More Information

Perle S-10GT Media Converters transparently connect 10GBase-T Ethernet links over multimode or single mode fiber. Each 10GbE Media Converter comes with one RJ45 10GBase-T port and an empty slot for one SFP+ or XFP module.

Copper to Fiber conversion is achieved by inserting XFP or SFP+ fiber transceivers that support multimode and single-mode fiber, including CWDM/DWDM wavelengths. Copper to copper is achieved by inserting SFP+ Direct Attach Cable (DAC), also known as twinax, or XFP 10Gbase-CX4 transceivers.

The empty transceiver ports on the S-10GT Media Converters allow for flexible network configurations to meet any requirement using a variety of 10G transceivers supplied by Perle, Cisco or other manufacturers of MSA compliant SFP+ and XFPs. You can use these products to convert:

  • 10GBase-T (RJ45) to SFP+
  • 10GBase-T (RJ45) to XFP
  • 1000Base-T (RJ45) to 1000Base-X (SFP)
  • 10GBase-T (RJ45) to Direct Attach DAC copper twinax (SFP+)
  • 10GBase-T (RJ45) to 10GBase-CX4 (XFP)

Perle 10 Gigabit Ethernet to Fiber Converters provide an economical path to extend the distance of an existing 10GbE link. Network Administrators can “see-everything” with Perle’s advanced features such as Smart Link Pass-Through, Fiber Fault Alert, a built-in Link Test capability and Loopback. This allows for more efficient troubleshooting and less on-site maintenance. These cost and time saving features, along with a lifetime warranty and free worldwide technical support, make Perle S-10GT Media Converters the smart choice for IT professionals. 10G Media Converters are also available for managed networks with AAA Security.

Smart Link Pass-Through When Smart Link Pass-Through is enabled (default), each port will reflect the state of its port peer. In this mode, if a link loss is detected on one port, the transmit signal on the other port is disabled “passing through” the state of the failed link. This enables managed switches and other devices to report link failures to their network NMS.

When Smart Link Pass-Through is disabled, if a link loss is detected on one port the transmit signal remains enabled on the other port.
Fiber Fault Alert With Fiber Fault Alert the state of the 10 Gigabit Ethernet receiver is passed to the transmitter. This provides fault notification to the partner device attached to the 10G Ethernet interface of the media converter.
Green Ethernet Utilizes Green Ethernet energy saving technology based on industry standards such as:
  • Short Reach Mode (less than 30 meters) as per IEEE 802.3an. This enables 10GBase-T operation with less power consumption.
  • Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) as per 802.3az. This provides power savings during idle network activity.
Built-in Link Test When enabled, the built-in packet generator transmits Ethernet test frames to its 10 Gigabit Ethernet peer. The remote media converter will auto-detect the test frames and loopback the test frames. Any frames received in error, will cause the Power, LK1 and LK2 LEDs to illuminate in a specific combination to identify the error. During the test different bit test patterns will be utilized every 5 seconds ensuring a thorough link test.
Test Mode Auto-detect No switches are required to be flipped in order to go into test mode. The remote media converter will enter test mode automatically when requested by its central site peer. This virtually eliminates unnecessary truck rolls to a remote site when diagnosing a link failure.
EDC Mode Control Electronic Dispersion Compensation (EDC) is an algorithmic method used to compensate for optical dispersion that occurs on high speed 10 Gigabit links. EDC mode settings are automatically configured by the media converter based on the information retrieved from the SFP+ or XFP module. This will enable proper operation for extended multimode 10GBase-LRM as well as active or passive copper cabling.
Module Temperature Protection Protects your DOM/DMI capable SFP+ or XFP module by monitoring its internal temperature and will automatically shut down the XFP or SFP if the module is operating above its maximum temperature threshold.
High Power Level 4 XFPs High powered Level 4 XFPs are supported.
Gigabit SFP support The 10 Gigabit media converter model with the SFP slot can also support Gigabit (1000Base-X) SFPs. This allows users to use Gigabit SFPs today and migrate to 10G SFP+ in the future.
Jumbo Packets Transparent to jumbo packets.
VLAN Transparent to VLAN tagged packets.
Power Strain Relief strap A strain relief strap is provided to ensure a solid and secure power connection to the media converter. Ideal for areas that may be exposed to any vibration.
Remote Loopback Capable of performing a loopback on the 10 Gigabit interface. In this mode, all frames received on the port in loopback mode will be transmitted back. This provides users with the capability of utilizing their own in-house test generators for testing the link.
