We need to deploy outdoor WLAN access point to be mounted at one of the lamp post. 
Power outlet provided will be AC power inside a outdoor weather proof box. 
Connection back to central switch will be using fiber optic cable due to the distance is about 1km.

Switch-SFP ——fo 1km—— SFP-Media Converter with POE —copper— WAC6553D-E

A) Media converter will use AC power adapter to connect to AC power at the lamp post to be housed inside the outdoor weather proof box.
B) Media converter will provide POE+ power to WAC6553D-E

Do you have a solution from Zyxel? Or other alternative solution for this application?
