    High Density Media Converter System II Layer 2 Module, 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX/1000BASE-T to 1000BASE-LX, Single-Mode Long, 1550-nm, 70 km, SC

  • Further Details

    High-Density Media Converter System II is particularly well suited for network-extension applications, offering a wide range of hot-swappable media converter modules for network extension over fiber. Additionally, the system offers a range of modules such as T1/E1, VDSL, and ATM that are not usually available with chassis-based media converter systems.

    Use a pair of Layer 2 Switching Modules to extend your network across a fiber link.

    Unlike Layer 1 media converters, which only convert one Ethernet media type to another, Layer 2 modules for the High-Density Media Converter System II are true switches—they actively store, filter, and forward Ethernet packets like any other MAC-layer switch.

    Layer 2 media converters increase network efficiency and reduce network overhead, significantly increasing data throughput.

    Because Layer 2 media converters are also switches, they incorporate 10/100 or 10/100/1000 ports in contast to the single-speed ports of Layer 1 converters. You can set the RJ-45 ports for autonegotiation or set them for 10-, 100-, or 1000-Mbps speed as well as for half- or full-duplex. The fiber port can be set for half- or full-duplex, too.


    The 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX/1000BASE-T to 1000BASE-LX modules featured here are ideal for longer Gigabit fiber runs. They achieve blazing Gigabit throughput at distances of up to 70 kilometers over single-mode fiber cable. The copper port supports Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, and Gigabit Ethernet and autonegotiates speed and duplex.

    Twisted-pair ports feature autocrossover ports to eliminate the worry of whether to use straight- or cross-pinned cabling. This built-in MDI/MDI-X function determines automatically whether the converter has to cross over between the four pairs on the twisted-pair port's RJ-45 connector.

    The modules include a LinkLoss™ feature, which notifies you of "silent failures" on copper-to-fiber links. With LinkLoss, a fault on the fiber port is mirrored to the Ethernet twisted-pair port. If the fiber link is lost at the converter, the converter disables the twisted-pair Link LED so you can see at a glance that the link is down.

    Additionally, the module features Link Fault Pass Through (LFPT), which is a troubleshooting feature that combines TX and FX LinkLoss from the local and remote devices. With LFPT enabled, when a link fault is sensed, it will pass through the device at each segment. In this way, both switches are alerted to a fault in the line, and they will send out traps. The SNMP server receives the traps and takes appropriate action to remedy the situation (usually by alerting a network administrator).
