iConverter GX/T

10/100/1000BASE-T UTP to 1000BASE-X Managed Ethernet Media Converter

The iConverter GX/T media converters are members of the modular iConverter product family. The GX/T provides 10/100/1000 UTP copper to GigE fiber conversion and can be used in a managed or unmanaged fashion. The GX/T is ideal in network core or Central Office (CO) applications when conversion is required from a 10/100/1000 core switch to GigE fiber, and in edge applications when the GigE fiber is converted back into 10/100/1000 copper and delivered to a departmental or Customer Premise (CPE) switch.

The iConverter GX/T media converters are members of the modular iConverter product family. The GX/T provides 10/100/1000 RJ-45 copper to Gigabit Ethernet fiber conversion and can be used in a managed or unmanaged fashion. 

The GX/T is a chassis-based module that provides high-density fiber distribution from copper network switches.

The GX/T models support multimode and single-mode dual fiber with ST, SC and LC connectors; and single-mode singlefiber with SC connectors. The RJ-45 port supports 10/100/1000 and Half/Full-Duplex auto-negotiation with both hardware and software manual override controls.

The GX/T features two 10/100 Ethernet backplane ports to provide connectivity to adjacent modules for network expansion and for in-band connectivity to an iConverter Network Management Module (NMM2).

Advanced features include VLAN, which allows network managers control the traffic flow between the copper, fiber and backplane ports to enhance security, and Port Access Control, which provides the ability to enable or disable individual ports to control delivery of services to customers. The GX/T also supports port level MIB statistics reporting a real-time packet statistics to provide performance and operational monitoring.

The GX/T features user-selectable Link Propagate, Link Segment, Remote Fault Detection and Symmetrical Fault Detection modes to facilitate quick fault detection, isolation and reporting.

iConverter GX/T modules are hot-swappable and can be mounted in a 19-Module (2U high) or 5-Module (1U high) rackmountable chassis (19-inch or 23-inch) with any combination of redundant AC, 24VDC or 48VDC power supplies. They can also be mounted in a 2-Module AC or 18 to 60VDC powered chassis, or in a 1-Module AC or DC powered chassis.

The iConverter GX/T can be used in managed or unmanaged applications. Management provides remote configuration, monitoring and trap notification. Management of the GX/T is accomplished by installing an iConverter Management Module (NMM2) or Network Interface Device (NID) in the same chassis.

The Management Module can be accessed via SNMP, Telnet, and serial port. The GX/T can be managed with Omnitron’s intuitive, graphic-oriented NetOutlook SNMP Management Software or third party SNMP management software. Management via the Telnet and the serial interfaces have an easy-to-use, menu-driven interface.

The management software can override the physical DIPswitch settings such as auto-negotiation, Half or Full- Duplex, and backplane selection, and remotely configure additional parameters including Port VLAN and Port Access Control. Some of the real-time GX/T parameters that can be monitored include duplex mode, link and data activity status. Other parameters include module type and model, hardware and software revisions, serial numbers and a user-definedidentifier. The port MIB statistics include transmit and receive packet counts and error counts.

The iConverter GX/T supports SNMP trap notification for the monitoring and notification of different network events. Specific events that generate traps include module insertion and removal, and port link-up and link-down. Trap monitoring of specific events can be selectively enabled or disabled by the network management software.

 162.5/125µm, 100/140µm multimode fiber up to 220m. 50/125µm multimode fiber up to 550m. Refer to the fiber cable manufacturer for multimode
  distance specifications.
 2When using single-fiber (SF) media converter models, the Tx wavelength on one end has to match the Rx wavelength on the other.

  For wide temperature (-40 to 60° C), add a "W" to the end of the model number. Contact Omnitron for other fiber options and extended temperature
  (-40 to 75° C) models.
  Order the appropriate Gigabit SFPs separately. Visit http://www.omnitron-systems.com/optical-transceivers
