PoE is a technology of transferring power and data using a LAN cable. It allows safe and reliable power transmission15W with 48Vfor telecom applications over existing Cat5, Cat5e and Cat6 cables. It can be used to power IP phones, WLAN access points, network cameras and various other network terminals in the allowed power range of 13W, as measured by the powered device side. PoE is also known as power-over-LAN and is based on the IEEE 802.3af standard.

More PoE equipment continues to emerge due to the ease-of-use of existing standard Cat5 cable infrastructures. Hence, no modification or tampering with existing Ethernet infrastructures is needed.
