PoE is redefining how security professionals design and deploy systems. Rather than using the standard type of power supplies, integrators are increasingly employing PoE network switches or incorporating PoE midspan devices that inject power into an Ethernet cable after it leaves the switch and before it reaches the network device.
When developing IP surveillance installations, many security system integrators and IP-Surveillance network designers have turned to PoE technology, and for good reason. Using PoE cameras and switches eliminates the need for separate power and data cables, thus simplifying installation, increasing flexibility for camera locations and saving money.
IT professionals are adopting the latest technologies to meet increasing bandwidth demands, create higher and faster performing networks and increase availability.
