By 2025 it’s expected that there will be over 75 billion devices connected to networks around the world, ranging from sensors to robots. The intrinsic value of Operational Technology (OT) and Internet of Things (IoT) for buildings is data collection and how that data can help Building Occupants, Owners and Operators improve the user experience, increase operational efficiency and drive an overall better ROI from built spaces. The reliability of OT device data is highly dependent on the reliability of the device connection to the network and its power source. Lost connections can mean the loss of critical data needed for building operations. While wireless connectivity can, and will, support many of these connections, wireless is limited in practicality and long-term operational viability because these devices must be powered by batteries or a separate power cable. In this context, the ability of Ethernet wired connectivity to run simultaneous data and power over a single media, becomes a huge advantage.

While traditional 4-Pair Ethernet connectivity meets the technical performance requirements of these devices, the footprint for 4-pair may be cost prohibitive for micro-IoT devices and not easily incorporated into smaller equipment. Single Pair Ethernet with its smaller footprint and Ethernet platform can deliver reliable, simultaneous power and data to the billions of devices that will make our buildings safer, smarter and more sustainable. Single Pair Ethernet also can support up to 1000 meters, making it easier to replace the existing 2-wire systems with the same cabling design.

Primary Topics:
  • Overview of the technology and current state of standards and solution development.
  • Use cases for Single Pair Ethernet
  • Roadmap / Timelines of key components comprising the SPE ecosystem
