The IE-iMcV-ModeConverter is an SNMP manageable module that allows network operators to incorporate multiple fiber types and wavelengths within a network. It installs in the modular, SNMP-manageable iMediaChassis series and in the unmanaged MediaChassis series.
The IE-iMcV-ModeConverters are protocol-independent with dual SFP ports which can provide a single conversion between different wavelengths or single-mode and multimode fiber, single-mode to single-mode fiber or multimode to single-strand single-mode fiber. The IE-iMcVModeConverter modules support a variety of user configurable features such as LinkLoss and variable speed SFPs. Additionally, since the IE-iMcV-ModeConverter is an Industrial Equipment device (IE), the unit operates in environments that demand extended operating temperatures.
The hot-swappable nature of the SFPs and the numerous fiber modes and types that are available allow for easy configuration and future upgrading as network demands evolve. The IE-iMcV-ModeConverter requires two MSA compliant fiber optic SFP modules (sold seperately) to operate. IMC Networks offers a full range of compatible SFPs. For more information, go to the IMC Networks SFP product page.
In this example, both single-mode and multi-mode fiber are deployed with the IE-iMcV-ModeConverter conveniently and seamlessly located at the origin and destination. The extended temperature range is ideal for the manufacturing location, housed in the unmanaged MediaChassis/1 converting between single-mode and multi-mode fiber for transmission at a distance to another IE-iMcV-ModeConverter, housed in a SNMP-managed iMediachassis/20 along with other modules.
