Managed Media Converters

NASHVILLE, TN—February 24th, 2011— Perle Systems, a global provider of advanced fiber to Ethernet and secure device networking solutions announces the availability of a Managed Media Converter Online Demo. Ethernet to Fiber Media Converters enable connections of UTP copper-based Ethernet equipment over a fiber optic link to take advantage of the benefits of fiber.  The online demo allows customers to get familiar with the extensive security, network integration and ease of use features that come standard with all Perle Managed Media Converters.

The live online demo allows visitors to navigate the management screens of a MCR-1900 chassis with an MCR-MGT management module and a number of managed media converters.  The provided User ID and Password is verified by a Cisco ACS TACACS+ authentication server.

Perle’s Managed Media Converters support all authentication, authorization and accounting (AAA) security services used in corporate networks, including TACACS+, RADIUS, LDAP, Kerberos, NIS and RSA. To further protect ID’s and passwords from someone ‘snooping’ on the network, management session data is protected through encryption via SSH and HTTPS connections

“Users expect that corporate firewalls, switches and routers are protected by AAA security services and session data encryption,” says Al Davies, Director of Product Management at Perle Systems. “It should be expected that this protection is also available in your Managed Media Converter.”

The live online demo can be found at https://www.perle.com/demo/Media-Converter.shtml.  Participants can operate the demo on their own or with assistance from a Perle specialist.

Perle offers over 300 Media Converter models to connect 10BaseT, Fast Ethernet and Gigabit to fiber. This enables Perle to offer a solution to connect any fiber and copper cable type and distance. All Perle Media Converters have an on-board microcontroller which deals with error detection and recovery. And, Perle Media Converters only use high-end components to ensure product reliability. Perle backs this up with a Lifetime Warranty to guarantee user satisfaction.
