10/100/1000BaseT/TX to 1000Base SFP Redundant Link Converter
Signamax's model 065-1096RED Redundant Link Gigabit Ethernet Media Converter is a 10/100/1000BaseT/TX to 1000Base SFP converter that provides automatic failover protection of a Gigabit Ethernet fiber optic connection without relying on a managed switch. It is designed to provide high-speed recovery (less than 10 ms) of mission-critical segments within networks serving Telco/ISP backbones, cable operators, military, banking and enterprise networks. It is configured by using two Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) Gigabit Ethernet fiber optic modules to provide a primary and secondary fiber optic pathway to another 065-1096RED converter at a distant location. The 1000Base fiber connections are provided by slide-in Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) modules; a number of different SFP modules are available for multimode or singlemode fiber applications. The 065-1096RED is a switching media converter, that auto-negotiates speed and duplex mode on its twisted-pair connection.
