The third generation of B&B Electronics' FiberLinX family, the iMcV-Giga FiberLinX-III gigabit intelligent Ethernet media converter, is a 10/100/1000 Mbps copper to 1000 Mbps fiber device, converting existing copper wiring-based networks to fiber optics. It securely transmits data from end to end over fiber, up to 100 Km. The new single-wide module, replacing the previous dual-wide module, now occupies only one slot. New network management and troubleshooting capabilities also provide functionality similar to that of a Layer 2/3 switch. The media converter is geared towards gigabit networking applications with a need to securely move large amounts of data over long distances of fiber with remote management, including ISPs, large campuses, enterprises with global locations, security and transportation. Beyond the previous generation’s role as an edge device only, the new version can now operate similar to a switch and serve as a central office infrastructure connection, including meeting the current 802.3ah IEEE standards for OAM. Free SNMP software allows administrators to monitor remote network nodes from a central management host and is suited for handling hundreds of modules and multi-users.
