Power over Data Link (PoDL) call for interest

The following request for agenda time for a Power over Data Link (PoDL) call for interest has been received from Dave Dwelley. It will be discussed at the IEEE 802 LMSC July 2013 Plenary meeting in Geneva, Switzerland.

If you have any questions please get in touch with either or directly.

The IEEE P802.3bp (Reduced Twisted Pair Gigabit Ethernet PHY) standard is being developed. There is a need in some applications for power delivery over the same link segment to power devices such as cameras and sensors. These powered links are expected to be widely deployed in automobiles as well as other transportation and non-transportation applications. The P802.3bp link segment and powering requirements will be substantially different than those specified in the existing Power over Ethernet Clause (Clause 33) and will require the creation of a new standard. This Call for Interest is to request the formation of a “Power over Data Lines” study group to start this effort.

The call for interest will take place during the IEEE 802.3 Opening Plenary on the afternoon of Monday 15th July. A call for interest consensus building meeting has been scheduled to occur from 6:30PM to 8:00PM on the evening of Tuesday 16th July. The vote to determine if a Study Group will be formed will take place at the IEEE 802.3 Closing Plenary on the afternoon of Thursday 18th July.
