Dual Channel 10/100BaseTX to 100BaseFX

Dual Channel 10/100BaseTX to 100BaseFX converterEnd of Life Products

The FRM220-10/100iS-2 is a dual channel 10/100BaseTX to 100BaseFX media converter. Offering 2 converters in a single package the unit is perfect in high density environments. With advanced features like rate limiting, this media converter is ideal for use in metro LAN, campus, enterprise and FTTx applications. The FRM220-10/100iS-2 can be operated in an unmanaged environment. However when used in conjunction with the NMC management card the FRM220-10/100iS-2 can be configured and monitored via HTTP or SNMP. What's more even a remote FRM220-10/100i(S), at the other end of the fibre link from the NMC card, can be managed via an in-band embedded communications channel.
