VSS is the PoE input-power return side. It is the reference for the PoE interface circuits, and has a current-limited hotswap switch that connects it to RTN. VSS is clamped to a diode drop above RTN by the hotswap switch. A local VSS reference plane should be used to connect the input components and the VSS pin.
