White Paper: Using Power over Ethernet to Reduce Network Energy Consumption

Microsemi recently published a white paper: Using Power over Ethernet to Reduce Network Energy Consumption. As you can tell from the title of the technical paper, the article is about how companies can reduce costs by using energy-efficient Power over Ethernet (PoE) midspan technology. These systems implement four-pair powering and built-in power-management capabilities while minimizing idle power consumption through the use of smaller internal power supplies.
