Power over Ethernet (PoE)
Microsemi has been pioneering in the Power over Ethernet field since 1999, with the invention of Power over LAN™. Microsemi has the broadest Power over Ethernet product line covering PoE IC’s that send power (PSE), receive power (PD), and complete systems that inject Power over Ethernet in an intelligent way (Midspans).
Microsemi products support IEEE802.3af-2003, IEEE802.3at-2009 in both 30W and 60W versions, Energy Efficient Power over Ethernet and the 95W Power over HDBaseT™ (PoH) standard.
Microsemi's PoE PSE product line includes IC's and Modules that can be used to build PoE switches and routers(Endspans) from 1 to 96 ports in a single power management system.
Our PoE PD IC's provide the most energy efficient and cost effective solutions to build PD's consuming up to 95W over a single Category 5/5E/6/6A/7 cable.
Microsemi's PowerDsine® Midspans can be used in indoor and outdoor deployments, with advanced network management and Energy Efficient PoE models available.
