28 January 2004 Foothill Ranch, CA Lightwave -- IMC Networks has unveiled the iMediaChassis/20, an intelligent, carrier-class platform that supports Ethernet, ATM/SONET, T1/E1, DS3/E3, WDM, and CWDM networking technologies. The iMediaChassis/20 enables both enterprise and service provider networks to reduce capital and operational expenses by providing all fiber media conversion, distance extension, and bandwidth-scalable Transparent LAN services from the same SNMP-managed chassis system.

The iMediaChassis/20 features 20 slots for optical access modules and one slot for an optional SNMP management module. Redundant, load-sharing AC or DC power supplies guarantee high-availability and high-reliability of mission critical applications in the carrier Central Office, Point-of-Presence, or in the enterprise, say company representatives. Featuring advanced remote configuration and management capabilities, the iMediaChassis/20 SNMP management agent provides real-time information on all modules, link, and port status, and monitors voltage levels, chassis temperature, and fan speeds. In case of a power line failure, the chassis will generate a "Last Gasp" SNMP trap to alert device managers in addition to an audible warning.

Available immediately, the iMediaChassis/20 and IMC Networks' other solutions are distributed domestically by Graybar, Ingram Micro, Tech Data, and by a network of distributors in over 50 countries. The iMediaChassis/20 list prices range from $860 for the unit with a single AC power supply to $1,400 for redundant AC, and $1,650 for the redundant DC-powered units.
