Power Over Ethernet (POE) Explained by Veracity

Tuesday, December 16th, 2008

Power Over Ethernet brings some great additional benefits to the application POE experts Veracityof IP security devices such as network cameras.

Essentially, you can power the camera (or other network device) via the ethernet data cable:

  • a single cost-effective network cable to each device
  • safe low-voltage supply
  • easily extend your network
  • no need for skilled electrical installation labour
  • a single device POE mid-span extension
  • multiple devices via a POE switch
  • the ability to ‘reach’ 100m or more from your existing network
  • 802.3 POE standards allow common solutions for many devices
  • even devices that do not have POE built-in can be used with POE supplies (by use of an Active Splitter at the device end)

We take a lot of calls about the use of POE with IP CCTV and are aware that people find some of the concepts a bit tricky.

Veracity have just produced some really helpful white papers to explain power over ethernet technology and its application:

“Power Without the Struggle” – the benefits of POE technology and how to take full advantage of them …

“POE Explained” – POE concepts through to the latest 802.3at ‘POE Plus’ solutions …

Veracity’s OUTREACH & OUTSOURCE solutions enable you to extend POE beyond 100m.
