Product description
The FRM220-4G-3S media converter has the ability to convert any signaling rate, from 155Mbps to 4.25Gbps, being an Universal Fiber Converter - ideal for any communication standard like: Fast and Giga Ethernet, STM-1, STM-4, STM-16, OC-1, OC-3, OC-12 and OC-48, FDDI or Fibre Channel 1/2/4G. FRM220-4G-3S has management features via SNMP or local console port (telnet) and offers active secondary optical path protection circuitry for optical redundancy. For local console the model must be purchased with a separate casing that offers serial console port, like the FRM220-CH01M or the FRM220-CH02M.

The FRM220-4G-3S is a 2R 4G optical regeneration device, which consists of Re-amplification and Re-shaping. The transponder card converts a data signal to the correct wavelength for transmission on a specific channel by supporting SFP optics on both line side and client side interfaces. 1+1 Automatic optical line Protection Switching is supported for the aggregate fiber ports. When the FRM220-4G-3S card is placed in the FRM220 rack with SNMP management, the management can view the converter card's status, type, version, fiber link status and alarms. The card can be configured to enable or disable the port, reset the port and perform diagnostic loop backs.

FRM220-4G-3S converter cand be used as card into the larger 20 slot FRM220-CH20or 8 slot FRM220-CH08chassis.

  • Multiple protocol supported at bit rates 28Mbps to 4.25Gbps (Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, OC -3, OC -6, OC -12, STM-1, STM-4, STM-16, FC -1, FC -2, FC -4)
  • Network management via Web, Telnet, SNMP in central FRM220 chassis
  • Local configuration via DB9 console port (when placed in CH01M or CH02M)
  • Digital diagnostic monitoring of SFP module
  • Perform optical repeater function (Re-amplification, Re-shaping)
  • Facility loopback on both Client / Line sides
  • 1+1 optic fiber protection
  • Link Fault Pass-Through (LFPT)
  • Auto Laser Shutdown (ALS)
  • Detect transceiver transmitter error alarm
