Powering the Future: Revolutionizing LED Lighting with PoE

The latest developments in LED lighting systems are reshaping enterprise networks and creating a new breed of IoT-enabled smart buildings. When paired with sensors and Wi-Fi, intelligent PoE luminaires help streamline building automation and create smarter buildings with better efficiency, sustainability, and comfort at lower costs.

Network-powered luminaires allow you to leverage existing LAN infrastructures and offer remote management capabilities, resulting in lower installation and operating costs. PoE enables a flexible solution that eliminates the need for AC wiring while allowing IT managers to control and optimize power utilization as part of network management.

The recently launched PDS-208G fanless PoE switch is designed for digital ceiling applications. A unique offering, it is differentiated from enterprise switches by enabling lighting fixtures and other Ethernet terminals to efficiently receive power and data over standard Ethernet. The simple yet sophisticated digital ceiling switch provides quiet and energy-efficient operation that is ideal for enterprise IoT. Beyond lighting, the Microsemi digital ceiling switch supports multiple building systems—sensors, Wi-Fi access points, IP surveillance cameras, and HVAC system controls can all be deployed, monitored, and controlled for optimum results and maximum cost savings.

According to the research firm MarketsandMarkets, the smart lighting market is expected to reach a total value of $19.47 billion by 2022, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 27.1 percent. The market size is expected to reach 1.27 billion units by 2022, at a CAGR of 71.3 percent. With energy-efficient lighting systems likely to be the major factor driving the market, Microsemi’s PDS-208G is ideally suited to capitalize on this growing demand.
