Product Description

In today’s dynamic networks, changing requirements are a fact of life. The multi-mode fiber products and cabling which were the most cost effective and sound choice for your network yesterday may no longer give you the flexibility you require when adding remote offices today. Extend a single mode conversion to another single mode fiber segment,
using an S2SM.

As an economical alternative to using a switch with single-mode fiber ports, simply install an fiber mode converter into your multi-mode fiber network. This enables you to easily connect to single-mode cabling and achieve distances up to 80 km. Our fiber mode converters also give you the flexibility to add single-mode fiber links only where needed. The iMcV-S2SM fiber mode conversion modules includes:

  • Converts Single-Mode to Single-Mode fiber
  • Supports 10 Mbps Ethernet to 155 Mbps or 1.25 Gbps Gigabit Ethernet

Hot-swappable fiber mode conversion modules significantly reduce operation costs by allowing other modules within the same chassis to remain up and running during product upgrades, maintenance and troubleshooting.
