Omnitron iConverter 10GXT

iConverter 10GXTThe iConverter 10GXT is a 10/100/1000BASE-T copper to 1000BASE-X or 10GBASE-R fibre media converter, and is available as a compact, unmanaged standalone unit. The iConverter 10GXT supports jumbo frames up to 10,056 bytes.

The 10GXT is used to convert 10/100/1000 copper to Gigabit Ethernet fibre or 10 Gigabit Ethernet fibre. The 10GXT supports 1000BASE-X or 10GBASE-R Small Form Pluggable (SFP/SFP+) transceivers or 10GBASE-X XFP transceivers. SFP/SFP+/XFP transceivers enable adaptability to different fibre types and distances, and support Coarse Wave Division Multiplexing (CWDM) technology to increase the bandwidth capacity of fibre infrastructure.

The RJ-45 port supports 10/100/1000 and Half/Full-Duplex auto-negotiation with hardware manual override controls.

The 10GXT features user-selectable Link Propagate and Link Segment modes to facilitate quick fault detection, isolation and reporting.

The 10GXT is available as a standalone unit with or without integrated mounting brackets. The 10GXT is DC powered and can be ordered with an external AC to DC power adapter, or 2-pin terminal connector for direct DC voltages up to 16 VDC.

  • Lifetime Warranty and free 24/7 Technical Support

11000BASE-X is supported on SFP+ models only

Application Example

In this application example, 10GXT media converters are deployed in a star topology network with fibre links distributed from a central location.

At Building A, a 10G fibre switch is providing multiple fibre links to the remote buildings.

At Buildings B and C, iConverter 10GXT media converters provide 10/100/1000 copper connectivity to existing copper Ethernet switches in each building.

iConverter 10GXT Application Example

The iConverter 10GXT supports Link Modes used to provide network notification of fibre and copper faults. Link failures on any port are propagated to managed network switches, notifying network administrators of link failure.
