UL’s Taiwan facility provides PoE safety and performance testing services
Hong Kong, February 26, 2021 – UL, a global safety science leader, has received approval from the Ethernet Alliance to conduct EA Powering over Ethernet (PoE) certification testing in UL’s Taipei laboratory. UL’s EA PoE Certification program helps power sourcing equipment (PSE) and powered devices (PDs) manufacturers demonstrate their compliance with IEEE 802.3 Standards by providing certification testing approved by Ethernet Alliance relating to the performance and interoperability attributes of their products.
PoE allows devices to provide and utilize power over communication cables. PoE is used by PSE, such as switches and midspans, to provide power to PDs including wireless access points, phones, cameras, speakers, LED lighting, and a variety of other edge and remote devices.
Eric Bulington, director of global business development for UL’s Wire & Cable division, said, “Supporting the EA PoE Certification program is a natural extension of UL’s safety and performance testing services for the telecommunications industry. We look forward to working with the Ethernet Alliance and leveraging our scientific expertise to help them continue to build a strong ecosystem of compliant and interoperable PoE devices.”
