Power over Ethernet (POE) technology sends 10/100/1000 Mbps of data and 15W, 30W, 60W, and up to 90W of power budget to devices over Cat5e and Cat6 Ethernet cables for a maximum distance of 100m.


PoE technology relies on the IEEE 802.3af and 802.3at standards, which are set by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and govern how networking equipment should operate in order to promote interoperability between devices.
