Description: Perle SMI-1110-SFP - Fiber media converter - GigE - 10Base-T, 100Base-TX, 1000Base-T, 1000Base-X - RJ-45 / SFP (mini-GBIC)
Mfr Part #: 05070774
Perle's managed media converter provides transparent and reliable 10/100/1000 Ethernet to fiber connections. While providing an economical means of extending your existing copper based network connection, these media converter is SNMP manageable to enable complete control and status viewing of your fiber links. Perle 10/100/1000 managed media converter comes standard with extensive cost and time saving features.
- 10/100/1000Base-T to 1000Base-X fiber media converter
- Connects 10/100 devices to Gigabit backbone
- Extend network distances
- Media converter features - smart link pass-through, fiber fault alert, auto-MDIX and loopback
- Unidirectional Ethernet
When enabled, it provides the ability to restrict port to one-way traffic flow. It is used in applications such as unidirectional video broadcasting as well as providing security for Ethernet connections in accessible public areas.
Auto-MDIX (automatic medium-dependant interface crossover) detects the signaling on the copper Ethernet interface to determine the type of cable connected and automatically configures the connection when enabled. The media converter can also correct for wires swapped within a pair.
- Auto copper downshift
Automatically detects a 2-pair cable environment and downshifts operation of the link to 100 Mb/s. Configure the number of times that the PHY will attempt to establish a successful Gigabit link before attempting to "downshift" as an auto-negotiating 10/100 device.
- Smart link pass-through
When the link mode switch is placed into smart link pass-through mode, the copper Ethernet port will reflect the state of the 1000Base-X media converter port. This feature can be used whether fiber auto-negotiation is enabled or disabled.
- Fiber fault alert
With fiber fault alert the state of the 1000Base-X receiver is passed to the 1000Base-X transmitter. This provides fault notification to the partner device attached to the 1000Base-X interface of the media converter. If the 1000Base-X transmitter is off as a result of this fault it will be turned on periodically to allow the condition to clear should the partner device on the 1000Base-X be using a similar technique. This eliminates the possibility of lockouts that occur with some media converters.
Pause signaling is an IEEE feature that temporarily suspends data transmission between two devices in the event that one of the devices becomes overwhelmed. The media converter supports pause negotiation on the 10/100/1000Base-T connection and 1000Base-X fiber connection.
