Microchip Power Over Ethernet (PoE) switches, Midspans and Injectors offer industry leading solutions for any PoE situation. Their PoE system portfolio enables delivery of up to 95 watts of flexible and reliable power over Ethernet to WLAN access points, VoIP phones, IP cameras, thin/zero clients and other Ethernet devices. Microchip is an innovator and thought leader in PoE technology and systems, as well as a major source of 802.3af, 802.3at and HDBaseT standards.
It presents lots of advantages including consolidating cables, saving on the cost of additional power sockets, repurposing existing cable networks, and simple, safe installation.

PoE without changing existing cable infrastructure
It presents exciting possibilities as all sorts of endpoint devices including Internet Protocol (IP) telephones, wireless LAN access points, IP cameras, digital displays, and thin clients can be powered over standard category 5, or better Ethernet cabling without modification to existing infrastructure.
As trends like the Internet of Things (IoT) take hold, PoE technology will become an increasingly important and efficient means of connecting a host of devices. Consequently, markets as diverse as education, retail, finance, and transport are now turning to PoE as they develop their networks.
Microchip’s PoE Midspan switches were one of the first solutions available to power Ethernet devices over existing Ethernet infrastructure. Now Microchip continues leadership in the PoE category with environmentally friendly devices, and comprehensive accessories that extend the reach of its PoE products, mount PoE Midspans, switches and hubs, test links for the presence of PoE, and even deploy non-PoE devices using PoE.
