Re: cat 5 and poe support

Binoy,

The differences between plain Cat5 and CAT5E are in the HF-characteristics. Power over Ethernet utilizes LF signalling and DC conductivity. Hence, there is no problem in using PoE with CAT5 cabling. I know quite a few customers who have been using this combination for a long time.

Regards,

Leo
