ComNet Next Generation Cost-Effective Dual Input over SFP Media Converter

Exclusive Demux feature allows for port isolation, replicating two media converters over one fiber

Danbury, CT. – ComNet, Communication Networks of Danbury, Connecticut, a USA-based manufacturer of fiber optic transmission and networking equipment, is introducing a three port media converter, the CNMC2+1SFP/M. This media converter features two TX input ports and a single SFP port for the users’ choice of fiber type, distance, connector type and speed.  The unit features port isolation, allowing the unit to act as two independent media converters while using a single optical fiber for transmission.

The key benefit to users of the CNMC2+1SFP/M is its ease of use. The ComNet exclusive Mux feature prevents network video flooding of multicast traffic with DIP switch selection of the fiber port as a dedicated uplink path. A unique Link Fault Pass-Through feature detects if either of the copper ports are down and triggers the optical port to switch states to indicate the failure to the monitoring location.

The CNMC2+1SFP/M is a cost-effective and easy way to add IP Video to a network and is designed for use in harsh environmental applications.

According to Andrew Acquarulo Jr., ComNet President and CEO, “ComNet has always focused on taking the complexity out of IP video networks. Now being able to design the network where using one media converter instead of two, to accomplish the same task is the definition of a cost-effective solution. The ComNet CNMC2+1SFP/M is an other example of ComNet understanding the needs of the market.”
