The placement of devices such as VoIP Phones, WiFi Repeaters, Bridges and even Security IP cameras is limited only by your imagination within the 100 meter distance from the PoE source device.

BCS, a Seattle based business phone systems and network cabling company, recently published an article on the benefits of simplifying the work place through better cable management and modern, more efficient, PoE capable networking hardware.
With the wide adoption of VoIP Phones driving down costs and the commonly available feature of PoE in modern, highly efficient network equipment, it has never been easier or more affordable for business owners to adopt a VoIP / PoE setup.
The article goes on to explain that PoE or “Power Over Ethernet” provides a small power source that is sent across the same Cat5 or higher cable as the data. This cuts down on the need for an AC adapter, AC outlet and subsequent power cable for each device location. There are currently 2 standards in use today: PoE IEEE 802.3af-2003 and PoE+ IEEE 802.3at-2009. PoE allows up to 15.4 Watts of power and PoE+, also known as PoE Plus, is capable of sending 25.5 Watts of power.
Finally, the article frames the actualized benefits of the feng shui using simple cable management via PoE as being a major step towards an atmosphere of a highly motivated, efficient work environment that will ultimately increase business efficiency through productivity.
