Draka White Paper “Good Prospects For PoE”

Game changer technology faces increasing market acceptance

BU Multimedia Solutions (BU MMS) of Prysmian Group provides a white paper that shows advantages of growing Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) infrastruc­tures in building tech­nology. PoE networks in building systems, businesses and residen­tial buildings are more energy-efficient, sustainable, cost-effective, secure and easier to control. In this re­gard, office, hospitality, healthcare and education are emerging as the four most promising market segments for immediate PoE innovation. Each of these industries faces rapidly changing market realities, especially as the pandemic continues. Draka summarizes in this white paper good prospects for PoE, the enormous potential of this technology and submits suitable cabling solutions by focusing on Cat.7A, Cat.8.2 and Cat.7 long reach cables in AWG 22 which offer maximum PoE efficiency.

Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) infrastruc­tures are well on their way to becoming a dominant technology. They combine data communication and power supply via a single Ethernet cable. The range of appli­cations for PoE is wide. In the next five to ten years, PoE will continue to establish itself strongly thanks to new trends, PoE lighting and DC-grid technology are the most relevant to consider. Draka´s white paper outlines several important aspects in connection with PoE like intelligent building management applications, main drivers and possibilities, DC grids, substitute for operational technology, components and standards, influence on the cabling, increase of efficiency and heat dissipation, reduction of power loss and application of AWG 22 copper cables.
