PoE Media Converters


The Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) technology enables copper network cables (cat5, cat6) to deliver data and electric current at the same time. This helps eliminate the need for additional cables. VERSITRON’s PoE media converters support network distance extension over fiber optic cabling while offering the advantage of combining fiber optic conversion with PoE technology. This advantage allows users to power remote devices such as security cameras, video conferencing equipment, VoIP hones or Wi-Fi access points without the need for additional power supplies. All VERSITRON PoE fiber converter devices adhere to the 802.3 IEEE Ethernet Standards.

How PoE Media Converters Work?

A standard 10/100/1000M PoE media converter facilitates fiber to copper data connectivity between the fiber switch and the remote or wireless access point. At the same time, it powers the access point. A fiber optic cable connects the fiber switch to the PoE media converter. This converter has a closely located AC or DC power source for signal conversion. The other end of this media converter has a copper or UTP cable connected to the remote access point, which is located a few meters away. This copper cable supplies power as well as transmits data to the remote access point, thus preventing the use of additional power supplies at the remote location. This is the basic functioning of a PoE media converter. Similarly, depending upon the type of PoE fiber converter, it can be connected to multiple devices to supply power as well as data. For instance, fiber optic cables are connected a high density chassis of media converters and a UTP switch. The other end of this cable is connected to a PoE fiber converter with AC or DC power connection. The other port of these converters have a UTP cable connecting to a computer and an IP phone, an IP camera and a remote access point, and several such devices located distantly.
