SFP slots support Fiber to Fiber, Copper to Fiber or Copper to Copper Media Conversion
NASHVILLE, December 7th, 2017 — Perle Systems, a global manufacturer of advanced Ethernet over Fiber hardware today announced six new variants of 10 Gigabit Media Converters aimed at consumers who need flexibility in their network configurations.
Perle 10G Media Converters transparently connects 10 Gigabit copper to multimode or single mode fiber. Each 10GbE Media Converter comes with pluggable transceiver ports that support fiber to fiber, copper to fiber or copper to copper media conversion. The new 10GR Media Converters additionally support two new features for ultimate network flexibility and growth.
10/100/1000/2500/10000 rate conversion can be enabled to automatically detect Ethernet port speed and do a rate conversion between the two ports if the Ethernet speed is different. This is ideal in scenarios where disparate networks need to be connected.
Cut-Through Forwarding can be configured for environments where throughput speed is critical. This will increase the media converter’s throughput and reduce latency by performing packet forwarding in the most efficient manner possible. Forwarding of a packet will begin as soon as the destination address is processed.
John Feeney, COO at Perle Systems comments,
We want our customers to be able to maximise their network capabilities. As networks evolve, Perle products play a pivotal role in providing the most flexible connectivity solutions with high processing power.
Perle offers over 876 models of Managed and Unmanaged Media Converters to transmit 10BaseT, Fast Ethernet, Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet over fiber. All Perle Media Converters use high-end components and have an on-board microcontroller to deal with link error detection and recovery. Perle also supplies a Lifetime Warranty as a standard feature across all major product lines.
