ComNet Releases New Dual Input Over SFP Media Converter

The CNMC2+1SFP/M allows for designing IP video networks with one media converter instead of two, the company says.

DANBURY, Conn. — ComNet, a manufacturer of fiber optic transmission and networking equipment, introduces a three-port media converter, the CNMC2+1SFP/M.

The unit is said to feature two TX input ports and a single SFP port for the users’ choice of fiber type, distance, connector type and speed. It also features port isolation, allowing the unit to act as two independent media converters while using a single optical fiber for transmission, according to the company.

ComNet says the key benefit of the CNMC2+1SFP/M is its ease of use. Its Mux feature is said to prevent network video flooding of multicast traffic with DIP switch selection of the fiber port as a dedicated uplink path. In addition, the unit’s 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 of the monitoring location, according to ComNet.
