The iConverter GX/TM2 conforms to the Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) fiber standards to support Fiber-to-the-X Metropolitan and Enterprise LAN networks. The GX/TM2 provides intelligent, securely managed service demarcation at the customer premises, offering Quality of Service and enhanced Bandwidth Control (rate-limiting) capabilities. The GX/TM2 features built-in Operations, Administration and Maintenance (OAM) with comprehensive performance monitoring, fault detection and provisioning.
The GX/TM2 is available as a compact standalone unit or as a chassis plug-in module. The hot-swappable GX/TM2 plug-in module can be mounted in a 19 or 5-Module chassis with any combination of redundant AC and DC power supplies. It can also be mounted in a 2-Module AC or DC powered chassis, or in a 1-Module chassis with AC or DC power input.
The plug-in module can manage other modules in the same chassis and operate as a managed 10/100/1000 media converter. It features two Gigabit Ethernet backplane ports for connectivity to adjacent modules in a chassis for multi-port and multi-service configurations.
The standalone GX/TM2 is available as a tabletop or wall-mount unit. The tabletop model can be DIN-rail mounted using an optional DIN-rail mounting kit. Both the tabletop and the wall-mount models are DC powered and are available with an external AC/DC power adapter or a terminal connector for DC power. The GX/TM2 standalone unit combines management capability with a compact chassis for deployment at the demarcation point.
Carrier-Grade Optical Ethernet
iConverter fiber access Network Interface Devices and media converters are MEF 9 and 14 certified compliant and NEBS Level 3 compliant. iConverter NIDs enable Carrier-Grade Optical Ethernet with reliability and performance monitoring to support Service Level Agreements (SLAs).
The modular design of iConverter fiber access equipment future-proofs Metro Ethernet services with scalability of network services and lowers operating costs with comprehensive OAM management and provisioning.
Metro Ethernet Access
At the Central Office, the GX/TM2 plug-in module is installed in a managed iConverter 19-Module chassis for high-density fiber distribution from UTP switch equipment. At Customer Premises 1 and 2, GX/TM2 standalone NIDs provide a fiber uplink to a single copper port for intelligent demarcation of Ethernet services.
