Remote Power Delivery: PoE vs. Powered Fiber – Understanding the Difference

Wednesday, May 24
8:30 - 9:30 a.m.

The IEEE PoE standard supports power delivery of nearly 100 watts to network devices over 100 meters of 4-pair category cabling. As hybrid-powered fiber cabling is deployed deeper into the network, powered fiber is increasingly utilized to provide the capability to go beyond the 100-meter distance limitation of PoE. This session will identify the similarities and key differences between PoE and powered fiber solutions and how these solutions can co-exist and complement one another.
