OmniConverter GPoE/S & GPoE+/S

Gigabit Media Converter Power over Ethernet (PoE/PoE+)

The OmniConverter GPoE/S and GPoE+/S are multi-port media converters that convert 10/100/1000BASE-T copper to 1000BASE-X or 100BASE-FX fiber and support Power-over-Ethernet (PoE and PoE+). Classified as Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE), they can provide power to one or two Powered Devices (PDs) using standard UTP cables that carry the Ethernet data.

The OmniConverter GPoE/S and GPoE+/S are multi-port media converters that convert 10/100/1000BASE-T copper to 1000BASE-X or 100BASE-FX fiber and support Power-over-Ethernet (PoE and PoE+). Classified as Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE), they can provide power to one or two Powered Devices (PDs) using standard UTP cables that carry the Ethernet data. The OmniConverter functions as a PoE mini-switch, and supports a variety of port configurations are available, including single or dual RJ-45 and SFP ports.

OmniConverter PoE media converters provide network distance extension with fiber cabling, and function as PoE injectors that enable powering devices such as IP-phones, surveillance cameras and wireless access points with Power over Ethernet (PoE).

OmniConverter media converters are available in two power levels. GPoE/S models support PoE (IEEE 802.3af) and provide 15.40W of power per RJ-45 port. GPoE+/S models support PoE+ (IEEE 802.3at) and provide 34.20W per port for more demanding PDs such as video conferencing equipment, PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) cameras and multi-stream 802.11n wireless access points.

Models with two fiber ports support redundant fiber uplinks for critical applications that require protection and sub 50ms restoration in the event of a fiber failure. The second fiber port may also be used for daisy-chaining multiple media converters, or it may be used as another switch port.

Configurable features include link modes which can propagate link faults from fiber to copper and copper to fiber, and a PoE power reset function, in which a loss of fiber Rx link can disable the PSE power output for 2 seconds to allow the remote PD to re-initialize.

OmniConverter media converters support fixed-fiber connectors and Small Form Pluggable (SFP) transceivers, enabling easy adaptability to different fiber types, distances and wavelengths. They support multimode, single-mode, single-mode single-fiber, in standard and CWDM wavelengths.

The compact standalone OmniConverter media converters can be tabletop mounted, wall mounted, or DIN-rail mounted using an optional DIN-rail mounting kit. They can also be mounted on a 1U 19” rack-mount shelf. They are DC powered and available with an optional external 100 - 240VAC universal power adapter.

Security and Wireless

In this application example, PoE and PoE+ IP surveillance cameras and Wireless Access Points are installed throughout a large facility. A Network switch with fiber ports is used to distribute a fiber link from a control room to a OmniConverter media converter with dual fiber ports. The second fiber port on the OmniConverter is used to daisy-chain the fiber to the next location, where an OmniConverter media converter with one fiber port terminates the fiber.

The OmniConverter media converters provide Power over Ethernet (PoE) over UTP cables to an IP camera and Wireless Access Point at each location, each of which can be located up to 100m from the media converter.

For PoE+ devices, such as cameras with heaters/blowers or pan/tilt/zoom motors that require up to 25.5W of power, the OmniConverter GPoE+/S may be used

Fiber-to-the-Desk

In this application example, a fiber-to-the-desk network is deployed to leverage the security and distance benefits of fiber.

In the main data closet, iConverter, miConverter or FlexPoint media converters can be installed in high-density rack-mount chassis to provide reliable and cost-effective fiber distribution from existing copper network equipment.

Fiber optic cables run to each office, where they are terminated by OmniConverter media converters. The OmniConverter media converters convert fiber to copper and, provide data and power to the IP phones and video conferencing equipment. They detect if the connected device is a PD, and disable PoE power to non-PoE desktop devices, such as PCs and laptops.
