Cree, Inc. has introduced SmartCast® Power over Ethernet (PoE), an intuitively simple, scalable and open platform that enables the Internet of Things (IoT) for buildings through better light via the Cisco® Digital Ceiling framework. Cree’s SmartCast PoE embeds intelligence to make buildings more efficient and people more productive.
Cree applied its intelligent SmartCast Technology to a PoE infrastructure to solve the inherent commissioning complexities of deploying network-powered smart lighting within buildings. Cree’s SmartCast PoE works out of the box. Cree’s series of SmartCast® lights, light switches and dimmers operates with Cisco’s standards-based PoE-powered network architecture. This platform provides power and networking for the lights with a standard Ethernet cable, eliminating the need for separate data and high-voltage power connections.
