From Competitors to Collaborators: Seven Rival Firms Come Together to Accelerate PoE Lighting and Technology Adoption in Buildings

Low voltage, smart building design and PoE Lighting firms form PoE Consortium

Seven smart-building manufacturers are joining forces to bring more attention to the value of Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) lighting and technology. All the companies are collaborating to create an industry organization known as the PoE Consortium. Their collective mission to educate stakeholders on the sustainable benefits of PoE over traditional high-voltage electrical infrastructure also highlights the key strategic value of the organization: more interoperability for the advancing smart building.

The PoE Consortium maintains an online hub of resources for education and training. This core of industry expertise enables anyone looking to install PoE technology to feel confident in their decision to take advantage in the sustainability, savings, and advanced amenities Power over Ethernet technology offers. On the site today are explainer articles, project calculators and case studies.  Soon, the site will include training and qualification courses for installers and integrators to ensure the quality of PoE enabled projects.

We are very excited to be a part of the PoE Consortium and look forward to pushing PoE and our community forward with our collaborators.
