iConverter XG Industrial Media Converter

Industrial 10Gbps Media Converter and Transponder

The iConverter XG and XG+ are 10 Gigabit, protocol-transparent media converters with two pluggable transceiver ports supporting the three Rs (regeneration, retiming and reshaping). By taking advantage of the wide variety of 10G pluggable transceivers, they can be used as copper-to-fiber converters, fiber mode converters or WDM transponders.

The iConverter XG is an industrial 10 Gigabit, protocoltransparent media converter with two pluggable transceiver ports. The XG supports the three Rs (regeneration, retimingand reshaping). By taking advantage of the wide variety of 10G pluggable transceivers, the XG can be used as a copper-to-fiber converter, fiber mode converter or WDM transponder.

The iConverter XG supports 100% traffic throughput and has no packet size restrictions. Ultra low packet latency enables high-performance connectivity for data centers and financial networks. The XG is protocol transparent within the range of 9.95Gbps to 10.71Gbps or 9.95Gbps to 11.32Gbps, providing interoperability with 10G Ethernet, 10G SONET/SDH, 10G Fibre Channel and 10G OTN (G.709).

Three interface configurations are available: XFP to XFP, XFP to SFP+, and SFP+ to SFP+. Pluggable XFP and SFP+ transceivers can be used for multimode and single-mode applications, supporting short haul distances, long haul distances and WDM fiber links.

The iConverter XG is available as compact, unmanaged standalone unit, or chassis plug-in modules that can be managed with a management module installed in the chassis. The hot-swappable, plug-in modules can be mounted in a variety of chassis with DC power supplies.

Plug-in modules feature full management capabilities, including status reporting, fault detection, threshold violations, loopback functionality and SNMP trap notification. SNMP traps provide link status availability and transceiver threshold alerts.

The standalone iConverter XG is an unmanaged tabletop or wall-mount unit. The tabletop model can be DIN-rail mounted using an optional DIN-rail mounting kit. Both the tabletop and the wall-mount models are DC powered and are available with an external AC to DC power adapter, or a terminal connector for DC power.

Built-in loopback functions, on-board status LEDs and link fault propagation modes facilitate easy setup and quick troubleshooting. Pluggable transceiver alarm conditions reported through the digital diagnostic monitoring interface are displayed by the on-board status LEDs or management interface on plug-in modules.

Direct Connect/Fiber Conversion Application

 

Fiber_Direct_Attach_App.jpg

This application shows two 10G switches with SFP+ ports in two different locations. The switches are connected via longhaul, single-mode fiber (>80km) with a pair of iConverter XG 8599-01-AZ (SFP+to XFP) media converters. In the top location, a low-cost SFP+ Direct Attach Cable is used to connect the 10G switch port to the media converter because the distance is within the 10 meter limit of the Direct Attach Cable. In the bottom location, a pair of multimode SFP+ transceivers provide the connectivity between the media converters and the switches.
