March 31, 2009 -- Omnitron Systems Technology has announced the availability of the new iConverter XG 10 Gigabit media converter. The iConverter XG is a protocol-transparent media converter with two pluggable transceiver ports designed to simplify fiber connectivity for Ethernet and TDM networks by providing 10 Gigabit media conversion and fiber extension.

The iConverter XG functions as a copper-to-fiber converter, a fiber mode converter, a fiber repeater, and a WDM transponder. The product is engineered to support 100% traffic throughput and have no packet size restrictions. It is protocol transparent within the range of 9.95 to 11.32 Gbps, providing interoperability with common protocols including 10G Ethernet, 10G SONET/SDH, 10G Fibre Channel, and 10G OTN (G.709).

Applications for the iConverter XG include connecting 10G servers with copper 10GBase-CX4 interfaces via fiber, and converting standard 10-Gbps wavelengths to WDM wavelengths to expand the bandwidth of existing fiber infrastructure.

iConverter XG modules are available as self-contained standalone units or chassis plug-in modules. Three interface configurations of the XG are available, supporting XFP to XFP, XFP to SFP+, and SFP+ to SFP+. Pluggable XFP and SFP+ transceivers are supported for multimode and single-mode applications, supporting distances up to 80 km on single-mode. Copper to fiber conversion is achieved with CX4 interface XFP transceivers.

Built-in loopback functions, on-board status LEDs, and link fault propagation modes facilitate quick troubleshooting diagnostics, says the company. DIP switches documented on the module label enable easy configuration and installation. The plug-in XG features full management capabilities, including status reporting, fault detection, threshold violations, loopback functionality, and SNMP trap notification.
