B&B Electronics has rolled out the the iMcV-Converter SFP+. The latest member of the company's 10G fibre media converter family is designed to connect network segments running diverse fibre types in large, fibre-backbone applications.

A singlewide module solution, the converter allows for installation in a variety of chassis (20-, 6-, 3-, 2- or 1-slot), and optimises the cost per slot. It allows for remote management from a central office using SNMP.

The device is aimed at high-bandwidth, mission-critical networks such as medical facilities, municipalities, ISPs, telecoms, and large campuses to move large amounts of data over long distances between multiple fibre types within a network.

The module is protocol-independent and features dual SFP+ ports for a single conversion between Single-Mode and Multi- Mode fibre, Single-Mode-to-Single-Mode fibre, or Multi-Mode to Single-Strand Single-Mode fibre. They accept any SFP+ module that meets the SFF-8431 standard, as outlined by the SFF Committee, 2009, Rev 4.1. easy configuration and future upgrading as network demands evolve.

The DDMI feature enables users to view the SFP+ status (fibre type, manufacturer, output power) when the company's iMcV-10G SFP+ is installed in a chassis with an SNMP management module. Included is free, GUI-based SNMP software, iView2, which allows network operators to easily configure and manage remote network nodes from a central management host. iView2 runs stand-alone on Windows NT/XP/2000/7 or as a Web Server running under IIS.
