Each media and rate converter line card in the AT-CM20xx series features a 100T twisted pair port and a 100FX optical port. The twisted pair has an RJ-45 connector and a maximum operating distance of 100 meters (328 feet) when connected to an Ethernet or Fast Ethernet device. They operate in full or half-duplex mode, and allow you to build an affordable network, avoiding the cost of terminating fiber cables. The AT-CV101 fiber optic port has a multimode fiber ST connector and a maximum operating distance of 2km (1.24 miles).
Extend the distance of Ethernet
Each CV10x series media converter line card features a 100TX twisted pair port and a 100FX optical port. The twisted pair port has an RJ-45 connector. Depending on the model, the media converter card can operate in multi-mode fiber over various distances. These cards can operate at half and full-duplex.
The CV10x series of line cards can be installed in the complete range of Converteon chassis', allowing them to be deployed in a stand-alone fashion, or in a multi-slot chassis. When deployed in a multi-slot chassis, the line cards can be unmanaged, or managed with the inclusion of at least one management card in the chassis. In unmanaged mode, the line cards can be easily configured using DIP switches, whereas in a managed chassis, all the configuration can be performed remotely.
MissingLink and Smart MissingLink (SML)Product Highlights
The MissingLink (ML) feature allows the ports on the media converter blade to pass the 'Link' status of their connections to each other. When the media converter detects a problem with one of the ports, such as the loss of connection to a node, it shuts down the connection to the other port, thus notifying the node that the connection has been lost. Smart MissingLink (SML) is when a link is lost on a port, the link LED of the port which still has a valid connection to its end node starts to blink. These features allow network administrators to quickly troubleshoot network problems.
