SFP Gigabit Converter - Product Guide

SFP Gigabit Ethernet Media Converters
(FTX-250 Series)
Fiberdyne Labs, Inc.
Product Specification
Introduction:
Fiberdyne Lab’s FTX-250 series, of media converters, represent a revolutionary
concept in media converters. This series, of Gigabit Ethernet converters,
provides complete media flexibility, by utilizing industry-standard, Small Formfactor Pluggable (SFP), Gigabit-Ethernet modules. Each FTX-250 series
converter includes two SFP modules -- selected at the time of purchase. As the
name implies, the SFP modules simply plug into the two available ports on the
converter. If your requirements change, you simply unplug your existing SFP
module, and plug-in your new module. Fiberdyne Labs offers a wide variety of
SFP modules (TX, SX, LX, ZX, CWDM and DWDM) to meet your Gigabit
Ethernet requirements. This product family is available as a standalone device,
and as a rack-card, which installs into Fiberdyne Lab’s rack-mountable chassis.
Product Features:
•
Complies with IEEE 802.3z (1000Base or “Gigabit Ethernet”) standard
•
Auto-negotiation on both ports, operating at “full wire-speed”
•
Two hot-swappable, SFP ports for Gigabit-Ethernet SFP modules
•
Five Status indicators
•
External Power Brick (Standalone and Wall-mount versions)
•
Compact packages: rack-mountable, standalone and wall-mount
Status Indicators:
•
POWER – Media converter is receiving power
•
LINK A – Valid signal detected by Fiber SFP module in Port A
•
ACTIVITY A – Flashes to indicate activity on Fiber SFP module in Port A
•
LINK B – Valid signal detected by Fiber SFP module in Port B
•
ACTIVITY B – Flashes to indicate activity on Fiber SFP module in Port B
Special Consideration for RJ-45 (i.e. twisted-pair) SFPs
When a 1000Base-TX, (RJ-45 Twisted Pair) SFP is installed into the FTX-250,
the status indicators for that port on the FTX-250 will always be in their active
state -- regardless of state of the twisted-pair link (even if the networking cable is
not plugged into the SFP). This is an industry-wide issue related to the design
architecture of twisted pair SFP modules. This “false” status indication from
twisted pair SFP’s is completely normal, and in no way indicates inappropriate or
incorrect device performance. The 1000Base-TX SFP provides Auto MDI/MDIX
functionality. As such, it automatically corrects twisted pair interfaces that have
the transmit and receive pair swapped (i.e. crossover cables are not required).
