Implementing Power over Ethernet with 3Com Network Jacks

Power over Ethernet (PoE) provides major benefits to corporate networks saving both time and costs. And perhaps these benefits are never realized more than when using this revolutionary technology with 3Com® Network Jacks. These unique "in the wall" port-expansion switches can leverage PoE's capability to power devices at the edge of the network over the existing LAN cabling.

This guide introduces the concepts of PoE and the standard-based approach to PoE known as IEEE 802.3af. It is designed to help you determine whether using PoE with 3Com Network Jacks makes strategic sense for your Ethernet network. Plus, it provides insights into why 3Com is committed to providing IEEE 802.3af-compatible solutions, how to install them, and how to best extend this functionality to your existing network infrastructure.
