1000T to 1000LX(SC) 20km
Using multi-mode and single-mode fiber-optic cabling,Allied Telesyn’s AT-MC1004 and AT-MC1005 series of Gigabit Ethernet media converters can extend network segments by up to 70km by converting 1000T copper connections to 1000SX or LX connections.
Although the expense of Gigabit Ethernet connections is dropping—in part a result of lower-cost copper Gigabit network adapters—the distance limitations of copper cabling make fiber segments a
necessity in most networks.Fortunately,small,comparatively inexpensive copper to fiber Gigabit Ethernet media converters present a simple and
cost-effective way of connecting Gigabit Ethernet LANs over extended distances.
To aid installation these media converters support an auto-sensing MDI/MDIX port,allowing the media converter to connect directly with either a switch,PC adapter,or other Gigabit Ethernet
device,via a standard cable.
STAND-ALONE OR RACK-MOUNT OPERATION
The AT-MC1004 and AT-MC1005 series Gigabit Ethernet media converters are powered by an external power supply for use in standalone
applications.When multiple media converters are in use,a low cost rack-mount chassis can accommodate up to 12 stand-alone devices,enabling a single internal power supply to power all the converters. In critical applications,the rack-mount chassis can accommodate a second load-sharing internal power supply.
The MissingLink™ feature allows the ports on the media converter to convey the status of their links. When the media converter detects a problem with a port—such as the loss of connection to a node—it shuts down the connection,thereby notifying the node that the connection has been lost. The value of this network monitoring and fault
notification is that some hubs and switches are configured to take action in the event of the loss of connection on a port.In some cases,the unit is configured either to seek a redundant path or alert the network administrator of the problem.
