The intelligent media converters add the capability redundancy by offering two SFP fiber ports that allow for redundant upload paths and a MUX feature for port isolation preventing network video flooding of multicast traffic multiplexing feature for port isolation that prevents network video flooding of multicast traffic redundant.

The ComNet CNGEMC4+2[POE][HO]/M is a four-port intelligent media converter. It has four 10/100/1000Base-T(X) copper ports and two 100/1000Base-FX SFP ports.

The primary purpose is as a distance extending device,” says Andrew Acquarulo Jr., ComNet CEO and president. “By adding features such as redundant SFP ports, we are offering our customers another way of making their network more reliable and immune from network path interruptions. This keeps us front and center in terms of innovation.”
