NC316-2SFP16 - SFP Media Connect
16-channel, protocol independent media converter

The Fiber DriverT SFP Media Connect chassis (NC316-2SFP16) from MRV Communications combines protocol transparent connectivity with support for Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP) optical transceivers. With its high-density form factor, a single unit can manage up to 16 separate data channels (32 data ports) in just 1 U of rack space.

The design of the NC316-2SFP16 enables the implementation of a wide range of optical infrastructure solutions from media conversion and signal boosting to lambda conversion and Wave Division Multiplexing (WDM), all within a fully managed platform.

Creating a data connection with the SFP Media Connect is plug-n-play easy. Two SFP transceivers are simply inserted into a set of paired slots in the chassis and then connected to the network. There is no additional setup required. Changing the connection type later on only requires changing the SFP transceivers. And with the hot swappable functionality SFP transceivers there is virtually no down time involved.

The Fiber Driver SFP Media Connect automatically and transparently handles data connections with rates from 100 Mbps to 2.7 Gbps (100 MHz to 2.7 GHz) while performing 2R (reshape and retransmit) signal conditioning. It is compatible with Fast and Gigabit Ethernet, FDDI, ESCON, SONET (OC-3, OC-12, OC-48 and OC-48 with FEC), Fibre Channel (1 Gbps & 2 Gbps), Serial Digital Video Interface (SDI) SMPTPE-269 and SMTPE-292, DVB, HDTV (1.5 Gbps), and any other protocol within the range.

Used in conjunction with an external Mux/Demux unit - such as the 4- or 8-channel Fiber Driver CWDM Passive Mux/Demux (EM316PA4N / EM316PA8N) - and configured with corresponding wavelength-specific SFPs, the NC316-2SFP16 can be used to build a highly flexible and scalable WDM solution for any combination of supported protocols.

The SFP Media Connect fully supports the SFP standard including digital diagnostics as per SFF-8472. Together with the Fiber Driver Pluggable Media Connect management module (EM316NM-PMC), it is able to provide real-time access to information such as transceiver type (protocol, range, vendor, etc.), transceiver temperature, TX/RX optical power, and transceiver supply voltage. It also provides a means for generating management alerts and warnings when system parameters fall outside of the normal operating range.
