Installed in a high density Perle media converter chassis, Perle's line of feature rich managed 10/100 rate converting to fiber media converters transparently connect 10/100 Ethernet to fiber. The 10/100 converters provide an economical path to extend the distance of an existing network, the life of non-fiber based equipment, or the distance between two devices.
Unknown multicast frame filtering
When enabled, multicast frames with an unknown destination address are not allowed to egress the port.
Unknown unicast frame filtering
When enabled, unicast frames with an unknown destination address are not allowed to egress the port.
When enabled, provides the ability to restrict port to one-way traffic flow. Used in applications such as unidirectional video broadcasting as well as providing security for Ethernet connections in accessible public areas.
Can manually set auto or MDIX on the copper port via on-board strap or via the management card. Auto-MDIX detects the signaling on the UTP interface to determine the type of cable connected and automatically configures the connection when enabled. With Auto-MDIX enabled, either a straight-through or crossover type cable can be used to connect the media converter to the device on the other end of the cable.
10BaseT Extended distance
Normal/extended - default normal. By configuring as "extended", the 10baseT receiver sensitivity is increased providing the possibility of an 10BaseT connection greater than 100m.
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.
Detailed port statisticsProduct Highlights
To assist in troubleshooting copper and fiber links, an extensive list of ingress and egress counters for both copper and fiber ports are available. These statistics can be viewed locally via the management module or from a central SNMP NMS on the network.
