Fast Ethernet Performance
100SX Media Converters
Complete Range of Fiber Connections
The Allied Telesyn range of 850 nm Þber Fast Ethernet media converters allows users to extend the size of UTP networks with the
use of Þber cabling. Converting between 100Base-TX and 100Base-SX Þber quickly and reliably, the AT-MC105XL and ATMC106XL address the growing demand for a low-cost solution for Þber installations of 300 meters or less. To maximize ßexibility,
the converters are available in ST (AT-MC105XL) and SC (AT-MC106XL) Þber connector styles.
Auto-Negotiation and MissingLink
When connecting media converters to auto-negotiating Fast Ethernet switches, these media
converters will automatically connect the link in either full or half-duplex mode, allowing the
link to be established with the greatest bandwidth. Alternatively, the MissingLink feature
allows accurate reporting to network management systems as well as allowing devices with
redundant link capability to be inter-connected with these media converters, as a failure in one
Þber link will be signalled to the switch, allowing the second link to become active.
Simple Installation
All the media converters with a UTP connection feature an internal MDI/MDIX switch, 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 Þber connection, by forcing the converters to communicate over the Þber cable. This Link Test feature allows installers to check for cable
faults without the need for expensive Þber optic test equipment.
Standalone or Rackmountable
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 devices can be inserted
into a low cost rackmount chassis, allowing all 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.
Hassle Free Support
Allied Telesyn Fast Ethernet media converters have a lifetime warranty and free technical support, ensuring trouble-free installation.
