The iConverter XG is a 10 Gigabit, protocol-transparent media converter with two pluggable transceiver ports. The iConverter XG can be used as a copper-to-fiber converter, a fiber mode converter, a WDM transponder or a fiber repeater supporting the three Rs (regeneration, retiming and reshaping).The XG can be used in Telecom or Enterprise applications where 10 Gigabit media conversion and fiber extension is required. The product supports 100% traffic throughput and has no packet size restrictions. It is protocol transparent within the range of 9.95Gbps to 11.32Gbps, providing interoperability with common protocols including 10G Ethernet, 10G SONET/SDH, 10G Fibre Channel and 10G OTN (G.709).Three interface configurations of the XG are available, supporting XFP to XFP, XFP to SFP+, and SFP+ to SFP+. Pluggable XFP and SFP+ transceivers can be used for multimode and single-mode applications, supporting short haul and long haul distances. The XFP interface is compatible with copper (10GBASE-CX4) transceiver modules, making it an ideal solution for converting 10G copper to fiber.The standalone iConverter XG is available as a compact, unmanaged tabletop or wallmount unit. The tabletop model can be DIN-rail mounted using an optional DIN-rail mounting kit. Both the tabletop and the wallmount models are DC powered and are available with an external AC/DC power adapter, or a terminal connector for DC power.Built-in loopback functions, on-board status LEDs and link fault propagation modes facilitate easy setup and quick troubleshooting. Pluggable transceiver alarm conditions reported through the digital diagnostic monitoring interface are displayed by the on-board status LEDs.
