IEEE PoE (Power over MDI) is the only standard for running power over a network cable, consisting of the original PoE 802.3af (12.95 W), the improved "PoE+" 802.3at (25.5 W) and the latest "4PPoE" 802.3bt (71 W).
There is a large number of proprietary variants out there as well. Most of them are not interoperable and it's possible to damage the hardware when using them in ways that are not intended, even accidentally. The IEEE standards use device signatures and are carefully designed to not apply power when the end device isn't showing such a signature.
