IMC Networks unveils new low cost PoE and PoE+ gigabit media converters

IMC Networks, a manufacturer of media converters and
Ethernet fiber optic access solutions for government, enterprise and service
providers, announced that it expanded its Power over Ethernet (PoE) media
converter product line with the new PoE and PoE+_Giga-MiniMcs.

Designed using the IEEE 802.3af (15.4W of power) and
802.3at (25.5W of power) PoE standards, the new products support all PoE
compatible peripheral devices.

The growing market demand to power PoE-based devices is
more prevalent now than ever, prompting IMC Networks to introduce new and
improved PoE and PoE+ media converters. The latest devices require more power
sourcing than standard PoE and as a result, we are able to meet these demands
today and in the future with new product introductions,” said David Zaveski,
senior sales engineer at IMC Networks.

The IMC PoE and PoE+ Gigabit Ethernet media converters
are classified as Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE), providing up to two PSE
10/100/1000Base-T copper ports and one SFP uplink port.

These products are ideal for the Fiber-to-the-Desktop
market where PoE phones require power sourcing or in building security
applications where reach must extend beyond 100 meters. Additionally, they
provide a low cost, space-saving Gigabit solution and include advanced features
such as Power Reset and VLAN tags.

Top key features: PoE and PoE+ power ranges on copper
ports, Configuration Power Reset, 100 Mbps and 1000 Mbps speed fiber SFPs,
10/100/1000Mbps rate conversion on copper ports, Transparent to VLAN tags and
Jumbo Frames (10240).

IMC Networks recently released
its new modular form factor IE-iMcV-MultiWay media converter. The IE-iMcV-MultiWay
is a new member of the IE-MultiWay family and offers Gigabit/Fast Ethernet
multi-function networking that performs several tasks for CPE/fiber operations.
