ComNet Eliminates Ordering Confusion
ComNet, Communication Networks of Danbury, Connecticut, a USA-based manufacturer of fiber optic transmission and networking equipment, is introducing a variable rate electrical-to-optical media converter with PoE (power over Ethernet) that allows the user to select between 10/100 Mbps and 1000Mbps rate transmission and provides up to 30 watts of PoE+ for powered devices (PD).
ComNet designed this hardened media converter, the CNMCSFP for applications where there is a potential upgrade to Gigabit transmission or as method to reduce the number of individual media converter models being used. This multiple rate feature can eliminate future hardware up grade costs. The CNMCSFP uses small form factor (SFP) devices, giving the user flexibility in terms of fiber type, connector type and distance. The CNSFPMC is made in the USA and comes with a Lifetime Warranty.
According to Andrew Acquarulo Jr., ComNet President and COO, “This fiber optic media converter solves many challenges our customers face on a daily basis. We’ve found that many of our customers want to specify the right equipment for today’s and tomorrow’s requirements. Fiber Optic transmission gives an application an extreme level of flexibility in terms of available bandwidth.”
“The CNMCSFPPoE now adds to that. In effect, once in place, there is virtually no Ethernet bandwidth requirement that cannot be accommodated. With the proliferation of PoE devices, adding a PoE model was a logical extension,” Acquarulo concluded.
“With the introduction of the CNMCSFP multi-rate media converter, we continue to round out our Ethernet offerings and solve a multitude of challenges our customers face,” said Skip Haight, ComNet VP of Marketing. “ComNet understands the benefits of Ethernet and with the CNMCSFP, we have continued to introduce solutions that eliminate our customers’ challenges,” Haight continued.
