The OmniConverter GPoE+/SX is a multi-port media converter that converts 10/100/1000BASE-T copper to 1000BASE-X or 100BASE-X fiber, and support Power-over-Ethernet (PoE and PoE+). OmniConverter PoE media converters provide network distance extension with fiber optic cabling, and function as PoE injectors providing power to four Powered Device (PDs) over standard UTP cables that carry the Ethernet data.

The GPoE+/SX provides up to 34.20W PoE+ (IEEE 802.3at) per RJ-45 port and supports frame sizes up to 10,240 bytes.

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 cascade multiple media converters, or it may be used as another switch port.

Configurable features include Directed Switch Mode, MUX Mode, Dual PoE Device Mode and a PoE power reset. 

When configured in Directed Switch Mode, video multicast traffic is only forwarded to the fiber uplink (Port 1), preventing the multicast video traffic from flooding other network ports.

MUX Mode allows the data traffic to be tunneled between two GPoE+/SX converters. The RJ-45 data traffic on one module will be mirrored to the corresponding RJ-45 on the other module.

The dual fiber port models can be configured in Dual PoE Device Mode. When configured, the GPoE+/SX operates as two independent PoE media converters, providing two separate fiber uplink ports.

PoE power reset enables a PD device to be re-initialized remotely. When a problem with a PD is identified, the fiber port on a managed switch can be shut down or disconnected, enabling the PoE power reset function on the OmniConverter. The PoE power to the PD is disabled for 2 seconds when a loss of receive fiber link is detected by the OmniConverter, eliminating the need for costly truck rolls to remote PD sites.

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 and single-mode dual fiber; and single-mode single-fiber, in standard and CWDM wavelengths.

The compact OmniConverter media converters can be wall mounted or DIN-rail mounted using an optional mounting clip. They are available with DC input power via terminal connectors or external 100 to 240V AC power adapters.

SX Video Application

In this application diagram, OmniConverter PoE injector media converters are deployed to overcome the distance limitation of UTP copper cabling by enabling fiber connectivity to PoE powered IP surveillance cameras and Wi-Fi access points. Gigabit fiber is distributed from a Ethernet switch at the network hub location.

OmniConverter GPoE+/SX media converters provide fiber connectivity and PoE power to two IP surveillance cameras and two access points at each location. The dual fiber ports enable a fiber daisy chain architecture that connects multiple surveillance locations. One port is the fiber uplink, and the other port is the fiber downlink to the next OmniConverter. Daisy chains are useful when deploying multiple PoE or PoE+ devices in a linear fashion along city streets, highways, rail lines, border fences, or pipelines.


Directed Switch Mode

SX Directed Switch Mode

Video over Multicast traffic (point to multipoint) is a bandwidth efficient method to transmit the video from one camera to multiple destinations (security monitors, DVR), this is done by sharing a single video stream with all of the destinations. As oppose to unicast traffic, each destination will receive a unique video stream from the camera, therefore multiplying the bandwidth usage by the number of destinations.

Multicast video traffic broadcasts a single video stream from the camera to the entire network, and the video stream is received by all of the destinations. But the broadcast video will flood other network devices (including printers and workstations) due to the nature of broadcast traffic. To avoid this, network equipment routes multicast traffic only to ports where the destination devices are connected.

The GPoE+/SX can be configured to Directed Switch Mode, so that video traffic is only forwarded to the fiber uplink Port 1, as shown in the diagram above, preventing the broadcast video traffic from flooding other network ports.


Dual PoE Device Mode

SX Dual Media Converter Mode

For applications requiring two separate fiber runs to the same location and independent connectivity to the Powered Devices, the GPoE+/SX can be configured for Dual PoE Device Mode. The GPoE+/SX provides separate and independent data traffic paths between the two fiber links and four RJ-45 ports. The blue lines represents one independent data traffic path and the red lines represent the other independent data traffic path.

SX Dual Media Converter Mode Detail

 In Dual PoE Device Mode, P1 is associated with P3 and P4 as illustrated with the blue lines and P2 is associated with P5 and P6 as illustrated with the red lines.


MUX Mode


Configuring the GPoE+/SX converters in MUX Mode provides point-to-point connectivity of Powered Devices to a head end switch over a fiber. MUX Mode tunnels the data traffic between two GPoE+/SX converters, so data traffic from the RJ-45 ports on one GPoE+/SX is routed to the matching RJ-45 ports on the other GPoE+/SX. This is illustrated by the colored lines. Port 2 on the GPoE+/SX on the left is associated with Port 2 on the GPoE+/SX on the right, shown with the purple line. The same port associations are illustrated with the red, green and blue lines.
