Installed in a high density Perle media converter chassis, Perle's feature rich managed gigabit media converter module transparently connects copper to fiber. The Gigabit Ethernet to fiber converter provides an economical path to extend the distance of an existing network, the life of non-fiber based equipment, or the distance between two devices.
Network administrators can "see-everything" with Perle's advanced features such as auto-negotiation, auto-MDIX, link pass-through, fiber fault alert, and loopback. Along with a media converter management module in the chassis, configuration and monitoring of the copper and fiber ports can be performed. This allows for more efficient troubleshooting and less on-site maintenance. These cost and time saving features make Perle's managed Gigabit Ethernet converter module the smart choice for IT professionals.
Configuration mode selection
Select whether the module is to use the on-board DIP switches or enable the management module in the chassis to manage.
Low power mode
If enabled it sets the gigabit copper transceiver into "low power mode" which limits the strength of the signal.
Backup and restore
Provides fast and easy module replacement. Management module will always save a copy of the media converter configuration and will restore this configuration automatically to the media module when it is detected in the slot.
The media converter supports auto negotiation. The 1000 Base-T negotiates according to 802.3 clause 28 and 40. The media converter supports auto-negotiation of full duplex, half duplex, remote fault, full duplex pause, asymmetric pause and auto MDI-X.
Auto-MDIX with skew correction
Auto-MDIX detects the signaling on the 1000 Base-T interface to determine the type of cable connected and automatically configures the connection when enabled. The media converter can also correct for wires swapped within a pair.
Smart link pass-through
This feature can be used whether fiber auto-negotiation is enabled or disabled.
Pause signaling is an IEEE feature that temporarily suspends data transmission between two devices in the event that one of the devices becomes overwhelmed. The media converter supports pause negotiation on the 1000 Base-T fiber connection.
