The 065-1185 provides 16 bays of space for all 065-11xx series Signamax media converters in a standard two rack unit high enclosure. High port density allows a variety of media converter solutions to be housed in a minimum amount of rack spaces for enterprise-level businesses and carriers. Redundant, fan-cooled load-sharing power supplies can be hot-swapped to ensure system uptime.
The built-in 10/100 switch enables the fiber cable connection to operate at 100 Mbps connected to either a 10BaseT or a 100BaseTX network, while remaining completely 100BaseFX standard-compliant. Fiber connection can also operate in full duplex mode whether the RJ-45 port is connected to a full duplex switch or a half duplex hub, with the built-in switch providing the network segmentation that permits the maximum fiber distance. Each Media Converter provides a 10/100BaseT/TX auto-negotiating RJ-45 twisted-pair connector port featuring store-and-forward switching architecture. Auto-MDIX capability on the twisted-pair port allows for convenient connections.
