of information capacity: How much data can the cable transmit? How quickly? How reliably? As more wireless devices use Power over Ethernet (PoE) for power and network access, another cable-performance parameter now matters: power delivery efficiency (PDE).
A new LAN deployment strategy called "direct connect" can maximize PDE by effectively connecting equipment to end devices with a channel made entirely of horizontal cabling. The direct-connect strategy requires attachment of a plug and testing in the field.
Wireless networks rely heavily on wire and cabling – without it, our networks won't be prepared to handle IoT, growing numbers of connected devices and other changes headed our way. Attend this one hour webinar to make sure your network (and your cabling system) is ready:
