iConverter CWDM Multiplexers

CWDM Multiplexers

iConverter CWDM Multiplexers/Demultiplexers and Add/Drop Multiplexers increase the bandwidth capacity of existing single fiber or dual fiber infrastructure by multiplexing up to sixteen independent wavelengths over a fiber optic connection.

The modular iConverter CWDM products utilize a small and scalable plug-in form factor and can be installed in any iConverter chassis, achieving some of the highest port densities in the industry.

iConverter T1/E1 Multiplexers

T1/E1 Multiplexers

iConverter T1/E1 MUX products multiplex up to sixteen independent T1/E1 circuits and 10/100 or 10/100/1000 Ethernet from copper links onto a fiber link

Designed for mobile backhaul, Enterprise PBX connectivity and T1/E1 distance extension up to 120km, iConverter T1/E1 multiplexers operate as bookend devices with one MUX at each end of a dark fiber or CWDM fiber link. iConverter T1/E1 multiplexers can be managed or unmanaged, and are available in configurations with 4, 8, 12 or 16 T1/E1 ports.

iConverter Management System

iConverter modules can be managed or unmanaged. When managed, the iConverter management system provides the ability to remotely monitor network performance, configure hardware parameters, provision services, generate statistic reports and perform advanced fault detection.

Management can be accessed through a SNMP-based graphical user interfacesuch as Omnitron’s NetOutlook ® SNMP management software, or third party SNMP software. NetOutlook network management software for Windows provides secure, Carrier-Grade network management services for Metro Ethernet and Enterprise networks with real-time management, status monitoring and configuration control of iConverter chassis and modules.

Management of chassis and modules is achieved by installing a Network Management Module (NMM2) to a chassis. A media converter with integrated management can also be installed in the chassis to provide management of the chassis and other modules.
