The OmniConverter GHPoE/M is a compact High-Power PoE Ethernet fiber switch that features one or two Gigabit fiber ports and four 10/100/1000 RJ-45 copper Power Sourcing Power-over-Ethernet ports. The OmniConverter GHPoE/M provides PoE, PoE+, and High-Power 60W PoE (also called 4 Pair PoE, PoE++, or UPoE) per RJ-45 port for outdoor pan-tilt-zoom cameras with heaters and blowers, and multi-stream wireless access points. The GHPoE/M switch enables network distance extension with fiber cabling.

The OmniConverter GHPoE/M is a standard Layer 2 Ethernet switch that forwards frames to any port based on their MAC address.

The OmniConverter GHPoE/M supports Directed Switch mode, which directs multicast traffic (such as video) only to the appropriate fiber port, preventing the multicast video traffic from flooding other network ports.

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 to daisy-chain multiple Ethernet switches, or it may be used as another switch port.

Models with two fiber ports also support Dual Device mode that enables the GHPoE/M to operate as two independent and isolated Ethernet switches. In Dual Device mode, the GHPoE/M provides separate and independent data traffic paths between the two fiber links and four RJ-45 ports.

The GHPoE/M modes of operation can be configured using easily accessible DIP-switches or using Web, Telnet, SSH or Serial Console management interfaces. The GHPoE/M supports in-band and out-of-band management. In-band management is provided by accessing the module through any of the Ethernet RJ-45 or fiber ports and supports IP-based web, Telnet, SSH and SNMPv1/v2c management interfaces. Out-of-band management is provided by accessing the serial console port. Omnitron’s NetOutlook SMNP software can be used for real-time alarm reporting and monitoring of each port.

The OmniConverter GHPoE/M is available with fixed ST, SC, and LC connectors or Small Form Pluggable (SFP) transceiver receptacles. Fiber ports support multimode or single-mode and dual fiber or single-fiber with distances up to 140 km. SFP models 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. To support high powered devices, each port can be configured 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 GHPoE/M also features a heartbeat signal that when configured will periodically ping the attached PD. On a loss of connectivity to the PD, the GHPoE/M can automatically power cycle or shutdown the PD.

The OmniConverter compact fiber 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

OmniConverter High-Power PoE fiber switches can be deployed in a simple point-to-point topology.

In this application example, OmniConverter GHPoE/M High-Power PoE 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 High-Power PoE fiber switches with dual fiber ports that enable a fiber daisy chain with multiple locations. Each OmniConverter GHPoE/M provides fiber data connectivity and PoE+ power for IP cameras and Wi-Fi access points at each location.

Directed Switch Mode

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

This example shows a video camera that broadcasts a multicast video stream 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.

PoE Switch Directed Switch Mode GPoE+M

Dual Device Mode

For secure applications requiring two separate network domains over fiber runs to the same location, the GHPoE/M can be configured in 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 represent a Security network and the purple lines represent a Wi-Fi network

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

IP-based web management provides remote management of the OmniConverter 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 system status, port statistics and configuration screens.

Configuration capabilities include PoE power, port settings, DIP-switches, VLAN, switch modes, firmware updates and system maintenance.
