Re: What is POE+?

Power Over Ethernet Plus (POE+) is governed by standards defined in IEEE 802.3at.  Covers the capability to deliver data and high power to internet appliances over CAT-5 Ethernet cables.  POE+ is specified to deliver an average of 26W at a nominal voltage of 48v downstream to the Ethernet device (aka. PD: Powered Device).  The Ethernet equipment inserting the power onto the CAT-5 cable upstream (aka. PSE:  Power Sourcing Equipment) is also governed by the IEEE 802.3at spec.
