The iConverter XG and XG+ are protocol-transparent fiber media converters with automatic speed selection of data rates from 6Gbps to 11.32Gbps. The XG and XG+ feature pluggable transceiver ports, and can be used as fiber mode converters, CWDM or DWDM transponders, or fiber repeaters supporting the three Rs (regeneration, retiming and reshaping). The iConverter XG and XG+ support 100% traffic throughput and have no packet size restrictions. Ultra-low packet latency (< 50nsec) enables high-performance connectivity for data centers and financial networks. Three interface configurations are available: 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 distances, long haul distances and WDM fiber links. The iConverter XG and XG+ support 10G Ethernet, 10G SONET/SDH, 10G Fibre Channel, 10G OTN (G.709) and CPRI rates up to option 8 (6Gbps to 11.32Gbps). The iConverter XG+ supports high-power (power level 3 and 4) XFP transceivers and the latest generation of wavelength tunable DWDM XFP transceivers. Utilizing management, the wavelength of a tunable transceiver can be programmed and saved, eliminating the need for external programming equipment. The iConverter XG and XG+ are available as compact, unmanaged standalone units, or chassis plug-in modules that can be managed with a management module installed in the chassis. The hot-swappable, plug-in modules can be mounted in a variety of chassis with AC and DC power supplies. Plug-in modules feature full management capabilities, including status reporting, fault detection, threshold violations, loopback functionality and SNMP trap notification. SNMP traps provide link status availability and transceiver threshold alerts. The standalone iConverter XG and XG+ are unmanaged tabletop or wall-mount units. 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 to 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 or management interface on plug-in modules. Built-in Self Diagnostic Circuit Test validates the fiber connection between two XG and XG+ models.
