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
These shortcoming of switched mode converter
can be over come if the switching frequency is increased in order to reduce the converter size and weight, and hence to increase the power density.
The IE-ModeConverter from IMC Networks is a compact, flexible, fiber-optic mode converter
Dual-port, modular mode converter
extends 10 Gbps Ethernet over fiber up to 80 km
When used with an SX and LX module the unit can be used as a mode converter
IMC Networks, a leading manufacturer of optical access solutions and media converters for local and wide-area networks, announced the release of the IE-ModeConverter - a compact, highly-flexible fiber optic mode converter
The DC-DC architecture is a current mode converter
which can be configured with external component changes for either fly-back, forward, or buck topologies to support non-isolated or isolated switching topologies.
IMC's product line consists of hundreds of solutions, including copper-to-fiber Media Converters that integrate with existing copper wiring-based networks, fiber mode converters
, distance extenders, repeaters, LAN/WAN bandwidth management, intelligent FTTx solutions, and Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) solutions.
Additionally, when employing different types of fiber for different purposes within the same network, single-mode and multimode can easily coexist using low-cost fiber mode converters
The AAT1154 and AAT1155 constant PWM mode converters
offer up to 95 percent efficiency and support a maximum voltage input up to 5.
IMC Networks offers the industry's widest variety of fiber optic media converters, fiber mode converters
, as well as intelligent Fiber-to-the-Premises solutions.
Converters being purchased by TCI are dual mode converters
that will accommodate both the existing DigiCipher standards and these MPEG-2 standard elements.
