Attending BICSI Fall? Don’t miss these upcoming speaking sessions from Ethernet Alliance, TIA SPEC and Ethernet Alliance members discussing the latest Power over Ethernet (PoE) and Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) trends, opportunities and use cases in highlighted sessions below:

September 27 – 4 pm PT

“Trends, Opportunities and Realities Behind PoE Technology and Applications”

  • George Zimmerman – CME Consulting – Manhattan Beach, California, USA
  • Jason Potterf – Cisco – San Jose, California, USA
  • Jason Bautista – CommScope – Shakopee, Minnesota, USA
  • Paul Vanderlaan – UL Solutions – Melville, New York, USA

Power over Ethernet (PoE)-enabled port and device shipments are projected to reach 2 billion (USD) by 2025. Ethernet is diversifying into a host of application spaces, from the enterprise, to consumer, to emerging markets such as automotive and industrial applications. With new PoE solutions being introduced across the ecosystem, users are seeking more robust interoperability.

Attendees will hear the latest updates from industry experts and global consortium, Ethernet Alliance thought leaders during an interactive panel discussion on all things Power over Ethernet.

September 27 – 2:30 pm PT

“Single-Pair Ethernet Roadmap: Products, Testing, Standards and Use Cases”

  • Bob Voss – Panduit Corporation – Tinley Park, Illinois, USA
  • Todd Harpel, RCDD – Berk-Tek, a Leviton Company – New Holland, Pennsylvania, USA
  • Steve Cowles, RCDD, NTS – AEM – St. Cloud, Florida, USA

To achieve the goals for smart buildings, migrating to an IP-based, Ethernet network is essential. To maximize the benefits of smart infrastructure, all systems must communicate on a common network, able to transmit data from a variety of devices all the way to the cloud. Ethernet has long been ubiquitous in IT networks and Single Pair Ethernet offers the mechanism to extend the same features and performance to OT networks and edge applications, drawing on a stable, well-developed ecosystem with a full security suite, that’s easier to maintain than a host of different legacy networks, easier to upgrade to higher speeds and allows data collected from edge devices to be captured and used in real time.

This presentation examines how SPE helps Smart Buildings achieve the next level of performance in terms of edge-to-cloud connectivity, delivering power to devices, lowering maintenance, improving security, and providing a migration path.
