8 slot fiber chassis with single DC power and fan
FMC-CH08-DC is the newest and most cost effective fiber aggregation solution.
The chassis has only 2U and can accommodate 8 units of FMC series media converters. The chassis is so narrow that 2 units of FMC-CH08-DC can be installed side by side in a 19" wide telco rack system, raising the number of media converters to 16 on just 2U space height.
Structure of FMC chassis is simple and straightforward. There is only one DC power supply with neg. 18V-56V input. There are no centralized management features, however, the FMC series of media converters support many features likeFEF(Far-End-Fault) signaling andLFP(Link-Fault-Passthrough) function. Media converters are switching type, store-and-forward mechanism, and are able to work Half/Full Duplex mode.
The FMC-CH08-DC is a perfect choice for small aggregation nodes in a fiber network environment. Up to 8 fiber media converters can be put together in a chassis and benefit from a single power supply, saving precious space in the data networking design. Another chassis can be added in same 2U 19" rack space for a total number of sixteen FMC media converters.
