Transition Networks, Inc., a provider of data network integration offerings, has announced its new line of 10/100/1000 Ethernet small form-factor pluggable (SFP)-based enterprise-class media converters (SGPAT1040-x05) with Power-over-Ethernet Plus (PoE+). The products are new additions to the recently announced multi-port Gigabit Ethernet PoE+ line of media converters.
The SFP-based media converters connect a 10/100/1000Base-T network to a 100/1000Base-X fiber-optic network. The devices let network administrators easily and affordably support different types of optical network cabling and transmission distances. The SFPs can also be used to support different wavelengths if the fiber connection is going to a coarse- or dense-wavelength division multiplexer.
The devices deliver 30W power on each UTP port, which means they can accommodate devices with higher power requirements such as IP phones, pan-tilt zoom (PTZ) network cameras, and high bandwidth wireless access points (WAPs). In addition, the active link pass through (ALPT) and auto power reset (APR) features make it quick and simple for network administrators to manage link failures and power resets.
