Description


The FlexPoint OC3FF is an OC-3/STM-1 fiber-to-fiber converter/transponder that provides reliable and cost-effective extension of network distances by connecting multimode fiber networks or devices over single-mode fiber cabling.

The FlexPoint OC3FF is designed to operate with a constant rate signal between 1Mbps to 155Mbps allowing the converter to be used in ATM networks as well as other fiber-to-fiber protocol applications.

No manual configuration is required with the plug-and-play FlexPoint OC3FF. Connect the fiber cables to the appropriate interface and the installation is complete.

The fiber port operates at 850nm, 1310nm or 1550nm and features SC or ST connectors. Multimode fiber models support distances of up to 5km, single-mode fiber models support distances of up to 120km, and single-mode single-fiber models support distances up to 20km.

The FlexPoint OC3FF features descriptions of the LED indicators on the label for easy in-the-field installation and maintenance. The LEDs report the availability of power and the detection of devices attached to the fiber ports.

FlexPoint modules can be mounted utilizing optional wall-mounting hardware or with DIN-rail mounting brackets. They can also be rack-mounted in a 5-Module shelf or in a high-density 14-Module, power-redundant Powered Chassis.

FlexPoint modules installed in the 5-Module shelf or used as standalone devices can be powered by an external AC to DC power adapter, or through the 5VDC chassis connector. Standalone modules can also be powered by attaching an external DC power supply (18-60VDC). When used in the 14-Module power-redundant Powered Chassis with any combination of AC and DC power supplies, the installed modules are powered via the 5VDC chassis connector.

The wide variety of FlexPoint mounting and power options provide flexible upgrade paths as network requirements change and grow.

FlexPoint unmanaged media converters are easy to use and provide dependable fiber connectivity in Enterprise and Government networks around the world.





Examples


The FlexPoint OC3FF fiber converter can extend the network across single-mode fiber with distances up to 120km. In this application, the customer's router is connected to an Add Drop Multiplexer (ADM) providing access to the SONET ring using a pair of FlexPoint OC3FF fiber converters. The converters provide the multimode to single-mode conversion.
