The Advantages of Single Pair Ethernet
Learn about the key market drivers and standards shaping the development of single pair Ethernet technology
With the growth of the internet of things (IoT), machine-to-machine communications, building automation sensors and other emerging communication technologies, there is greater demand for connectivity that can deliver both power and data over longer distances to support these applications. One of the most anticipated technologies to address these trends is Single Pair Ethernet (SPE), which combines reliable, economical, lightweight and space-efficient single pair cabling with Ethernet’s non-proprietary protocols for greater interoperability.
This white paper provides an overview of SPE technology and it’s applications, including:
- Target market segments
- SPE cabling standards
- How SPE coexists with 4-pair Ethernet
- Advantages versus Fieldbus and wireless
