Combining data rate independent connectivity with
support for GBIC transceivers, the Fiber DriverT GBIC-to-GBIC Media Module
(EM316-2GBIC) from MRV Communications defines a new level of deployment
flexibility and inventory management, enabling the implementation of an
extremely wide range of optical infrastructure solutions from media conversion
and signal boosting to lambda conversion, Wave Division Multiplexing (WDM) and
Optical Add/Drop Multiplexing (OADM).
The GBIC-to-GBIC Media Module
offers plug-n-play ease of installation. Simply place the module into the Fiber
Driver chassis, insert the GBIC transceivers required for the protocol and
distance of the application, and connect to the network.
transceivers are portable they can be easily used again at a different location
for a different application, maximizing the investment in equipment and reducing
the need for on-hand inventory. MRV Communications provides a complete range of
optical and copper plug-in interfaces for the EM316-2GBIC.
GBIC-to-GBIC Media Module is data rate independent and performs 2R - reshape and
retransmit - conditioning of the data signal. Any protocol is supported,
including Fast and Gigabit Ethernet, FDDI, ESCON, SONET (OC-3, OC-12, OC-48 and
above), Fibre Channel (1 Gbps & 2 Gbps), Serial Digital Video Interface
(SDI) SMPTPE-269 and SMTPE-292, DVB, HDTV (1.5 Gbps), and many
With an externally connected Mux/Demux unit such as the 4- or
8-channel Fiber Driver CWDM Passive Mux/Demux (EM316PA4N / EM316PA8N), the
GBIC-to-GBIC Media Module can be used as a WDM solution building block
configured to the desired protocol/data rate and provided with GBICs of the
required wavelengths. Deployed along a WDM trunk at customer service points
using MRV Communications' passive OADM technology, the GBIC-to-GBIC Media Module
can be used to create a sophisticated Add/Drop topology.
Media Module is a hot swappable, two-slot module that can be placed in any
powered Fiber Driver chassis. It fully supports the GBIC standard. Through the
Fiber Driver Network Management Module, the EM316-2GBIC is SNMP manageable and
fully supported through the GUI of MegaVision WebT, MRV Communications'
comprehensive Network Management System (NMS).
