Enhancing PoE Experience

The Ethernet Alliance test labs continue to identify Power over Ethernet devices failing to fully comply with IEEE 802.3 standards. Devices that don’t comply may not work as expected leading to interoperability issues over the lifetime of your PoE network. Designers and users of PoE equipment can prevent these problems and related downtime by ensuring IEEE 802.3 PoE interoperability through the Ethernet Alliance PoE Certification program.  In this webinar, experts from the program share their stories how the certification process leads to better products and more confidence in operation.
