Omnitron Systems SFP to SFP Protocol-Transparent Media Converter and WDM Transponder
The iConverter xFF is a protocol-transparent media converter, and is available as a compact, unmanaged standalone unit or a managed chassis plug-in module. The iConverter xFF provides reliable and cost-effective conversion between different wavelengths, multimode and single-mode, and dual and single-fiber.
The iConverter xFF operates as a protocol and rate-transparent device, supporting Small Form Pluggable (SFP) transceivers with data rates from 1Mbps to 8.50Gbps. The xFF supports a variety of network protocols, including Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, SONET (OC-3/12/48), SDH (STM-1/4/16), 1x/2x/4x/8x Fibre Channel and Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI).
The iConverter xFF supports multimode and single-mode dual fiber; and single-mode single-fiber SFP transceivers. SFPs allow adaptability to different fiber types, distances and wavelengths, providing maximum flexibility across a variety of network architectures and topologies. The xFF media converter can utilize a variety of SFPs for different wavelengths and distances, reducing costs and simplifying inventories.
SFP transceivers enable the xFF to operate as a Coarse Wave Division Multiplexing (CWDM) transponder, which converts an optical signal from legacy fiber equipment to a specific CWDM wavelength. CWDM technology increases the bandwidth capacity of the fiber infrastructure by overlaying multiple signals, each using a different wavelength, over an existing fiber link.
There is no configuration required with the plug-and-play iConverter xFF. Connect the fiber cables to the appropriate interface and the installation is complete. The xFF features user-selectable Link Propagate and Remote Fault Detection modes to facilitate quick fault detection, isolation and reporting.
The hot-swappable, plug-in module can be mounted in a 19 or 5-Module chassis with redundant AC and DC power supplies. It can also be mounted in a 2-Module AC or DC powered chassis, or in a 1-Module chassis with AC or DC power input.
The standalone iConverter xFF is an unmanaged wall-mount unit. The wall-mount models are DC powered and are available with an external AC to DC power adapter, or a terminal connector for DC power.
