Web seminar discusses cabling for next-generation Power over Ethernet

Standards, test procedures, and cabling performance levels will be reviewed in this online next-generation Power over Ethernet discussion.

In a web seminar on September 15, UL will reveal observations it has made based on its fact-finding investigation of sending higher power over LAN cables.

On Thursday, September 10 Cabling Installation & Maintenance will host a web seminar titled “Cabling for Next-Generation Power over Ethernet.” The event, scheduled to be approximately one hour in duration, will include presentations covering several aspects of next-generation PoE as well as the physical-layer infrastructure supporting it.

When describing the seminar, Cabling Installation & Maintenance said, “Power over Ethernet has been a widely used enabling technology in networks for more than a decade. As its functionality became realized and capitalized upon, users desired the ability to power more network devices via PoE. The ‘PoE Plus’ standard, IEEE 802.3at-2009, increased the amount of power that could be delivered via PoE. Now a more-capable version, 802.3bt, is under development. Along with PoE’s increased capability have come a wider range of network devices that PoE can power, and also a need for closer examination of the cabling infrastructure in place for these PoE-powered devices. This webcast seminar examines several of the technological issues associated with next-generation Power over Ethernet.”

The September 10 seminar will include the following three presentations.

  • PoE Standards Overview—Delivered by David Tanis, director of technical education services with CommScope
  • Can Your Handheld Tester Determine PoE-Readiness?—Delivered by Steve O’Hara, product manager with Fluke Networks
  • Cabling Performance and Next-Generation PoE—Delivered by Stephane Bourgeois, director of technology strategy for enterprise networking with Belden

The seminar will include an interactive question-and-answer session with the speakers. After its live broadcast on September 10, the seminar will be available for on-demand viewing for six months. Individuals who attend the seminar in its entirety, live or on-demand, will be eligible to receive one continuing education credit toward BICSI’s ICT professional credentials.
