In the Smart City application above, fiber is being distributed from a Smart City Central Office with a chassis of iConverter copper to fiber media converters to various locations within the City network. 

On the top of the street, the fiber is daisy chained from one location to the next with OmniConverter PoE Media Converters, and both data and power is being provided to PoE powered devices such as Surveillance cameras, Smart Mobility and WiFi access points, and Smart Parking systems.  Outside the Library, an OmniExtender PoE Extender is used to connect Emergency Alert Systems that are located just outside the 100 meter distance limit of copper cabling.

On the bottom of the street, a Hospital and Emergency Services are connected to the city network with a protected fiber ring.  The RuggedNet Industrial 802.3bt PoE Switch can be mounted outdoors in a compact enclosure or cabinet, and can withstand harsh temperatures from -40 to 75°C, while providing up to 100W of PoE power to PTZ cameras and power-hungry WiFi access points.  The OmniConverter 802.3bt PoE switch at the Hospital can be powered by AC and also provide 802.3bt PoE connectivity to multiple devices.  Both the RuggedNet and OmniConverter managed PoE switches support IEC 62439-2 Media Redundancy Protocol (MRP) and IEEE 802.1w Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP), which allows Smart City network manager to run protected fiber rings to minimize potential downtime.
