Description

The operator team came up with this device, and while it's being marketed as a UFiber product, its is just as useful in the UniFi world by allowing you to quickly convert any POE+ port to an SFP port. 

 

It has a POE+ in ethernet port and an SFP port.  It also handles passive 24 POE in.

Below I've used an 18 inch green patch cable from one of the POE+ ports on a crowded US-48 POE and made it into another SFP port.

You can use as many of these as you need.  If you need 15 SFP ports, buy a bunch of these and you're all set.  

 

If even works on some of the smaller UniFi Switches that don't have SFP ports

The UFIber Active Media Converter is currently available in the Early Access Store.   

 

And being discussed here by @UBNT-Jordan s Edge Group

relax, just wanted to know if anyone has had this problem of optical interference

@celsoamancio A fiber cable is like a tunnel or a water pipe.  There really isn’t the ability for one fiber signal to interfere with another anymore then the ability of one direct water pipe to interfere with another.

Ah man, I just got an integrator to supply two fibre converters with his fibre run .. Does anything display on this for throughput numbers?
