An Up-Close Look at Recent PoE Legislation: Should licenses be necessary?

Free Webinar: Tuesday Dec 17, 2019 2:00 PM ET

1 BICSI CEC and 1 AVIXA RU

In this webinar:

Recent proposed state legislation would require integrators and low-voltage installers to have an electrical license to plug in Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports or pull and install PoE cable. Why is this happening?

Some people incorrectly believe that PoE is dangerous. Others believe that new technology should be handled by someone with a license. But most people already (and safely) come into contact with PoE cables every day. This webinar will look at the delivery of remote power using PoE from a safety standpoint and what can be done to mitigate legislation that could exclude certain installers from installing PoE cable.

After attending this webinar, you’ll understand:

  1. Standards and best practices for cabling infrastructure
  2. How to safely deploy PoE
  3. What are the legislation issues concerning PoE and how to best mitigate them
