iConverter® 10/100

10BASE-T or 100BASE-TX to Fast Ethernet Managed Media Converter

iConverter 10/100

The iConverter 10/100 managed media converters provide 10Base-T or 100Base-TX copper to 100Base-X fibre conversion.
Multimode and Single-mode dual fibre with ST, SC and LC connectors are supported, as well as single-fibre with SC connectors.

The RJ45 Ethernet ports supports auto-negotiation or manual configuration. Connectivity to network equipment is aided by a UTP crossover switch.
2 Ethernet Backplane ports are featured to provide connectivity to adjacent modules for network expansion.
Link Propogate, Link Segment and Remote Fault Detection modes are user-selectable to facilitate quick fault detection, isolation and reporting.

The iConverter 10/100 can be used in managed or unmanaged applications. The iConverter Management Module (NMM2) or Network Interface Device (NID) is required to use the management facilities.
The management module provides access to all the advanced features available on the module.

Physical DIP-switch settings such as auto-negotiation, Half/Full-Duplex, Link Mode selection and Ethernet Backplane selection can be overridden by the management software.
The module supports SNMP trap notification for the monitoring and notification of different network events.

The iConverter 10/100 plug-in module is hot swappable  and can be mounted in a high-density 19, or 5-Module 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 fibre or CWDM/DWDM wavelengths. This flexible architecture supports a wide variety of configurations for scalable and reliable fibre connectivity in Service Provider and Enterprise networks.

In this enterprise campus application example, iConverter 10/100 media converters are installed in a 19-Module chassis for high-density fibre distribution from UTP Ethernet switch at Building A.

At Building B, an Ethernet switch with a fibre port is connected directly via fibre to the iConverter module at Building A. A UTP Ethernet switch at Building C is connected via fibre with an iConverter 10/100 media converter installed in a 1-Module Chassis. Another iConverter 10/100 converts the fiber to copper in a fiber-to-desktop application.

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