Installed in a high density MCR1900 Media Converter Chassis, the Perle CM-10GT-XFPH Manged Media Converter Module transparently connects 10GBase-T Ethernet links over multimode or single mode fiber. Each 10GbE Media Converter comes with one RJ45 10GBase-T port and an empty slot for one XFP module. These media converters can be used in an unmanaged environment or can be SNMP manageable to enable complete control and status viewing of your fiber links. 10GBASE-T Media Converter Modules are also available for unmanaged networks, or for low to mid-density application check out the stand alone SMI-10GT Managed Media Converter.
Copper to Fiber conversion is achieved by inserting an XFP fiber transceiver that supports multimode and single-mode fiber, including CWDM/DWDM wavelengths. Copper to copper is achieved by inserting XFP 10Gbase-CX4 transceivers.
The empty transceiver ports on the CM-10GT-XFPH Manged Media Converter Module allows for flexible network configurations to meet any requirement using a variety of MSA compliant XFPs. You can use this products to convert:
- 10GBase-T (RJ45) to XFP
- 10GBase-T (RJ45) to 10GBase-CX4 (XFP)
Perle 10 Gigabit Ethernet to Fiber Converters provide an economical path to extend the distance of an existing 10GbE link. Network Administrators can “see-everything” with Perle’s advanced features such as Smart Link Pass-Through, Fiber Fault Alert, a built-in Link Test capability and Loopback. Along with a Media Converter Management Module in the chassis, configuration and monitoring of the copper and fiber ports can be performed. This allows for more efficient troubleshooting and less on-site maintenance. These cost and time saving features, along with a lifetime warranty and free worldwide technical support, make CM-10GT-XFPH Managed Media Converter Modules the smart choice for IT professionals. This product is also available for managed networks with AAA Security.
For those environments requiring a medium to large-scale deployment of media converters, a centralized platform that simplifies the configuration, administration, monitoring, and troubleshooting of Perle Managed Media Converters is recommended. PerleVIEW Device Management software is a multi-user, Windows server-based application that delivers this level of Enterprise-grade solution.
CM-10GT-XFPH Managed Media Converter Features
|Smart Link Pass-Through||When Smart Link Pass-Through is enabled (default), each port will reflect the state of its port peer. In this mode, if a link loss is detected on one port, the transmit signal on the other port is disabled “passing through” the state of the failed link. This enables managed switches and other devices to report link failures to their network NMS.
When Smart Link Pass-Through is disabled, if a link loss is detected on one port the transmit signal remains enabled on the other port.
|Fiber Fault Alert||With Fiber Fault Alert the state of the 10 Gigabit Ethernet receiver is passed to the transmitter. This provides fault notification to the partner device attached to the 10G Ethernet interface of the media converter.|
|Green Ethernet||Utilizes Green Ethernet energy saving technology based on industry standards such as:
|Built-in Link Test||When enabled, the built-in packet generator transmits Ethernet test frames to its 10 Gigabit Ethernet peer. The remote media converter will auto-detect the test frames and loopback the test frames. Any frames received in error, will cause the Power, LK1 and LK2 LEDs to illuminate in a specific combination to identify the error. During the test different bit test patterns will be utilized every 5 seconds ensuring a thorough link test.|
|Test Mode Auto-detect||When enabled through the management interface, the remote media converter will enter test mode automatically when requested by its central site peer. This virtually eliminates unnecessary truck rolls to a remote site when diagnosing a link failure.|
|EDC Mode Control||Electronic Dispersion Compensation (EDC) is an algorithmic method used to compensate for optical dispersion that occurs on high speed 10 Gigabit links. EDC mode settings are automatically configured by the media converter based on the information retrieved from the XFP module. This will enable proper operation for extended multimode 10GBase-LRM as well as active or passive copper cabling.|
|Module Temperature Protection||Protects your DOM/DMI capable XFP module by monitoring its internal temperature and will automatically shut down the XFP if the module is operating above its maximum temperature threshold.|
|High Power Level 4 XFPs||High powered Level 4 XFPs.|
|Jumbo Packets||Transparent to Jumbo Frames with a maximum MTU size of 10,024 bytes|
|VLAN||Transparent to VLAN tagged packets.|
|Remote Loopback||Capable of performing a loopback on the 10 Gigabit interface. In this mode, all frames received on the port in loopback mode will be transmitted back. This provides users with the capability of utilizing their own in-house test generators for testing the link.|
Additional features available when installed along with a Media Converter Management Module in a Perle MCR1900 Media Converter Chassis
|Configuration Mode selection||Select whether the module is to use the on-board DIP switches or enable the management module in the chassis to manage.|
|Module DIP switch settings||View hardware DIP switch settings.|
|Port Control||Enable or disable individual fiber ports on the module.|
|Fiber Port Status||
|Backup and Restore||Provides fast and easy module replacement. Management module will always save a copy of the media converter configuration and will restore this configuration automatically to the media module when it is detected in the slot.|
|Manage Tune-able DWDM XFP modules||Select transceiver ITU 50GHz center wavelengths and channel numbering on tune-able XFP transceivers.|
|Power||10GT to XFP|
|Maximum Power Consumption (watts)||15*|
|Power / TST||
|Link Mode||When the Link Mode is enabled (default), each port will reflect the state of its port peer using Smart Link Pass-Through. In this mode, if a link loss is detected on one port, the transmit signal on the other port is disabled “passing through” the state of the failed link. This enables managed switches and other devices to report link failures to their network NMS.
When the switch is in the down position, Smart Link Pass-Through is disabled. If a link loss is detected on one port, the transmit signal remains enabled on the other port.
|Fiber Fault Alert||
Enabled (Default – Up)
With Fiber Fault Alert the state of the 10 Gigabit ethernet receiver is passed to the transmitter. This provides fault notification to the partner device attached to the 10G ethernet interface of the media converter
|Test Mode||Through the use of three dip switches the unit, and its peer, can be placed into a link test mode which will verify the integrity of the link through the use of its built-in link test generator. The unit can also be placed into a simple line loopback.|
|EEE Green Ethernet||When enabled (default), the media converter will operate as an IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) compliant device.|
|Loopback||Capable of performing a loopback on the 10 Gigabit interface. In this mode, all frames received on the port in loopback mode will be transmitted back. This provides users with the capability of utilizing their own in-house test generators for testing the link.|
