|Ethernet to Fiber in a Campus Network|
The use of chassis-based media converters is a cost effective means in providing fiber connectivity in a campus network. By consolidating Ethernet to fiber conversion in a rack mount media converter chassis, various types of fiber links can be brought into a single wiring closet platform. This simplifies deployment and maintenance and also provides a scalable means to grow your network as needed.
|Extend Ethernet across Twisted Pair or Coaxial Wire|
In this enterprise campus application, up to 18 Managed Ethernet Extenders are installed in the MCR1900 Media Converter Chassis. The 19th slot in the chassis is filled the MCR-MGT Management Module. All Ethernet Extenders in the chassis are managed by SNMP, Telnet or an internet browser interface. By consolidating Ethernet Extension in a rack mount chassis, various types of links can be brought into a single wiring closet platform. This simplifies deployment and maintenance and also provides a scalable means to grow your network as needed.
Distances of up to 3 km ( 10,000 feet ) can be achieved over twisted pair Cat 5,6 or 7 cable.
You can also install along with Ethernet to fiber media converter modules and extend the Ethernet connection over fiber for greater distance.
|Managed Ethernet over Fiber Links|
Manage your multimode to single mode or multimode to multimode link with an MCR200 chassis housing a media converter and management module. Ideal for use in managed networks with low density fiber applications, this Managed Media Converter is connected across a fiber link to a remote media converter. The copper or fiber link on the managed standalone unit can provide vital information and status to network management tools such as SNMP.
|High Density Fiber Distribution from UTP Switch Equipment at Corporate Headquarters|
In this enterprise campus application, up to 18 Perle CM-100 Fast Ethernet to Fiber Media Converters are installed in the MCR1900 Media Converter Chassis. The 19th slot in the chassis is filled the MCR-MGT Management Module. All media converts in the chassis are managed by SNMP, Telnet or an internet browser interface. A remote fiber enabled Ethernet switch is connected directly to the central MCR1900 Chassis. A standalone Media Converter converts the fiber to Ethernet in a fiber-to-desktop application. Another standalone Fiber Media Converter is connected to a remote office Ethernet switch. In all cases, multimode or single-mode fiber can be used. Fiber links can be extended up to 120km using single-mode fiber.
