Description


The iConverter GX/X managed fiber-to-fiber Gigabit Ethernet fiber converter/transponder is a member of the modular iConverter product family. The GX/X provides a cost-effective solution to extend fiber network distances.

The GX/X also functions as a fiber repeater supporting the three Rs (regeneration, retiming and reshaping). Multiple GX/X modules can be cascaded to extend total network distances.

iConverter GX/X models support multimode and single-mode dual fiber with SC and LC connectors; and single-mode single-fiber with SC connectors.

The iConverter GX/X features two 10/100 Ethernet backplane ports to provide connectivity to adjacent modules for network expansion and for in-band connectivity to an iConverter Network Management Module.

The iConverter GX/X advanced features include IEEE 802.1Q VLAN, 802.1p Quality of Service prioritization and Port Access Control, which provides the ability to enable or disable individual ports to control delivery of services. The GX/X also supports port-level MIB statistics reporting real-time packet statistics, performance and operational monitoring.

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

The GX/X 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 auto-negotiation, Backplane Selection, remotely configure additional parameters including VLAN, Port VLAN and Port Access Control. Some of the real-time GX/X parameters that can be monitored include duplex mode, link and data status. The port MIB statistics include transmit packet counts, receive packet counts and error counts.

The hot-swappable plug-in module 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 or in a 1-Module chassis with AC or DC power input.
