IE-IMCV-T1-Mux/4+ Ethernet - Modular, Managed, Four T1 Plus Data Extension Over Fiber
The IE-iMcV-T1-Mux/4 is a managed modular media converter, installed as a Host/Remote pair, that transports four independent T1 lines over a single or dual fiber optic line. The module is ideal for applications requiring TDM extension, such as remote office PABX connectivity, with support for a full bandwidth 10/100BaseT Ethernet connection over the same optical link.
The iMcV-T1-Mux/4 detects, Ethernet, T1 and fiber LOS events as well as degraded lines with full LED indications including a Remote Alarm Indicator (RAI) over the fiber link.
Fiber redundancy (1+1) on removable SFP modules offers the enhanced reliability of a protected fiber link while supporting the complete range of optical types and distances. The 1+1 protection system automatically switches to the best fiber line within 50 milliseconds, should one line become impaired or fail.
The IE-iMcV-T1-Mux/4 features an independent serial link (RS-232) which is carried over the same fiber link(s), and can be used for transporting serial traffic from other equipment located at the remote point of presence (POP) back to the central office. The RS-232 console port is useful for local monitoring and configuration of the unit by technical support personnel.
