Antaira releases new media converter for ultra-high-bandwidth environments
May 29, 2019 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
May 29, 2019 – Antaira Technologies has expanded its industrial networking infrastructure family with the introduction of the FCU-6001-SFP+ media converter.
The media converter is equipped with one 10G/5G/2.5G/1G Base-T auto-negotiation port and one 10G Base-X SFP+ slot.
It supports 10Gigabit Ethernet media conversion from copper 10GBASE-T to fiber multi-mode or single-mode, using 10GBASE-SR or 10GBASE-LR SFP+ transceiver installed in the SFP+ slot to extend distances to servers, switches and patch panels.
The deployment distance can be extended from 300 metres (multi-mode) to up to 60 kilometres (single-mode).
The converters are designed for use in network environments where the ultra-high bandwidth provided by 10Gigabit Ethernet is required, for example, data center cloud computing, enterprise backbones, campus networks, and carrier infrastructure.
The FCU-6001-SFP+ supports chassis as well as wall mountable orientations and provides an operating temperature range from 0°C to 50°C.
