New Product Awards 2018 – PoE Texas GAT-USBC (Media & Communications, Other Media and Communication Product)

  • PoE Texas GAT-USBC.
Just as information technology has become fully integrated in most people’s lives, it has also become a fundamental part of the worship experience. The ability to power a wide variety of personal and audio-visual devices is essential. The GAT -USBC combines power over Ethernet with the USB-C standard to maximize flexibility in worship space, experience and presentation. 

How does it do that? 

The GAT-USBC is the first PoE+ to USB-C driver to use USB-C to support devices from manufacturers including Apple, Google, and Samsung standardizing on USB Type-C (USB-C) with the new Power Delivery (PD) protocol.

Why is USB Type-C Power Delivery?

With 10 times the power capacity of earlier USB protocols, USB-C powers modern electronics with the capacity to charge a phone in 15 minutes or simultaneously charge a laptop and power an external monitor. Phones, cameras, Wi-Fi access points, laptops and tablets utilize the USB-C PD standard.

 Why Power over Ethernet?

PoE significantly lowers the cost of adopting USB-C by eliminating the need for new electrical infrastructure.
