Omnitron Systems T1/E1 Managed Media Converter

The iConverter T1/E1 media converter provides standard T1 (1.544Mbps) or E1 (2.048Mbps) copper-to-fiber conversion and can be used to extend the demarcation point between service provider and networking equipment. T1/E1 media converters operate in pairs, extending distances over fiber, which improves noise immunity, quality of service, intrusion protection and network security.

The T1/E1 supports Small Form Pluggable (SFP) transceivers, enabling adaptability to different fiber types, distances and wavelengths, providing maximum flexibility across a variety of network architectures and topologies. Support for SFP transceivers increases the bandwidth capacity of fiber access infrastructure by incorporating Coarse Wave Division Multiplexing (CWDM) technology. CWDM SFPs provide wavelength conversion enabling multiplexing of up to 16 wavelengths on the same fiber pair. The same media converter can utilize a variety of SFPs for different wavelengths and distances, reducing costs and simplifying inventories.

The T1/E1 also supports a variety of fixed fiber connectors for multimode, single-mode and single-mode single-fiber.

Designed as a transparent repeater, the iConverter T1/E1 supports standard T1, E1 and Primary Rate Interface (PRI), voice or data. The converter also supports AMI, B8ZS and HDB3 line codes. DIP-switches provide easy configuration of T1/E1 line codes and line build-out.

The iConverter T1/E1 features user-selectable Local Loopback, Force 1s to Copper, Force 1s to Fiber, and Fiber Optic Test modes to facilitate diagnosis of the remote unit, eliminating the cost of external hardware or support personnel at each end of a link.

The copper interface features an RJ48 connector for balanced T1/E1 applications, and models featuring coaxial BNC connectors are available for unbalanced E1 applications.

The iConverter T1/E1 is available as a compact, unmanaged standalone unit with an RJ48 interface or as a chassis managed plug-in module with RJ48 or coax interface. The hot-swappable plug-in module 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.

As a standalone unit, the T1/E1 is available as a wall-mount unit. The wall-mount models are DC powered and are available with an external AC/DC power adapter or a terminal connector for DC power.
