Description


The iConverter Gx AN is a 1000BASE-T copper to 1000BASE-X fiber media converter, and is available as a compact unmanaged standalone unit or a managed chassis plug-in module.

The RJ-45 port supports auto-negotiation or forced negotiation of duplex modes and pause capability. The fiber port supports both manual or auto-negotiation.

The GX AN fixed fiber models support 1000BASE-X over multimode and single-mode dual fiber with ST, SC and LC connectors; and single-mode single-fiber with SC connectors. The Gx AN Small Form Pluggable (SFP) model enables adaptability to different fiber types and distances. The SFP model also supports Coarse Wave Division Multiplexing (CWDM) and Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technologies to increase the bandwidth capacity of fiber infrastructure.

The iConverter Gx AN features user-selectable link fault detection modes, including Link Propagate, Link Segment and Remote Fault Detection. These Link Modes provide rapid fault detection and isolation by monitoring the state of the cabling hardware, and operate independently of the network management.

iConverter Gx AN media converters are available as compact, unmanaged standalone units, or chassis plug-in modules that can be managed with a Management Module (NMM2) or Network Interface Device (NID) installed in the chassis. The management module provides access to all the advanced features on the module.

The Gx AN standalone models are available with an external AC to DC power adapter or with a 2-pin terminal connector for direct connection to DC power. The standalone module can be DIN-Rail mounted using the optional DIN-Rail mounting bracket (8250-0) or mounting clips (8251-0).

The hot-swappable plug-in module can be mounted in a 19 or 5-Module iConverter chassis with redundant AC and DC power supplies. It can also be mounted in a 2-Module AC or DC powered chassis, or in a 1-Module chassis with AC or DC power input.

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. This flexible architecture supports a wide variety of configurations for scalable and reliable fiber connectivity in Service Provider and Enterprise networks.





Examples


In this application example, Gx AN media converters are deployed in a star topology network with fiber links distributed from a central location.

At Building A, iConverter Gx AN media converters are installed in an iConverter 19-Module providing a high density copper-to-fiber deployment. RJ-45 ports from an Ethernet switch are converted to fiber, extending the network to different locations throughout the campus.

At Buildings B and C, iConverter Gx AN standalone media converters provide copper-to-fiber connectivity to Ethernet switches in each building.

The iConverter Gx AN supports Link Modes used to provide network notification of fiber and copper faults. Link failures on any port are propagated to managed network switches, notifying network administrators of link failure.
