IMC Networks has expanded its optical network demarcation media converter family with the release of the telco-powered IE-MiniFiberLinX-II. The IE-MiniFiberLinX-II NID works with -48 VDC power that is compliant with the Bellcore GR-499 specification to support the minimum and maximum transient voltages typically required by transport equipment used in telco environments.
One version of the product offers “Last Gasp,” a trap notification feature that identifies possible power supply failure. Other key features include:
- Standalone form factor
- 100-Mbps fiber port
- 10/100-Mbps twisted-pair port
- Telco-compatible -48 VDC (-35 to -56.5 VDC)
- Industrial equipment extended temperature of -45º C to +85º C
- AC, DC power, and PoE/PD
- IEEE 802.3af PoE/PD compliant
- Remote SNMP management with iView2
- Extra tagging using Q-in-Q mode (802.1p)
- Broadcast storm protection
- 802.1Q VLAN compatible.
- Remote capabilities with built-in support for IMC’s UMA (IP-less management)
The IE-MiniFiberLinX-II is a miniature size module and is DIN Rail mountable.
“As ISPs move from T1s and E1s to Ethernet to provide services for voice and data, IMC Networks continues to adapt their product line to the needs of their customers. The latest version of the IE-MiniFiberLinX-II now supports telco power (-48 VDC) and Last Gasp SNMP traps. This really exemplifies IMC’s commitment to listening to customer needs,” states David Zaveski, senior sales engineer at IMC Networks.
The IE-MiniFiberLinX-II (datasheet PDF) is scheduled to ship in the third quarter of this year. Model 856-17727 with Last Gasp is listed at $650 and model 856-17627 without Last Gasp is listed at $590.
