Allied Telesyn International (Bothell, WA; www.alliedtelesyn.com) has introduced a new Gigabit Ethernet multimode extender that will help network managers overcome cable length limitations. Its AT-EX 1001SC/GM1 is said to deliver Gigabit Ethernet connectivity in compliance with IEEE 802.3z, designed to provide an efficient means to facilitate long-distance network segments-up to 2 kilometers--with multimode fiber. The company says legacy FDDI networks can also be upgraded easily, without requiring single-mode fiber cable and interfaces.

Allied Telesyn says the device is interoperable with all standard Gigabit Ethernet equipment-switches, routers, hubs, and network adapters. The AT-EX1001SC/GM1 doesn't require management software installation or option configurations.
