ION - Modular expansion base Product Details
The ION106-x is an intelligent, multi-service integration platform that offers first-rate solutions for integrating, optimizing and navigating networks. By cost-effectively integrating copper and fiber equipment with infrastructure, the ION Platform equips networks for the bandwidth, distance, and security demands of today, tomorrow, and every point in between. Designed for service providers, data centers, and core network applications, the ION Platform provides the secure network management of fiber interface points required for both carrier-class and enterprise-class services.Media conversion technology allows for the integration of fiber optic cabling into environments with copper-based equipment. Transition Networks' ION media converters provide a quick, inexpensive method for connecting new or embedded fiber with copper-based networking devices that have RJ-45 ports. The ION Platform accommodates a variety of modules and interface devices supporting multiple protocols and networking environments, including Ethernet and TDM networks. With optimum flexibility built in, ION is equally suited for either single-unit network edge or high-density applications within enterprises or central offices. The ION Platform provides simple navigation of all the connected network interfaces, allowing various components to be easily configured, monitored and managed remotely while providing a high level of secure access to the management data. Transition Networks' ION solutions allow users to easily integrate copper and fiber in order to extend networks within a building, between buildings, or throughout a campus where multiple points of fiber integration and secure network management of the fiber interface devices is essential.An end-to-end fiber integration solution can be achieved by pairing the modules in an ION chassis with the modules in another ION chassis, or a Transition Networks' stand-alone device. To take full advantage of all the features and functions available with the ION Chassis, an ION Management Module is required. The ION Management Module connects to the chassis backplane and communicates with the individual cards in the ION Chassis. Each slide-in module for the ION Chassis has specific features and functions that are controlled via the ION Management Module. A network administrator can configure, monitor and troubleshoot ION slide-in modules remotely via the ION Management Module.
