Fiber Connections
The Allied Telesis range of Fast
Ethernet media converters provides a
complete family of conversion devices,
allowing users to extend the size of
UTP networks with the use of fiber
cabling. Supporting both SC and
ST fiber connectors, MC100 Series
converters can be used to extend
networks with up to two km of multimode fiber or 40 km of single-mode
fiber.
Simple Installation
All the media converters feature auto
MDI/MDI-X, allowing the converter
to be connected to either a PC, hub
or switch with a simple UTP cable.
The media converters also allow the
installer to test the integrity of fiber
connection, by forcing the converters
to communicate over the fiber cable.
This "Link Test" feature allows installers
to check for cable faults without the
need for expensive fiber-optic test
equipment.
Standalone or Rackmounted
Each small media converter is
powered by an external power supply
unit for use in standalone applications.
Where multiple media converters
are being used, up to 12 standalone
devices can be inserted into a lowcost rackmount chassis, allowing all
alliedtelesis.com
the converters to be powered by a
single internal power supply. In critical
applications, a second load sharing
internal power supply can be installed
into the rackmount chassis.
Key Features
‫ۼۼ‬Half- and full-duplex operation
Hassle-Free Support
‫ۼۼ‬Transparent to IEEE 802.1Q packets
Allied Telesis Fast Ethernet media
converters include free technical
support, ensuring trouble-free
installation.
‫ۼۼ‬Rackmountable using optional
AT-MCR12, AT-TRAY4 or AT-TRAY1
chassis
Link Test
The link test is a fast and easy way for
you to test the connections between
the media converter ports and the end
nodes that are connected to the ports.
If a network problem occurs, you can
perform a link test to determine which
port is experiencing a problem, and
be able to focus your troubleshooting
efforts on the cable or end node where
the problem resides.
‫ۼۼ‬Wallmountable using AT-WLMT
‫ۼۼ‬Auto MDI/MDI-X
‫ۼۼ‬MissingLink
‫ۼۼ‬Link test
‫ۼۼ‬RoHS compliant
MissingLink
The MissingLink feature enables the
two ports on the media converter
to pass the "Link" status of their
connections to each other. When the
media converter detects a loss of
connection to an end node, the media
converter shuts down the connection
to the other port, thus notifying the end
node that the connection has been
lost.
