The RuggedNet GHPoE/Mi is a ruggedized High-Power PoE industrial 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 managed GHPoE/Mi provides PoE, PoE+, and High-Power PoE (60W) per RJ-45 port for outdoor pan-tilt-zoom cameras, and multistream wireless access points. The GHPoE/Mi switch enables network distance extension with fiber cabling, and provides full 60 Watts of High-Power PoE (also called 4 Pair PoE, PoE++, or UPoE) simultaneously to all RJ-45 ports.

The GHPoE/Mi functions can be configured using easily accessible DIP-switches or using Web, Telnet, SSH 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 realtime operation monitoring of each port. The GHPoE/Mi also supports SNMPv1/v2c for real-time alarm reporting.

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

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

The RuggedNet GHPoE/Mi is available with fixed ST, SC, and LC connectors or Small Form Pluggable (SFP) transceiver ports. 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/Mi 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/Mi features a remote PoE power reset function that can be configured with a DIP-switch or via management. This 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/Mi also features a heartbeat signal that when configured will periodically ping the attached PD. On a loss of connectivity to the PD, the GHPoE/Mi can automatically power cycle or shutdown the PD.

The RuggedNet compact industrial High-Power PoE fiber switches can be wall mounted using an optional wall mount bracket or DIN-rail mounted using the included DIN-rail mounting clip. They are available with single or dual DC input power options.

Two contact-closure alarm relays are available to detect user configured events. Relay contacts can be configured for normally open or normally closed operation. One alarm input is available for detecting external events such as door open or closed.

Daisy Chain Application

RuggedNet industrial High-Power PoE fiber switches can be deployed in a simple point-to-point topology, along a fiber daisy chain, or with redundant fiber links. In this industrial manufacturing application example, RuggedNet GHPoE/Mi High-Power PoE fiber switches are deployed along an assembly line. Gigabit fiber is distributed from a fiber switch at a network hub location to RuggedNet GHPoE/Mi High-Power PoE switches with dual fiber ports that enable a fiber daisy chain with multiple locations. Each RuggedNet GHPoE/Mi provides fiber data connectivity and High-Power PoE power for IP cameras and Wi-Fi access points at each location.

 GHPoE Mi Industrial Manufacturing Application


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/Mi 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+Mi



Dual Device Mode

For secure applications requiring two separate network domains over fiber runs to the same location and independent connectivity for security and Wi-Fi devices, the GHPoE/Mi can be configured in Dual Device Mode.

The GHPoE/Mi 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 separate and independent Wi-Fi network.

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

IP-based web management provides remote management of the RuggedNet compact industrial High-Power 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 powering, port settings, DIP-switches, VLAN, switch modes, firmware updates and system maintenance.
