Test Considerations for PoE Deployment

Use form below to download this white paper.

Enterprises are fast embracing the digital network infrastructure otherwise known as the smart building, in an effort to realize cost savings in utilities, greener footprints, and convergence across infrastructure support disciplines. As a result, the need for power and bandwidth is rapidly increasing, driving the adoption of technologies such as PoE (Power over Ethernet) and Multi-Gig Ethernet over copper cabling, not to mention traditional cable testing to certify the physical infrastructure meets IEEE, ANSI and TIA standards. Deploying these sophisticated systems can be a daunting task, which is why it is important to understand testing considerations. This paper provides a standards update across all technologies as well as examples of testing configuration, tests that should be run, gotchas to watch out for, and how to interpret test results.
