Media converter

ComNet, Communication Networks, expanded its Ethernet product line by introducing a 1000FX fiber optic media converter with Power over Ethernet (PoE). The CNGE2MCPOE provides a PoE function to those POE-compatible peripheral devices. This device supports the latest IEEE 802.3at PoE standard for use for as power sourcing equipment (PSE), supplying up to 25 Watts of power. Designed for use in harsh environments, these products allow 10/100/1000TX Ethernet data to be transmitted optically over either multimode or single mode optical fiber, by application-specific, optional SFP modules. “Power over Ethernet is becoming a very desirable feature,” said ComNet’s Andrew Acquarulo Jr. “Throughout the market we are seeing more and more devices such as IP cameras and other peripheral devices that are PoE powered. With this feature, and with the desire of many users to exceed the existing 100-meter transmission distance limitation of CAT-5e cabling, ComNet now offers a PoE solution where the transmission distance may be significantly extended, with no loss of bandwidth. The ComNet CNGE2MCPOE solves this challenge.”
