Farmingdale, NY & Hod Hasharon, Israel - February 22, 2005 - PowerDsine Ltd.
(NASDAQ: PDSN), a pioneer in Power over Ethernet (PoE) solutions, has
announced that the Toshiba IK-WB02A IP Camera has become the 160th network
device to be certified as PoE compliant. PowerDsine has operated a testing
program for third party products to verify their PoE compliance since 1998.
Amongst the many products already certified are IP Video cameras and other
network devices such as IP phones, wireless hubs, and security access
devices.

As a founding member of the IEEE 802.3af task force, PowerDsine has been a
driving force behind the PoE standard, which was ratified in June 2003, as
well as a key mover in the latest IEEE 802.3 study group examining the need
to add support for higher power network devices.
Toshiba's certification highlights the growing number of IP security devices
that are becoming PoE compliant, to deliver remote power, via standard
Ethernet cabling, to security devices such as surveillance cameras; often
located in inaccessible places. Commenting on the importance of the
certification, Network Camera Sales Manager at Toshiba America Information
Systems, Inc. Joe Cook said: "Toshiba understands the importance of
standards and certifications as these mean that the end-user customer can
feel confident that the Toshiba network camera will perform to specification
and will easily integrate into their existing PoE network. So it is
important for the Toshiba IK-WB02A network camera to be certified as PoE
compliant."

Igal Rotem, CEO of PowerDsine adds: "We're delighted to add another
illustrious name to the list of companies with PoE certified devices. We
believe that the IP Security market is one where PoE offers a compelling
proposition. The recent move toward a high power standard also opens up the
prospect of extending PoE support to a host of additional higher power
network devices including Pan Tilt Zoom (PTZ) network cameras, giving even
greater momentum to the growth of this market within the IP Security
sector."

About Power over Ethernet Technology

PoE is a technology for wired Ethernet, the most widely installed local area
network technology in use today. PoE allows the electrical power necessary
for the operation of each end-device, to be carried by data cables rather
than by separate power cords. It minimises the number of wires that must be
used in order to install the network, resulting in lower cost, less
downtime, easier maintenance and greater installation flexibility.
PoE also potentially reduces the cost of installing end devices such as IP
phones, network security cameras and wireless LAN access points. Because the
network switches also can deliver power through the standard Ethernet
infrastructure, the need to connect each end terminal to separate electrical
wires and install additional AC power outlets is eliminated. Also, used
together with a single central back-up power-supply, PoE can provide
customers with uninterruptible power for critical applications such as IP
(Internet protocol) phones, security cameras, entry loggers and other
powered data terminals.
