The EA PoE Certification Program will improve the user experience by minimizing interoperability issues and market confusion.

Participants in the program will create a PoE ecosystem of products that have been tested against the Ethernet Alliance PoE Certification Test Plan.  Users can confidently identify products that will work together, either via the EA Certified Mark or the online registry listing of certified products.

This will help companies that have their products certified to reduce support issues and associated costs.
