Ashford 5: – Week 4 – Discussion 1
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
VoIP and PoE
Voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) has become a standard way to route calls to remote locations for businesses that have nationwide locations and global operations. Power over Ethernet (PoE) is also a standard component of today’s business networks.
Discuss why these two elements are found together in business networks. Identify and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the PoE technology. Provide examples to support your discussion. Your initial response should be a minimum of 300 words in length.
Guided response: Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts. Has the post appropriately described the uses and purpose of PoE? In what way do you agree or disagree with the discussion about the advantages and disadvantages of PoE technology? What other uses could your classmates have identified for the PoE technology? Your replies should be between 100 and 150 words in length and add depth and insight to the discussion.
