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 multi-service platform 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 or 10/100/1000 user ports. A fiber-to-fiber module can be used as an access node in a fiber ring, supporting four 10/100 or 10/100/1000 user ports.
Equipped with an iConverter management module or Network Interface Device (NID), the 2-Module Chassis provides a secure local or remote managed solution capable of supporting advanced Ethernet services for Enterprise and Service Provider networks. It can be remotely managed via IP-based SNMP or Telnet.
In Enterprise networks, the 2-Module Chassis is ideal for extending 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 a compact edge switch with a managed media converter.
In Service Provider networks, installing an iConverter NID plugin module and a four-port switch module provides a securely managed Carrier Ethernet demarcation for one or more Userto- Network Interfaces (UNI). This configuration provides an MEF certified deployment supporting advanced Operation, Administration and Maintenance (OAM) features.
The iConverter 2-Module Chassis can be wall-mounted using the optional wall mounting kit or installed on a stable, flat surface. Utilizing the iConverter 19" rack-mount shelf, two chassis can be securely mounted side-by-side.
