The OmniConverter GHPoE/M is a managed Ethernet switch that features one or two 1000BASE-X Gigabit fiber ports and four 10/100/1000BASE-T RJ-45 Power-over-Ethernet ports. In typical applications, the GHPoE/M provides PoE, PoE+, and HPoE (60W) per RJ-45 port for outdoor pan-tilt-zoom cameras with heaters and blowers, and multi-stream wireless access points. The OmniConverter switch enables network distance extension with fiber cabling and provides full HPoE power simultaneously to all RJ-45 ports.

The GHPoE/M functions can be configured using easily accessible DIP-switches or using Web, Telnet or Serial Console management interfaces. The IP-based web and Telnet management can be accessed through any of the Ethernet RJ-45 or fiber ports and facilitates the configuration and real-time operation monitoring of each port.

The OmniConverter GHPoE/M is a Layer 2 Ethernet switch that can be configured in Directed Switch mode. As a Layer 2 Ethernet switch, frames are forwarded to any port based on their MAC address. In Directed Switch mode, multicast traffic (such as video) is directed only to the appropriate fiber port, preventing the flooding of copper ports.

Models with two fiber ports support Dual Device Mode that enables the GHPoE/M to operate as two independent and isolated switches. Models with two fiber ports also 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 to daisy-chain multiple OmniConverter PoE fiber switches, or it may be used as another switch port.

The OmniConverter GHPoE/M is available with fixed ST, SC, and LC connectors or Small Form Pluggable (SFP) transceiver ports. Fiber ports support multimode or singlemode and dual fiber or single-fiber with distances up to 140km. SFPs support a variety of distances in standard and CWDM wavelengths.

The GHPoE/M automatically negotiates and delivers the power level required by its Powered Device (PD) partner. When negotiating to PoE (IEEE 802.3af) it delivers up to 15.4 Watts per RJ-45 port. When negotiating to PoE+ (IEEE 802.3at) it delivers up to 30 Watts per RJ-45 port. When negotiating to HPoE it delivers up to 60 Watts per port. To support powered devices that require more than 30 Watts, each port can be configured to be forced to deliver up to 60 Watts of power.

The GHPoE/M features a remote PoE power reset function that can be configured with a DIP-switch or via management. The PoE power reset feature allows all PDs or individual PDs to be power-cycled and reset remotely to save time and expense by eliminating the need to dispatch manpower to remote network sites.

The compact OmniConverter Ethernet switches can be wall mounted or DIN-rail mounted using an optional mounting clip. They are available with external 100 to 240V AC power adapters or a DC terminal connector.

Daisy Chain Application

In this application example, OmniConverter GHPoE/M HPoE fiber switches are deployed along a fiber daisy chain. Gigabit fiber is distributed from a fiber switch at a network hub location to OmniConverter GHPoE/M HPoE fiber switches with dual fiber ports that enable a fiber daisy chain with multiple locations.

Directed Switch Mode

In some networks, video cameras broadcast multicast video streams to the entire network, and the video stream is received by all of the destinations. This multicast video can cause port flooding on other network devices (including other cameras, printers and workstations). To avoid this, multicast traffic is routed only to ports where the destination devices are connected.

The GHPoE/M can be configured to operate in Directed Switch Mode, which directs data traffic only to the uplink fiber port, as shown in the diagram below, preventing the multicast video traffic from flooding other network ports.


PoE Switch Directed Switch Mode GPoE+M


Dual Device Mode

For secure applications requiring two separate networks, the GHPoE/M can be configured to Dual Device Mode.

The GHPoE/M provides separate and independent data traffic paths between the two fiber links and four RJ-45 ports. In the example below, the green lines represents one independent network and the purple lines represent the other independent network.

The IP-based web management provides easy access to all the features of the GHPoE/M using any standard web browser.

IP-based web management provides remote management of the GHPoE/M compact PoE fiber switches, and provides the ability to remotely monitor status and configure hardware/software parameters.

The management software provides intuitive and easy-to-navigate menu options for Status and Configuration screens.
