Omnitron Systems iConverter Media Converter

The iConverter 10/100M2 Network Interface Device (NID) media converter provides 10Base-T or 100Base-Tx (10/100) to 100Base-Fx Fiber media conversion with integrated management. The 10/100M2 conforms to Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) fiber standards to support Fiber-to-the-X (FTTX) Metropolitan and Enterprise LAN networks. 10/100M2 media converters are used to provide managed copper demarcation points at the customer premises and network edge, offering Quality of Service and Bandwidth Control (rate-limiting) capabilities.The 10/100M2 utilizes the iConverter Operations, Administration and Maintenance (OAM) management system to remotely monitor network status, configure hardware parameters, generate statistic reports and receive a variety of user-specified traps. The iConverter management system reduces operational expenditures by keeping truck rolls to a minimum through remote provisioning and instant trap notification capabilities.The iConverter 10/100M2 supports Port Access, enhanced Bandwidth Control, Port MIB statistics, 2,048 byte frames and Layer 2 Control Protocol (L2CP) Policy Control.The 10/100M2 features multiple, user-selectable link fault detection modes for quick fault detection and isolation. These modes operate independently of the network management and monitor the state of the cabling hardware:Link-Segmentation (LS) : The normal (default) mode where the UTP and fiber ports establish their links to other connected devices independently of each other.Link-Propagation (LP) : In this mode (also known as Link-Loss-Carry-Forward) , a link-out from the UTP port is generated only when a link-in to the fiber port is present, and a link-out from the fiber port is generated only when a link-in to the UTP port is present. In LP mode, a cable or link fault is propagated in a domino fashion to downstream or upstream connected equipment, enabling rapid fault detection.Asymmetrical Link Propagation (ALP) : ALP has two modes of operation: copper-to-fiber and fiber-to...

Omnitron Systems iConverter Media Converter Review

I am very pleased with the Omnitron Systems iConverter Media Converter. I use it all the time. I wish that I had this fiber optic transceivers sooner.
