Legrand Demos PoE Lighting Installation at Cisco Live 2018 – Highlighting Cabling and Connectivity Considerations

Thursday, May 17, 2018

As part of Legrand’s Cisco Live booth, a live Power-over-Ethernet demonstration will be available. We have built a mock-office space with overhead lighting, providing a real-world implementation that visitors can witness and interact with.

We have partnered up with Platformatics and Superior Essex, both Digital Building Ecosystem members, to light up our meeting space. Platformatics is providing the lighting control, both with their PoE nodes and software, while Superior Essex has provided us with the PowerWise® 1G cable that runs from our switch to the lighting nodes.

With the new demands being placed on connectivity and cabling infrastructures, Legrand has also worked alongside Superior Essex and Fluke Networks to co-author a white paper discussing considerations for high-power PoE systems and testing methodologies.

For more information, stop by the Legrand booth, #1841, and start a discussion with us.
