Perle S-110-M2SC2 Media Converter
Network Administrators can "see-everything" with Perle's advanced features such as Auto-Negotiation, Auto-MDIX, Link Pass-Through, Far End Fault, and Remote Loopback. This allows for more efficient troubleshooting and less on-site maintenance. These cost and time saving features, along with a lifetime warranty and free worldwide technical support, make Perle's 10/100 ethernet media converters the smart choice for IT professionals.
The media converter supports auto negotiation on the 10/100Base-TX interface.
Auto-MDIX (automatic medium-dependant interface crossover) detects the signalling on the UTP interface to determine the type of cable connected (straight-through or crossover) and automatically configures the connection when enabled. With Auto-MDIX enabled, either a straight-through or crossover type cable can be used to connect the media converter to the device on the other end of the cable.
With Link Pass-Through the state of the UTP receiver is passed to the fibre transmitter to make the media converter appear transparent to the end devices that are connected. In addition if Far-End Fault is enabled the media converter can turn off the 10/100Base-TX transmitter when a FAR-End Fault is received. Using Link Pass-Through with Far-End Fault minimises data loss when a fault occurs. Should a fault occur, the end devices have the indication of a failure available to them making trouble shooting easier.
Far-End Fault (FEF)
The media converter implements the 802.3 standard for Far-End Fault for the indication and detection of remote fault conditions on the 100Base-X fibre connection. With Far-End Fault enabled the media converter transmits the Far-End Fault Indication over the 100Base-X fibre connection whenever a receive failure is detected on the 100Base-X fibre connection. The media converter continuously monitors the100Base-X fibre connection for a valid signal. The action the media converter takes on receiving a Far-End Fault
Indication is dependent on the Link Pass-Through switch setting.
Pause (IEEE 802.3xy)
Pause signalling is an IEEE feature that temporarily suspends data transmission between two devices in the event that one of the devices becomes overwhelmed. The media converter supports pause negotiation on the 10/100Base-TX copper connection.
The media converter is transparent to VLAN tagged packets.
The media converter is capable of performing a loopback on the fibre port.
