Ethernet Alliance noted for PoE certification program excellence

The Ethernet Alliance, a global consortium dedicated to the continued success and advancement of Ethernet technologies, has announced it had been recognized by the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) for its Power over Ethernet (PoE) Certification Program, the company said.

The IEEE-SA Conformity Assessment Award was conferred on the Ethernet Alliance during the standards body´s annual awards ceremony on December 2, 2018.

Also honored at the event was Ethernet Alliance board of directors member, David Chalupsky of Intel Corporation, who received the IEEE-SA Standards Medallion for his leadership in standards development enabling ever increasing and practical server access, including BASE-T and high speed electrical interfaces.

The IEEE-SA Conformity Assessment Award celebrates those making major contributions to the development and promotion of products conforming to IEEE standards. With the coming launch of the second generation (Gen2) of its industry PoE program, the achievement marks a timely milestone for the organization.

Providing an easy means for identifying interoperable PoE products, the Ethernet Alliance PoE Certification Program includes a public registry of products certified to the organization´s requirements.

The Ethernet Alliance is a global consortium that includes system and component vendors, industry experts, and university and government professionals who are committed to the continued success and expansion of Ethernet technology. The Ethernet Alliance takes Ethernet standards to market by supporting activities that span from incubation of new Ethernet technologies to interoperability demonstrations and education.
