Description


The OmniConverter GPoE+/Sx is a compact unmanaged PoE and PoE+ Ethernet fiber switch that features one or two Gigabit fiber ports and four or eight 10/100/1000 RJ-45 copper Power Sourcing Power-over-Ethernet ports. The OmniConverter switch enables network distance extension with fiber cabling and provides PoE+ power to all RJ-45 ports.

The GPoE+/Sx functions can be configured using easily accessible DIP-switches.

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

The 4-Port GPoE+/Sx supports MUX Mode, which allows the data traffic to be tunneled between two GPoE+/Sx switches. Data traffic on the RJ-45 ports on one switch are mirrored to the corresponding RJ-45 ports on the other switch.

The GPoE+/Sx 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 GPoE+/Sx to operate as two independent and isolated Ethernet switches. In Dual Device mode, the GPoE+/Sx provides separate and independent data traffic paths between the two fiber links and four or eight RJ-45 ports.

The OmniConverter GPoE+/Sx 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 4 Port RJ-45 models support 1000BASE-X and 100BASE-X SFP fiber transceivers.

The GPoE+/Sx 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.

PoE power reset enables a PD 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.

The compact OmniConverter switches can be wall mounted or DIN-rail mounted using an optional DIN-rail mounting clip. The OmniConverter switches are available with DC input power via terminal connectors or external 100 to 240V AC power adapters. The 8-Port models are available with 100 to 240V AC power adapters.





Examples


Daisy Chain Application

OmniConverter GPoE+/Sx PoE fiber switches can be deployed in a simple daisy chain topology.

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

 

PoE Switch Application GPoE+Sx

 

Directed Switch Mode

The GPoE+/Sx 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+Sx

 

Dual Device Mode

For secure applications requiring two separate network domains over fiber runs to the same location, the GPoE+/Sx can be configured in Dual Device Mode.

The GPoE+/Sx provides separate and independent data traffic paths between the two fiber links and four or eight RJ-45 ports. In the example below, the green lines represent a Security network and the purple lines represent a Wi-Fi network

 

PoE Switch Dual Device Mode GPoE+Sx

 

MUX Mode (4-Port RJ-45 Models Only)

Configuring the GPoE+/Sx switches 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 switches, 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.
