- Converts 10-, 100-, or 1000-Mbps copper to 1000-Mbps single-mode fiber operating at 1310- and 1550-nm wavelengths.
- Works together with the LGC5942C-R2 to send and receive over a single strand of fiber.
- True Layer 2 media conversion from copper to fiber or fiber to fiber.
- Works with High-Density Media Converter System II Chassis.
High-Density Media Converter System II Layer 2 Modules, 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX/1000BASE-T to 1000BASE-LX, belong to a large family of modular media converter and communications options that provide an exceptional range of choices for your managed enterprise network. With more than 100 modules to choose from, this system can adapt to even the most demanding network configurations. All media converter modules are hot-swappable-you never need to power down a chassis to change a module.
High-Density Media Converter System II is particularly well suited for network-extension applications, offering a wide range of hot-swappable media converter modules for network extension over fiber. Additionally, the system offers a range of modules such as T1/E1, VDSL, and ATM that are not usually available with chassis-based media converter systems.
Unlike Layer 1 media converters, which only convert one Ethernet media type to another, Layer 2 modules for the High-Density Media Converter System II are true switches-they actively store, filter, and forward Ethernet packets like any other MAC-layer switch.
Layer 2 media converters increase network efficiency and reduce network overhead, significantly increasing data throughput.
Because Layer 2 media converters are also switches, they incorporate 10/100 or 10/100/1000 ports in contast to the single-speed ports of Layer 1 converters. You can set the RJ-45 ports for autonegotiation or set them for 10-, 100-, or 1000-Mbps speed as well as for half- or full-duplex. The fiber port can be set for half- or full-duplex, too.
The 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX/1000BASE-T to 1000BASE-ssLX module featured here enables you to send Gigabit Ethernet at distances of up to 40 kilometers over a single fiber strand. Maximum fiber use plus autosensing 10/100/1000 ports make this an extremely versatile choice for your fiber infrastructure.
Twisted-pair ports feature autocrossover ports to eliminate the worry of whether to use straight- or cross-pinned cabling. This built-in MDI/MDI-X function determines automatically whether the converter has to cross over between the four pairs on the twisted-pair port’s RJ-45 connector.
This module has LinkLoss™, which notifies you of "silent failures" on copper-to-fiber links. LinkLoss enables you to troubleshoot network problems just by looking at the media converter’s Link LED-the link status of the fiber segment will always be reflected by the twisted-pair segment so you're quickly informed of fiber problems. The module also features link fault pass-through (LFPT), which automatically shuts down a link if its link partner fails.
