IMCV-MediaLinX Series - 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Media Converter
Satisfying today’s networking needs while preparing for tomorrow’s cabling requirements can make designing and installing the physical layer of networks a daunting task. The decreasing cost of fiber optic cabling and switching equipment makes all-optical LANs the obvious choice when future-proofing network equipment. Replacing legacy equipment and wiring infrastructure is a costly choice. Managed media conversion allows implementation of new technologies on existing networks, while monitoring all connections, to keep networks running and up-to-date.
B&B Electronics offers a wide range of SNMP-managed Ethernet copper to fiber media converters, with a choice of fixed rate or rate conversion capabilities. The “iMcV-“ modules also include troubleshooting features and LEDs to assist in network diagnostics as well as make isolating cable breaks easier. The iMcV-MediaLinX and IE-iMcV-MediaLinX also features Link Fault Pass-Through. In addition, the IE-Module provides support for Config Control if using SNMP management.
All converters feature an RJ-45 copper port and a fiber port, with a choice of SC, ST or SFP (IE-iMcV-MediaLinX only) connectors, and are hot-swappable.
Rate converters employ Auto Negotiation functionality on the twisted pair port for plug-and-play operation, or they can be manually configured for the desired speed and duplex mode.
