Emerging technologies, such as Power over Ethernet (PoE), are pivoting to meet our business needs, including working from home.
 
In this episode of B2B Tech Talk, D-Link field engineer, Michael Friends, explains how PoE works and how we’ll soon be able to leverage it from home.
 

In this episode, we discuss:

  • How Power over Ethernet (PoE) works
  • How PoE offers value to customers
  • How PoE serves people working from home
"You'll be able to power your lights or your clock or many other appliances in the future. Being a low voltage technology, it's very exciting." — Michael Friends


Why Power over Ethernet (PoE)?

There are numerous benefits to having PoE sized for your business, home, or from-home business.
 
  1. PoE can transfer electrical power along data lines using standard land cabling.
  2. PoE can communicate with any appliance (think refrigerator, lamps, desktops, etc.).
  3. Standard PoE is low voltage.
  4. As long as the Power Supply Equipment (PSE) has an Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS), there will be no downtime if the power goes out.
"You can have reliable power by using PoE." — Michael Friends
 

How to get PoE

Although it’s low voltage, PoE is still an emerging technology. Therefore, PoE will need to be sized by a professional.
 
Fortunately, the knowledgeable engineers at D-Link can help you set up PoE for your business or home. Plus, they’ll be able to help you troubleshoot any future issues.
