Storage Area Networks (SANs) use the Fibre Channel protocol to allow
servers and workstations to access shared, remote data storage devices
without adding congestion to the Local Area Network (LAN). The Fiber
DriverT Fibre Channel managed media converters extend and enhance
the deployment of SANs.
While the standard Fibre Channel link distance limit is just 500 m
over Multimode (MM) fiber, the Fiber Driver Gigabit Multimode Extender
(GMX) modules can achieve link distances of 2 km or more over MM fiber,
and the Multimode to Singlemode converters provide distances up to
80 km over SM fiber.
In addition to the GMX modules and Multimode-to-Singlemode converters,
the Fiber Driver Fibre Channel product line offers solutions in Single
Fiber converters, Coarse Wave Division Multiplexers (CWDMs), Splitter/Combiners,
and Signal Repeaters.
