Surveillance Network Design with FS Fiber to Ethernet Media Converter

  • Retail
  • Aland Islands


Nowadays, the video surveillance network is a key component in providing real-time monitoring and security for many businesses and organizations. However, for the IP cameras or other video surveillance devices that do not have fiber optic ports, the conversion from copper to fiber is necessary. Considering this, FS has built a safe and efficient surveillance network for the clients with fiber to Ethernet media converters.


There are four floors in the company's building and the distance between the server room and offices is 210m. The client already has a Huawei 10G SFP+ network switch in place, which needs to link a couple of DC-powered APs and several network video recorders. The problem is to find a budget-friendly way to link the 10G SFP+ switch with the APs and network video recorders. As the 10G media converter is too cost-prohibitive, is it possible to limit the bandwidth on the Huawei switch port to 1G?

The connection from the 3rd floor to other three floors should be achieved by MTP cabling and FHD cassettes to simplified cabling, but how to ensure the right polarity?


Since 1G data rate can currently satisfy their network requirements, we suggested the client to limit the speed of Huawei 10G switch to 1G per port. So the more affordable 1G fiber media converter can be deployed to convert optical signal to electrical signal for connecting network video recorders and APs.
The media converter is used for bridging the fiber and Cat6 cabling and extending the transmission distance. Thus the network video recorder can be connected with the switch to monitor the offices and Wi-Fi can be provided to every office.
As for the cabling between the 3rd floor and the other three, 12-fiber MTP to 6×LC cassettes are used to convert the 12 LC fibers in each floor to a MTP trunk cable. And Type A MTP cassettes, Type A MTP-12 trunks and Type AF MTP cassettes are applied for proper polarity management. The MTP connectivity greatly simplifies troubleshooting and future maintenance.
