Gigabit Ethernet distance extender

The Model 1280 GbX increases the maximum interconnect distance limitation of Gigabit Ethernet switches from the standard IEEE 802.3z distance of 3 km to distances of more than 100 km. The product acts like a combination wavelength converter and full clock/data repeater, providing a regenerated singlemode fiber-optic signal for long-distance Gigabit Ethernet applications. Independent transmit and receive functions are provided, allowing the network to take advantage of full 2-Gbit/sec full-duplex bandwidth. Network management and loopback control functions are provided via an RS-232C port. The unit is available with single or dual Gigabit Ethernet channels packaged in a 1U high chassis, which can provide up to two full-duplex links with a 4-Gbit/sec capacity.
