Silicon Labs PoE products will help enable 5G and its small cells
Published: 17 March 2020 - Christian Lynn
Silicon Labs has introduced a comprehensive Power over Ethernet (PoE) portfolio that reduces the cost and complexity of adding 90W PoE to power sourcing equipment (PSE) and powered devices (PD). The new 90W PoE portfolio complies with the IEEE 802.3bt standard, which more than doubles standard PoE power and expands the capabilities of wireless access points and IoT wireless gateways. The portfolio’s higher power capabilities help make PoE-powered 5G small cells and digital buildings a practical reality.
“Silicon Labs’ 802.3bt PoE portfolio delivers higher power, integration and advanced features to help developers simplify their system designs, while meeting stringent power, size and cost budgets,” said Brian Mirkin, vice president and general manager of power products at Silicon Labs: “Our new PoE portfolio spans both ends of the Ethernet cable, from 15W to 90W, giving developers flexible options for a wide range of PSE and PD applications.”
