Power Over Ethernet (PoE)

As technology evolves, so does the quantity and variety of components that make up an effective telecommunications network. The network switch is one component that will be important to the seamless running of any network. A normal network switch or a POE powered switch are the two major types of switches available.

Gulfstream’s POE switches help you make an educated and informed decision that best meets your device's needs.

What is Power Over Ethernet (PoE) Powered Switch?

When a gadget connects to a network, it traditionally requires two inputs: a power wire and a network cable. PoE (Power over Ethernet) is a technology that allows an Ethernet cable to deliver power.

PoE is beneficial to devices and networks that demand power while still transmitting data. As businesses take advantage of the Internet of Things, the number of devices that can be managed remotely and require data is growing at an exponential rate (IoT). By 2025, the number of IoT devices connected globally is estimated to reach 75 billion!

The value of PoE technology in most networking infrastructures will only grow as the number of network-connected devices grows.
