Description: Perle SMI-1110-S2ST160 - Fiber media converter - GigE - 10Base-T, 1000Base-ZX, 100Base-TX, 1000Base-T - RJ-45 / ST single-mode - up to 160 km - 1550 nm
Mfr Part #: 05070804
Perle's advanced line of managed Gigabit rate converting media converters, 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 converters are SNMP manageable to enable complete control and status viewing of your fiber links. Perle 10/100/1000 managed media converters come standard with extensive cost and time saving features.
- 10/100/1000Base-T to 1000Base-X fiber media converters
- Connect 10/100 devices to Gigabit backbone
- Advanced media converter features - smart link pass-through, fiber fault alert, auto-MDIX and loopback
It can manually set auto or MDIX on the copper port via on-board strap or via the management software. 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. The media converter will adjust for up to 120ns of delay skew between the 1000Base-T pairs.
- Auto-negotiation (802.3u)
The media converter supports auto negotiation. The 1000Base-X fiber interface negotiates according to 802.3 clauses 37. The 10/100/1000Base-T negotiates according to 802.3 clause 28 and 40. The 1000Base-X will link up with its partner after the highest common denominator (HCD) is reached and the copper has linked up with its partner. The 1000Base-X will continue to cycle through negotiation transmitting a remote fault of offline until the copper is linked up and the HCDs match. The media converter supports auto-negotiation of full duplex, half duplex, remote fault, full duplex pause, asymmetric pause and Auto MDI-X.
- 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 (IEEE 802.3xy)
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.
