Transition Networks Fast Ethernet 100BASE-TX to Product Details
Extend Network Distance
Used in pairs, this media converter can extend distances between two twisted pair switches or a switch and a server up to 2 km over multimode fiber, or up to 120 km over single mode fiber.
Connect Remote Devices
Using one media converter, a switch with a copper port can be connected to a switch with an existing fiber interface.
^^ Extended temperature capable
^^ Round trip delay of only 40 bit times—far below the Class II rating of 92 bit times.
^^ Auto-Negotiation (802.3u)
Allows devices to perform automatic configuration to achieve the best possible mode of operation over a link.
Automatically detects and configures the twisted pair port on the converter to the correct MDI or MDI-X configuration.
^^ Link Pass Through
Link Pass Through is a troubleshooting feature that allows the media converter to monitor both the fiber and copper RX ports for loss of signal.
^^ Far End Fault (FEF)
A troubleshooting feature that is generally used in conjunction with Link Pass Through to notify both end devices of a loss of link.
^^ Automatic Link Restoration
Transition Networks's converters will automatically re-establish link in all network conditions.
^^ Pause (IEEE 802.3xy)
Pause signaling is an IEEE feature that temporarily suspends data transmission between two devices in the event that one of the devices becomes overwhelmed.
^^ The converters will also automatically re-establish link when connected to two 10/100 auto-negotiating switches if link is lost. With other manufacturers' converters the user must intervene to re-establish link.
