What is POE or Power over Ethernet?

Simply put POE means only a network connection is needed for power, it allows network cables carry electrical power. This saves costs and time, it also allows flexibility as you do not need to be tethered to a main power source. Safety is also a key feature as POE devices are designed to protect the equipment in a network from overload.
