Perle’s advanced line of Managed Gigabit SFP Media Converters, transparently connects Gigabit copper to SFP for multimode or single mode fiber. The pluggable fiber optics port allows for flexible network configurations using SFP transceivers supplied by Perle, Cisco or other manufacturers of MSA compliant SFPs.
While providing an economical means of extending your existing copper based network connection, these media converters are SNMP manageable to enable complete control and status viewing of your fiber links. Perle Gigabit SFP Managed Media Converters come standard with extensive cost and time saving features. In addition, a lifetime warranty and free worldwide technical support make Perle's Managed Gigabit SFP Converters the smart choice for IT professionals.
|Configuration Mode selection||Select whether to use the on-board DIP switches or the management software for mode selection|
|DIP switch settings||View hardware DIP switch settings|
|Low power mode||If enabled it sets the Gigabit copper transceiver into “low power mode” which limits the strength of the signal. ( for shorter cable lengths ). Default is disabled|
|Port Control||Enable or disable individual fiber or copper port on the converter|
|Copper Port Status||
|Auto-Negotiation (802.3ab)||The media converter supports auto
negotiation. The 1000Base-X fiber interface negotiates
according to 802.3 clause 37. The 1000Base-T
negotiates according to 802.3 clause 28 and 40.
The 1000Base-X will link up with its partner
after the highest common denominator (HCD) is
reached and the copper has linked up with its
partner. The 1000Base-X will continue to cycle
through negotiation transmitting a remote fault
of offline (provided this is enabled through
the switch setting) until the copper is linked
up and the HCDs match.
The media converter supports auto-negotiation of full duplex, half duplex, remote fault, full duplex pause, asymmetric pause and Auto MDI-X.
|Auto-MDIX with Skew Correction||Auto-MDIX (automatic medium-dependant interface
crossover) detects the signaling on the 1000Base-T
interface to determine the type of cable connected
(straight-through or crossover) and automatically
configures the connection when enabled. The media
converter can also correct for wires swapped
within a pair.
The media converter will adjust for up to 64ns of delay skew between the 1000Base-T pairs.
|Smart Link Pass-Through||When the Link Mode switch is placed into Smart Link Pass-Through mode, the 1000Base-T port will reflect the state of the 1000Base-X media converter port. This feature can be used whether fiber auto-negotiation is enabled or disabled.|
|Fiber Fault Alert||With Fiber Fault Alert the state of the 1000Base-X receiver is passed to the 1000Base-X transmitter. This provides fault notification to the partner device attached to the 1000Base-X interface of the media converter. If the 1000Base-X transmitter is off as a result of this fault it will be turned on periodically to allow the condition to clear should the partner device on the 1000Base-X be using a similar technique. This eliminates the possibility of lockouts that occur with some media converters. Applies only when fiber auto-negotiation is disabled.|
|Pause (IEEE 802.3x)||Pause signaling is an IEEE feature that temporarily suspends data transmission between two devices in the event that one of the devices becomes overwhelmed. The media converter supports pause negotiation on the 1000Base-T fiber connection and 1000Base-X fiber connection. Select Symmetrical, asymmetrical TX or asymmetrical RX|
|Duplex||Full and half duplex operation supported.|
|Jumbo Packets||Transparent to jumbo packets up to 10KB-default. Jumbo packet support can be disabled.|
|VLAN||Transparent to VLAN tagged packets. Default Jumbo packet can be disabled.|
|Remote Loopback||Capable of performing a loopback on the 1000Base-X fiber interface.|
Enterprise and carrier-grade security is available through the support of strong authentication systems such as TACACS+, RADIUS and LDAP. Secure in-band access is assured via SNMPv3, SSH CLI and secure HTTPS Internet browser.
|Telnet / SSH CLI access||In-band command line access via Telnet or SSH application|
|Internet Browser access||
|Console port CLI access||Out-of-band command line access via Cisco compatible RJ45 serial console port using common “rolled” CAT5 cable.
Console port can be enabled ( default ) or disabled
|Concurrent management sessions||Run multiple management sessions simultaneously for multiple users|
|Inactivity timeout||Protect secure management sessions by setting an inactivity timeout value|
|Alert event reporting||Alert level events are stored in the local event log and sent as:
|Advanced IP feature set||
|Advanced Management User Authentication with primary and secondary server support||
|Advanced Management User Authorization and Accounting||
|Access Control List||An access control list can be created which can filter out only those workstations that are authorized to access the management resources. Filter on IP and/or Ethernet MAC addresses|
|Network Services Filter||Enable only those network services on the management module that are allowed on your network ( Telnet, SSH, HTTP, HTTPS, SNMP )|
|Firmware download||Update the latest level firmware for management and media converter modules via TFTP or PerleVIEW|
|Media Converter Module Indicators|
|Power / TST||This green LED is turned on when power is applied to the media converter. Otherwise it is off. The LED will blink when in Loopback test mode.|
|Fiber link on / Receive activity (LKF)||This green LED is operational only when power is applied. The LED is on when the 1000Base-X link is on and flashes with a 50% duty cycle when data is received. The LED will slow blink when the 1000Base-X interface has been taken down as a result of a fault on the 1000Base-T interface.|
|Copper link on / Receive activity (LKC)||This green LED is operational only when power is applied. The LED is on when the 1000Base-T link is on and flashes with a 50% duty cycle when data is received. The LED will slow blink when the 1000Base-T interface has been taken down as a result of a fault on the 1000Base-T interface.|

|Auto-Negotiation||Enabled (Default) - The media converter uses 802.3u Auto-negotiation on the 10/100/1000Base-T interface. It is set to advertise full duplex, half duplex, pause and remote fault capabilities.
Disabled - The media converter sets the port according to the position of the speed and duplex switches.
|Link Mode||Link Mode provides a transparency to the state of the copper link allowing for simplified trouble shooting from the devices connected to the media converter.
Normal (Default - Up)
With Fiber Auto Negotiation enabled when the copper link goes down the 1000Base-X link is brought down. The 1000Base-X link will advertise Remote Fault (Link Fault).
With Fiber Auto Negotiation disabled the state of the copper link has no effect on the 1000Base-X link.
Smart Link Pass Through (Down)
With Fiber Auto-Negotiation disabled the behavior is as follows. When the copper receiver is off the 1000Base-X transmitter will be turned off. When the 1000Base-X receiver goes off the copper transmitter will be turned off.
|Pause||When Fiber Auto Negotiation is disabled Pause should only be enabled when all devices connected to the media converter support pause.
Enabled(Default) - The Media converter will advertise Pause capable, Asymmetric pause not needed during Auto-Negotiation.
Disabled - The Media converter will advertise that it does not have Pause capability during Auto-Negotiation.
|Fiber Fault Alert||The Fiber Fault Alert switch has meaning when Auto-Negotiation is disabled
Enabled (Default - Up)
When the 1000Base-X receiver is off the 1000Base-X transmitter is turned off. Periodically the 1000Base-X receiver will be turned on for a short period to allow the condition to clear if the 1000Base-X link partner is using a similar feature.
|Duplex||Full (Default-Up) - The media converter will advertise Full Duplex Capable, Half Duplex Capable.
AUTO (Down) -The Media converter will advertise Full Duplex Not Capable, Half Duplex Capable.
|Remote Loopback||The media converter can perform a loopback on the 1000Base-X fiber interface.
(Default - Up)
