Power over Ethernet, or PoE, is an increasingly popular way to deliver both power and data over existing Ethernet cable, thus freeing applications from the constraint of AC-power proximity. As the number PoE solutions has grown so has the applications’ appetite for power. A new proprietary standard, LTPoE++™, satisfies this hunger by extending the PoE and PoE+ specifications to 90W of PD delivered power. LTPoE++ also dramatically reduces engineering complexity in power sourcing equipment (PSEs) and powered devices (PDs) when compared to other power expansion solutions. Plug-and-play simplicity and safe, robust power delivery are hallmarks of LTPoE++. The capabilities of this standard expand the field of Ethernet-powered applications by several orders of magnitude, enabling entirely new classes of PDs, such as power-hungry picocells, base stations or heaters for pan-tilt-zoom cameras.
