Combining data rate independent connectivity with
support for SFP transceivers, the Fiber DriverT SFP-to-SFP Media Module
(EM316-2SFP) 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 SFP-to-SFP Media Module offers
plug-n-play ease of installation. Simply place the module into the Fiber Driver
chassis, insert the SFP transceivers required for the protocol and distance of
the application, and connect to the network.
Because SFP 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 EM316-2SFP.
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 SFP-to-SFP Media Module can be used as a
WDM solution building block configured to the desired protocol/data rate and
provided with SFPs of the required wavelengths. Deployed along a WDM trunk at
customer service points using MRV Communications' passive OADM technology, the
SFP-to-SFP Media Module can be used to create a sophisticated Add/Drop
The SFP-to-SFP Media Module is a hot swappable, single-slot
module that can be placed in any powered Fiber Driver chassis. It fully supports
the SFP standard including digital diagnostics as per SFF-8472. Through the
Fiber Driver Network Management Module, the EM316-2SFP is SNMP manageable and
fully supported through the GUI of MegaVision WebT, MRV Communications'
comprehensive Network Management System (NMS).
