Fiber optic transceivers are usually used for the connection between copper cables and optical cables. It helps network managers overcome the limitation of shorter copper cable transmission distances. PoE optical fiber transceiver is a kind of transceiver, and it is also suitable for this. How much do you know about PoE-powered fiber optic transceivers?
What is a PoE fiber optic transceiver?
Generally, the traditional optical fiber transceiver (Ethernet media converter) can only transmit data, and the PoE optical fiber converter (PoE media converter) can not only help users establish the link of electrical signal to optical signal, but also can be used as power supply equipment (PSE, Power Supply Equipment) provides power support for 1-2 powered devices (PD, Powered Device) through network cables
By using PoE photoelectric converters (such as the 10/100/1000M PoE fiber optic transceiver shown in the figure below), it can bring a high degree of flexibility to the network cabling of the optical fiber link, while also greatly saving cabling costs. In addition, PoE fiber optic transceivers also retain the advantages of traditional fiber optic transceivers, which can extend the network transmission distance through fiber optic connections, allowing power receiving devices far away from the switch (such as VoIP phones, wireless APs, cameras, and POS machines) No longer limited by the distance of the network cable.
How does the PoE optical transceiver work?
PoE fiber optic transceivers have two application methods: only transmit data or supply power while transmitting data. The PoE optical fiber transceiver is connected to the switch and the wireless AP through copper cables and optical cables, and supplies power to the AP at the same time.
The PoE fiber optic transceiver is generally placed near the power supply (AC/DC), and then connected to a remote switch through an optical cable, and then connected to a wireless AP through a network cable (not more than 100 meters away from the transceiver).
