Omnitron Powers Ethernet to Small Cells
IRVINE, Calif. -- Omnitron Systems has announced the launch of GM4-PoE, the first Carrier Ethernet (CE) 2.0 Network Interface Device that integrates up to 60W Power over Ethernet (PoE) to directly power small cell equipment and reduce service providersí Total Cost of Ownership.
Integrating CE 2.0 demarcation and PoE functions into a compact device simplifies small cell deployments by eliminating need for power wiring to the cell or alternatively, the usage of mid-span power equipment, and therefore reduces the overall space, power and cost required for outdoor and indoor small cell deployments.
GM4-PoE NIDs are available in two PoE basic models; GM4-PoE+ and GM4-HPoE. Both models support the 802.3af PoE (15.4W) and 802.3at PoE+ (25.5W) standards per port, while the GM4-HPoE models also provide up to 60W of power per port. The GM4-PoE NIDs are available with full PoE power on up to four RJ-45 ports, and feature up to two SFP fiber ports that support G.8032 Ethernet Ring Protection Switching to enable resilient ring configurations.
