Curious about PoE?
PoE (Power over Ethernet) is a means of sending power to a PoE-capable device. The device, such as a VoIP phone or wireless access point, needs to be PoE capable. The switch also needs to have ports capable of PoE.
Gigabit ports are backwards compatible with standard Ethernet.
A gigabit port can still send standard 10/100mbps data over traditional Ethernet cabling.
