The iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II intelligent media converter connects a
Host/Remote Ethernet network over a fiber optic or CAT 5 copper connection.
It combines media conversion with an advanced-feature set for network
management and troubleshooting, including OAM (Operations, Administration
and Maintenance), Extra-Tagging and EtherType control functionality. With
the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II, administrators can observe the end-points over
the fiber segment between them, as a single management entity. Bandwidth
scalability and support for MIBs II makes this modular device a versatile
gigabit solution, now available as a single wide module.
iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II allows for remote configuration and alerts
administrators to any potential problems on the long-haul fiber run,
provides vital information on link condition and reports data traffic
statistics. In addition to the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II's support for
Host/Remote environments, the product also has built-in support for the
Unified Management Agent (UMA). With UMA, the central location can manage
all Host/Remote pairs installed in an iMediaChassis with the single IP
address of the chassis.
Optional single- or dual-SFP port versions or all copper (RJ-45) port
versions are also available for complete network flexibility. The
iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II SFP requires one or two MSA-compliant fiber optic SFP
modules (sold separately) to operate. [Copper SFPs are not supported.]
