Perle 05060580 S-4GPT-DSFP Fiber Mode Converter
- Easy Fiber to Fiber network extension to remote locations
- Provide wavelength conversion for CWDM and DWDM transponder applications
- Protocol-transparency support for all network protocols
- Rate-transparency support for SFP transceivers with data rates up to 4.25 Gbps
- Reliable operation with advanced features like Smart Link Pass-Through and Fiber Fault Alert
Perle's feature rich SFP to SFP protocol and rate-transparent media converters enable network administrators to incorporate multiple fiber types and wavelengths in, or between, networks through fiber to fiber mode conversion. Using this technology will result in significant cost savings when compared to replacing an optical blade on network equipment. Easily extend a network to remote locations by converting:
SFP to SFP Conversion
The S-4GPT-DSFP Fiber Mode Converter comes with two empty SFP slots. This allows for flexible network configurations using SFP fiber transceivers supplied by Perle, Cisco or other manufacturers of MSA compliant SFPs. Adapting to different fiber types, distances and wavelengths is made simple by mixing and matching SFP’s as needed for maximum flexibility across a variety of topologies and network architectures. The hot-swappable nature of SFPs allow for easy configuration and future upgrades as network demands evolve by simply upgrading a single SFP instead of replacing the entire fiber mode converter.
Convert different wavelengths ( WDM Transponders )
SFP transceivers also enable the S-4GPT-DSFP Fiber Mode Converter to operate as a Wave Division Multiplexing (WDM) transponder. Also referred to as Bi-Directional ( BiDi ) or Simplex, WDM Transponders help network administrators take advantage of the cost savings in both material and labour associated with Single Strand Fiber. WDM uses separate transmit and receive frequencies to communicate on a single fiber strand. WDM technology relies on the fact that optical fibers can carry many wavelengths of light simultaneously without interaction between each wavelength. Thus, a single fiber can carry many separate wavelength signals or channels simultaneously. WDM systems are divided into different wavelength patterns, conventional/coarse (CWDM) and dense (DWDM).
