Managed 100Base-FX to El Protocol Converter

1. Overview

F5-45 11 Series F5-1518 Converter is a high performance, remote, self-learning Module Card Ethernet Bridge. Its compact size and low cost make it ideal for cost-sensitive bridging applications or as a LAN extender over bit stream type infrastructures. Its El data interface also provides an economical digital access solution for El and Fractional El network Services, which can work at data rates of 64Kbps to 2048Kbps. User data is placed into the El frame, using only the required number of timeslots. Timeslot assignment is accomplished according to the Data Port speed and manual setting of DIP switches. The main El link may be clocked from the recovered receive clock or from an internal oscillator. For easy to check the fault of network line, the device provides loop selection, both local loop and remote loop. Furthermore, it can be managed by the software Fi-View PC. For more rational system work station, El and Optical link can control each other.

2. Features
