Flexible solution for mixed Copper and Fiber Network Environments

Flexible solution for mixed Copper and Fiber Network Environments

Benefits

Easy troubleshooting

With the Link Fault Signaling (LFS) mechanism, one failed link detected from copper port will force to stop a link on the fiber port, or it will conduct the linkdown on fiber part, and vice versa. The copper downlink port will stop transmitting and turned off as soon as the remote link is failed, and the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) of the connected switch will start functioning as a result to activate the backup link that secure the network operation. Transparent link status is delivered by LFS mechanism to make network recovery and troubleshooting easier and faster. Transparent link status data will be sent by the Link Fault Signaling (LFS) mechanism for the users to perform the network recovery and troubleshooting processes easier and faster.

Easy Installation

With Auto-negotiation, the copper port can synchronize transmission speed and mode with peer devices. In addition, Auto-crossover on copper port eliminates circuit mismatch problem by auto-sensing the MDI/MDIX function; both features make installation easier to complete. Meanwhile, multiple configurations can be done via DIP switches to give users more management capability for better control over the devices.

Fiber protection accommodates and simplifies

The fiber protection design is capable of organizing and accommodating fiber cables for better cable preservation and significantly easier installation.

GbE Media Converter

Zyxel GbE Media Converter provides Gigabit-class traffic conversion capability. It's specially designed for active Ethernet ETTx deployment to ensure extra bandwidth and future-proof investment. Unique features like fiber protection and wall-mount design allow users to easily deploy the GbE Media Converter for fiber connectivity at customer premises.

The open Gigabit SFP slot accepts a wide range of SFP transceivers such as the latest bi-directional single fiber (BX) or traditional ones for maximum deployment flexibility. In addition, network span can also be extended easily with appropriate fiber transceivers.

  • 1000BASE-T RJ-45 to Gigabit fiber
  • Fiber protection mechanism
  • 1 mini-GBIC SFP slot for flexible choice of SFP
  • Multimode and singlemode supported
  • Up to 80 km reach (depends on mini-GBIC SFP)
  • Max. power consumption: 9.6 watt
