The iConverter GX/F managed media converter is a member of the modular iConverter product family. The GX/F provides single-mode to multimode fiber conversion and rate conversion between 1000BASE-X and 100BASE-FX.

The iConverter GX/F extends network distances by connecting multimode fiber network devices over single-mode fiber cabling. It regenerates and retimes the fiber optic signal, and multiple GX/F repeaters can be cascaded to extend total network distances. The GX/F converts between Gigabit Ethernet fiber and Fast Ethernet fiber enabling seamless integration between Gigabit Ethernet and legacy Fast Ethernet networks.

iConverter GX/F models are available with multimode, single-mode, and single-fiber options with SC, MT-RJ, and LC connectors. The iConverter GX/F features two 10/100 Ethernet backplane ports to provide connectivity to adjacent modules for network expansion and for in-band connectivity to an iConverter Network Management Module.

The iConverter GX/F supports the IEEE 802.1Q and 802.1p standards, and the 802.1Q Tag VLAN packet tagging and untagging protocol.

Whether the GX/F is deployed at the customer premises (CP) or at the Central Office (CO), the VLAN technology enables Service Providers to offer their customers secure Ethernet Virtual Connections which are isolated from other customer's data as well as from the Service Provider's management traffic. It also enables the Service Provider to deploy edge equipment at the customer premises while maintaining secure separation of Service Provider network management and customer data traffic flows, providing intrusion protection to the Service Provider.

The GX/F features Port VLAN, which allows complete control of traffic flow between both fiber ports and chassis backplane ports on a module, and Port Access Control, which facilitates enabling and disabling of individual ports. The GX/F also supports reporting of MIB statistics. Statistics are available for 32 variables per port, reporting a wide range of real-time packet statistics to provide performance and operational monitoring.

The GX/F features user-selectable Link Propagate, Link Segment, Remote Fault Detection and Symmetrical Fault Detection modes to facilitate quick fault detection, isolation and reporting.

iConverter GX/F modules are hot-swappable and can be mounted in a 19-Module (2U high) or 5-Module (1U high) rack-mountable chassis (19-inch or 23-inch) with any combination of redundant AC, 24VDC or 48VDC power supplies. It can also be mounted in a 2-Module AC or 18 to 60VDC powered chassis, or in a 1-Module AC/DC powered chassis.

The iConverter family of managed fiber access media converters are used in Service Provider access networks and Enterprise LANs. iConverter media converters provide fiber connectivity with copper-to-fiber, multimode fiber to single-mode fiber, or dual fiber to single-fiber conversions.
