It has been predicted that, within a decade, the Internet of Things (IoT) will grow to encompass billions or even trillions of wireless devices and sensors. However, that growth will depend to some degree on the ability of their manufacturers to drive down the cost of each of these devices. At the same time, ho

Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) is a technology used in wired Ethernet local area networks (LANs) that delivers power over the same cable that delivers the Ethernet data. This reduces the number of cables that must be laid to install a network and power the devices connected to it. It also makes it easier to maintain an
