("Delphi") today announced the availability of "Outdoor Power over Ethernet (PoE) a Fair Weather Friend", a white paper to assist Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) owners and managers in understanding the details and trade-offs of PoE technology as it relates to Order Confirmation Systems (OCS) and other outdoor digital displays.

"Power over Ethernet has recently been suggested as a way to reduce the installation cost for outdoor Order Confirmation Systems (OCS)," said Mark DiCamillo, Director of Product Management for Delphi Display Systems. "The goal of this white paper is to help QSR managers and owners better understand the details of this technology and the trade-offs it requires for outdoor display use."

The "Outdoor Power over Ethernet (PoE) a Fair Weather Friend" white paper provides a history of PoE and trade-offs in using this technology to power outdoor video displays. The paper's goal is to provide QSR managers and owners with the data they need to make informed decisions when equipping their stores, including a discussion of:

· PoE and PoE+ IEEE specifications

· Non-Standard PoE implementation

· Environmental specifications and power requirements for outdoor video displays

· Trade-offs for using non-standard PoE

· Side-by-Side comparison of power delivery technologies

· Recommended uses of PoE technology

Outdoor digital displays have become an important tool to improve order accuracy and speed-of-service at drive-thru Quick Service Restaurants. These displays must function day in and day out often in harsh environments. Understanding the tradeoffs of PoE before installation provides franchise owners with valuable knowledge that may save them both money and downtime. This new white paper gives QSR managers the tools they need to make the right choice for this equipment.
