PoE Certification


Ethernet Alliance is excited to announce the launch of the Power over Ethernet (PoE) Certification program. PoE technology enables the delivery of power to IP network devices via existing Ethernet cables, reducing the need for additional cabling, saving time and money, simplifying network installation, and improving energy management. Enabling swift and easy recognition of interoperable products designed to available IEEE 802.3 PoE standards, the Ethernet Alliance Certification Program program will elevate the user experience by minimizing market confusion between standards-based and proprietary PoE solutions.


With total PoE-enabled port and device shipments projected to reach nearly 1 billion by 2021, the Ethernet Alliance’s PoE certification program is expected to attract strong interest from Ethernet ecosystem stakeholders.
