MidasCore introduces industry’s first managed media converter with Automatic Detection of Link Fault
and switching features. It is designed to provide high-speed recovery (less than 40 ms) of mission-critical
segments within networks serving Telco/ISP backbones, cable operators, military, banking and enterprise
For full auto-switch protection capability, these converters can be used with any SC SFPs/ SC Media
converters with appropriate wavelength. The redundant fiber optic pathways can be routed either via
strand diversity, where the secondary protection fiber circuit resides in the same fiber optic cable jacket as
the primary connection, or in route diversity protection architectures where the secondary protection fiber
circuit is routed through a completely different physical pathway. Route diversity ensures that physical
damage to a single fiber optic cable would not shut down the secondary path as well.
Link Fault Signaling (LFS) between two redundant paths.
Fast Convergence from primary to the secondary fiber link (within 40 ms).
Alarm and status LEDs to monitor both the redundant fiber links and the twisted-pair copper link.
SFP slots allow flexible, cost-effective, and easy Gigabit Ethernet fiber link configuration (Optional).
Supports auto-negotiation of speed and duplex mode.
Auto MDI/MDI-X on the RJ-45 port.
Distance up to 20 Kms~100Kms (Transceiver dependent).
Built-in IP-based Web Interface.
Supporting remote and local management.
Supporting IEEE 802.3X Flow Control for Full-Duplex mode.
