Omnitron launches coax-to-fiber media converter

May 11, 2009
May 11, 2009--Omnitron Systems Technology's iConverter STM-1 copper-to-fiber media device converts the electrical signals from an STM-1 or OC-3 75-Ω coax cable to optical signals on fiber. Designed for telecom and enterprise applications where STM-1 or OC-3 transport is required beyond the limited distance of coax, the iConverter STM-1 transmits signals up to 5 km on multimode fiber and up to 120 km on singlemode.

May 11, 2009--Omnitron Systems Technology's iConverter STM-1 copper-to-fiber media device converts the electrical signals from an STM-1 or OC-3 75-Ω coax cable to optical signals on fiber. Designed for telecom and enterprise applications where STM-1 or OC-3 transport is required beyond the limited distance of coax, the iConverter STM-1 transmits signals up to 5 km on multimode fiber and up to 120 km on singlemode.

The copper port of the this media converter provides two mini-BNC 75-Ω coax connectors that comply with the ITU-T G.703 and Telcordia GR-253 standards for CMI‑coded 155.52 Mbits/sec electrical interfaces. Adapter cables are included to convert the mini‑BNC connectors to standard BNC type connectors.

The fiber port accepts any standard, MSA‑compatible 155.52 Mbits/sec Small Form Pluggable (SFP) transceiver. The iConverter STM-1 also supports CWDM SFPs to convert the signal to a specific optical wavelength, and then connect it to a CWDM multiplexer to increase the fiber network capacity.

"The iConverter STM-1 media converter provides flexible STM-1 connectivity by overcoming the distance limitations of STM-1 coax cable," explains Doug Baar, vice president of engineering. "Its modular design enables scalable fiber implementation with high-density chassis for the network core, as well as compact chassis or standalone modules for the network edge."

The iConverter STM-1 is available as a compact, unmanaged standalone unit or a chassis‑managed plug-in module. The hot-swappable plug-in module can be mounted in a 19- or 5-module chassis with any combination of redundant AC and DC power supplies. It also can be mounted in a 2-module AC- or DC-powered chassis, or 1-module chassis with AC or DC power input. The standalone version is wall-mountable, is DC-powered, and is available with an external AC/DC power adapter or a terminal connector for direct DC power.

Omnitron Systems includes a lifetime warranty and free 24/7 technical support.
