The perfect combination of PoE and USB-C provides a stable, fast and safe solution for smart life
The Proliferation and Enhancement of PoE Standards, Characteristics and Advantages of USB-C Interface
Most switches in the market have adopted PoE technology, evolving from the initial PoE standard to PoE+ and PoE++, with power outputs increasing from 15W to 30W and up to 90W.
Covering a broader range of device needs, PoE has gradually become the preferred technology for device power supply and network transmission.
The introduction of the USB-C interface signifies a revolution in connectivity technology. Compared to traditional USB interfaces, USB-C offers a smaller form factor, reversible plug and play, higher power output, and faster data transfer speeds, making it the preferred interface for many electronic products on the market.
Its widespread application in mobile devices, computers, cameras, and other fields has made data transfer and power supply more convenient, laying a solid foundation for the integration of PoE and USB-C.
Technical Integration of PoE and USB-C:
Power Supply Method: PoE achieves power transmission through Ethernet cables, while the USB-C interface supports higher power output. Combining these two technologies provides devices with a more robust power supply capability, suitable for devices with various power consumption needs.
Data Transfer: The high-speed data transfer feature of the USB-C interface complements the stability of PoE. Through the fusion of PoE and USB-C, devices can enjoy efficient power supply and fast data transfer simultaneously, offering users a smoother user experience.
Application Scenarios: The combination of PoE and USB-C becomes particularly crucial in scenarios such as smart video conferencing, appointment scheduling, smart homes, and remote offices. Devices no longer require intricate power management, simultaneously achieving efficient data transfer, providing users with a more convenient and efficient solution.
To align with trends and meet market demands, we have integrated PoE and USB-C, developing and launching a series of patented products that achieve PoE to USB-C/Lightning conversion, simultaneously supporting charging and network transmission, catering to diverse device and application needs.
