The iConverter GX/X managed two-port Gigabit Ethernet switch and media converter is a member of the modular iConverter product family. The GX/X provides single-mode to multimode fiber conversion for extending network distances up to 80 km by connecting multimode fiber network devices over single-mode fiber cabling. The GX/X also functions as a repeater, regenerating and re-timing the fiber optic signal. Multiple GX/X can be cascaded to extend total network distances.
The iConverter GX/X supports the IEEE 802.1Q and 802.1p standards, and the 802.1Q Tag VLAN packet tagging and untagging protocol.
Whether deployed at the Customer Premises (CP) or at the Central Office (CO), the VLAN-based technology enables service providers to offer to their customers secure Ethernet virtual connections which are isolated from other customer's data as well as from the service provider's management traffic. It also enables the service provider to deploy edge equipment at the customer premises while maintaining secure separation of Service Provider network management and customer data traffic.
The GX/X features Port VLAN, which allows complete control of traffic flow between both fiber ports and chassis backplane ports on a module and Port Access Control, which facilitates enabling and disabling of individual ports. The GX/X also supports reporting of MIB statistics. The GX/X features user-selectable link propagate, link segment, remote fault detection and symmetrical fault detection modes to facilitate quick fault detection, isolation and reporting.
