MiLAN Technology, a division of Digi International (NASDAQ: DGII), has announced availability of the MIL-341x, a modular media converter for Ethernet and Fast Ethernet networks. The MIL-341x is a two-port modular switch that converts 10/100BASE-TX to 100BASE-FX for extending network distances from 2km to 100km. For customers migrating their network to 100 Mps, the MIL-S341x Series also converts 10BASE-T devices to 100BASE-TX:

As part of the MIL-9100 and MIL-9200 Series Media Conversion Systems, the MIL-S341x Series is fully managed and configurable in multiple connector options, including ST (2km), SC (2, 15, 40, 70, and 100kms), and MT-RJ (2 and 15km). The MIL-341x can be used with other modules -- including Gigabit Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, and Ethernet -- within the 9100's eight-slot or 9200's sixteen-slot chassis' for media and rate adaptability when and where required.

All MIL-341x modules support auto-negotiation for speed and duplex on a per port basis, plus up to 8,192 MAC addresses. With support for features such as VLAN tagging, package size throughput, and back pressure in half duplex, the MIL-S341x is an ideal solution for converting legacy networks to higher speeds over greater distances.
