What is

Power-over-Ethernet is the cabling technology that defines the digital era. By transmitting power and data over a single Ethernet cable, PoE gives you the power to optimize, customize and connect your environment in order to meet the unique demands of your enterprise.

Why is Power-over-Ethernet
in demand?

Power-over-Ethernet gives you what you need to get what you want: a converged power and data network that allows you to create an efficient, dynamic environment that's customizable and easy to manage.


Make your space the way you like it. By combining building systems onto a single network, you have control of how your building systems operate and how space looks and feels, so that you can create a more productive, pleasing environment for you and your tenants.


Save time. Save money. Save resources. With up to 97% energy efficiency, you save money by reducing power loss and overall energy consumption. Because all your power and data is transmitted over a single cable, you no longer need those extra power cables or the integrators to install them, making your installations faster and less costly.


Power-over-Ethernet brings all of your devices and systems together on a single network, boosting operational efficiency, security and interoperability of your networked devices, and making it simpler and easier to manage your space.
