Description


The iConverter 100Fx/Tx managed media converters are members of the modular iConverter product family, and provide 100BASE-TX copper to 100BASE-X fiber conversion.

The iConverter 100Fx/Tx models support multimode and single-mode dual fiber with ST, SC and LC connectors; and single-mode single-fiber with SC connectors. The RJ-45 port supports 100BASE-TX Half or Full-Duplex mode. A UTP crossover switch facilitates connectivity to network equipment such as hubs, switches and workstations.

The 100Fx/Tx features user-selectable Link Propagate, Link Segment, Remote Fault Detection and Symmetrical Fault Detection modes to facilitate quick fault detection, isolation and reporting.

The iConverter 100Fx/Tx can be used in managed or unmanaged applications. Management is accomplished by installing an iConverter Management Module (NMM2) or Network Interface Device (NID) in the same chassis. The management module provides access to all the advanced features available on the module.

The management software can override the physical DIP-switch settings such as Link Propagate, Link Segment, and Remote Fault Detection. The module supports SNMP trap notification for the monitoring and notification of different network events.

iConverter 100Fx/Tx modules are 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 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.

iConverter Multi-Service Platform

 

The iConverter Multi-Service Platform consists of Network Interface Devices, T1/E1 multiplexers, CWDM/DWDM multiplexers and managed media converters that combine to deliver Carrier Ethernet and TDM services over fiber or CWDM/DWDM wavelengths.





Examples


In this enterprise campus application example, iConverter 100Fx/Tx media converters are installed in a 19-Module chassis for high-density fiber distribution from UTP Ethernet switch at Building A.

At Building B, an Ethernet switch with a fiber port is connected directly via fiber to the iConverter module at Building A. A UTP Ethernet switch at Building C is connected via fiber with an iConverter 100Fx/Tx media converter installed in a 1-Module Chassis. Another iConverter 100Fx/Tx converts the fiber to copper in a fiber-to-desktop application.

In all cases, multimode or single-mode fiber can be used, and fiber links can be extended up to 120km using single-mode fiber.
