GAO unveils plug-and-play Ethernet converter

May 27, 2009--GAO Comm's Plug and Play Ethernet media converter series conforms to the international network IEEE 802.3 standard, and is designed to convert long distance data signals between 10/100 Base-Tx and 100 Base-Fx Fast Ethernet.

May 27, 2009--GAO Comm's Plug and Play Ethernet media converter series conforms to the international network IEEE 802.3 standard, and is designed to convert long distance data signals between 10/100 Base-Tx and 100 Base-Fx Fast Ethernet.

These converters are used as a standalone unit or as a slide-in module to the converter rack or at a central wiring closet. Featuring built-in remote diagnostic capability, the media converters deploy a proprietary switch chip design, and provide 512KB SSRAM buffer and 2K MAC address list. They connect fiber cable to twisted cable segments without extra network operations, and support both full-duplex and half-duplex communication.

LEDs ensure a work-state diagnosis, while options include broadcast filtering, address auto-learning and auto-update, and store-and-forward mechanism.
