The iConverter 10T/2 is a 10BASE-T to 10BASE-2 media converter that converts between twisted pair (UTP) and coax LANs and joins their collision domains. The iConverter 10T/2 facilitates the connection of a coax segment to a 10BASE-T hub. When using a pair of iConverter 10T/2 converters back to back, they can connect between two 10BASE-T hubs via coax.

The UTP port has a modular EIA/TIA 568 RJ-45 connector that supports categories 3 to 5 wiring and connects to distances up to 100m. The iConverter 10T/2 detects and corrects wiring polarity reversals, and features a crossover switch that facilitates a straight-through cable connection to a workstation or a hub, eliminating the need for a crossover cable.

The coax port has a BNC connector and supports a 50 ohm cable and distances of up to 185m. Per IEEE 802.3 standard, up to 30 workstations can be attached to the coax segment. The iConverter 10T/2 features a convenient and cost-effective cable termination via a termination switch and a built-in termination element.

The iConverter 10T/2 module is hot-swappable and can be mounted in a 19-Module (2U high) or 5-Module (1U high) rack-mountable chassis (19-inch or 23-inch) with any combination of redundant AC, 24VDC or 48VDC power supplies. It can also be mounted in a 2-Module AC or 18 to 60VDC powered chassis, or in a 1-Module AC/DC powered chassis.

The iConverter family of managed fiber access media converters are used in Service Provider access networks and Enterprise LANs. iConverter media converters provide fiber connectivity with copper-to-fiber, multimode fiber to single-mode fiber, or dual fiber to single-fiber conversions.

Management is accomplished by installing a Network Management Module (NMM2) or a media converter with integrated management (such as an iConverter 10/100M2) in the chassis with the 10T/2. Management provides monitoring, remote configuration and trap notification. The management module can be accessed via SNMP, Telnet and via a serial port. The SNMP-based management is accomplished via Omnitron's intuitive, graphic-oriented NetOutlook management software or third party SNMP management software, while the Telnet and the serial interfaces have an easy-to-use, menu-driven interface.

Some of the real-time 10T/2 parameters that can be monitored include power, link and data receive status. Other parameters include module type and model, hardware and software revisions, serial numbers, and a user-defined identifier.

The user can override the 10T/2 module's physical switch settings using SNMP or Telnet to remotely configure switchselectable parameters such as Backplane Selection.

In addition to all standard iConverter SNMP traps such as module insertion and removal, the 10T/2 modules can generate traps on port state changes including link-up and link-down. Trap monitoring of specific events can be selectively enabled or disabled by the network administrator.
