Description: Omnitron iConverter 2-Module Chassis - Modular expansion base
Mfr Part #: 8231-0-W
The iConverter 2-Module Power Chassis is a compact, versatile chassis featuring a single internal universal AC or 18-60VDC power supply. The chassis provides housing for all iConverter media converters and switch modules.
The 2-Module Chassis features a backplane that enables sharing of Ethernet data between two installed iConverter modules that are equipped with Ethernet backplane ports. This enables the chassis to support a variety of networking configurations. Installing an iConverter copper-to-fiber module and a four-port switch module provides a fiber uplink and five 10/100 user ports. A fiber-to-fiber module can be used to provide an access point in a fiber ring, supporting four 10/100 user ports.
In Enterprise networks, the 2-Module Chassis can be used to extend a fiber network connection across a campus or to add a node to an existing fiber ring. The 2-Module Chassis provides a carrier-grade solution; combining media conversion with a managed, compact edge switch.
In service provider networks, installing an iConverter Network Interface Device (NID) plug-in module and a four-port switch module provides a securely managed Carrier Ethernet demarcation for one or more User-to-Network Interfaces (UNI). This configuration provides an MEF certified deployment supporting advanced Operation, Administration and Maintenance (OAM) features.
Equipped with an iConverter management module or a module with integrated management, the 2-Module Chassis provides a securely managed solution capable of supporting advanced Ethernet services for Enterprise and Service Provider metro networks. It can be remotely managed via IP-based SNMP or Telnet.
Modules with integrated management, such as the iConverter 10/100M2, installed in the 2-Module Chassis can also provide remote management for the configuration and monitoring of the installed modules. This provides a flexible solution for Enterprise or Service Provider applications where a securely managed edge device is required.
