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.
Because GBIC 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.
The 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 others.
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.
The GBIC-to-GBIC 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).
