You already know PoE, huh … but do you already know that there are not many types of PoE yet? let’s discuss it! PoE or Power over Ethernet is a network technology that allows an ethernet cable to be energized. So that data traffic and electricity can run on one ethernet cable, usually found in switch devices for connection needs and power source access points.
As technology develops, PoE is divided into 3 types, namely: PoE, PoE + and UPoE or commonly known as PoE ++. The difference is in the maximum number of power issued, the maximum PoE power issued is 15.4 watts, while PoE + is 30 watts and UPoE is 60 watts.
Especially for UPoE, UPoE is not a standard PoE technology issued by the IEEE, but rather a technology created by Cisco. By combining two PoE + into one port, so that the maximum power output reaches 60 watts.
Well, now you know that there are many types of PoE, don’t forget to share this info if you find it useful.
