PoE Technology: Streamlining Network Installations

Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology is revolutionizing network infrastructures by enabling the delivery of both power and data through a single Ethernet cable. This innovation simplifies the installation of various devices, including:

  • Wireless LAN Access Points, 5G small cells, and point-to-point radios for wireless networks.
  • IP cameras and access control systems for security networks.
  • Lighting controls and automation sensors in smart buildings.
  • Patient monitoring systems and medical devices in healthcare.
  • Point-of-Sale (POS) terminals and digital signage in retail.

The flexibility of PoE is highlighted by its broad utilization in diverse fields. It resolves critical networking hurdles by offering a dependable power supply, accommodating growing data demands, allowing for remote management of power, and providing systems that are both flexible and scalable. Additionally, PoE contributes to energy conservation and supports swift, cost-effective deployment.

Innovative PoE Solutions by Microchip

Microchip’s PoE solutions cater to the growing demand for higher power and speed, as well as the need to operate in various environments, all while reducing operational costs and accelerating deployment. Microchip stands out as a leader in the industry as the sole provider of a full range of PoE products, including PoE Powered Device (PD) ICs, PoE Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) ICs, PoE midspans/injectors and PoE switches, and test equipment.

Microchip’s PSE ICs are integrated into switches, wireless routers, and other networking devices, providing efficient and convenient power delivery.
