The IEEE 802.3 working group created the "PoE Plus" study group in November 2004 to evaluate the technical and economic feasibility of providing increased power to devices over Ethernet, and approved the creation of the IEEE P802.3at task force in July 2005. The task force has been working with key vendors and customers to deliver a solution for providing up to 24W of power using Category 5 cables.
The PoE/PoE Plus subcommittee plans to hold a plugfest and webinar on PoE Plus in 2008.
