Environmentally-robust, ultra-fast Connections and Secure Management
PLANET’s Industrial IXT-900 high-performance media converter series is environmentally-robust now that it comes with an extended operating temperature ranging from -40 to 75 degrees Celsius designed for challenging environments. This series features standalone secure management, setting a new standard for enterprise and telecom remote management and monitoring. The IXT-900 Industrial Series allows for seamless remote management through an intuitive web interface, command line interface (CLI), and SNMP protocol, facilitating effortless monitoring and configuration from any location.
Our cutting-edge converter features one 10GBASE-T copper port and two 10G SFP+ ports, integrating the power of 10G connectivity with the versatility of fiber and copper ports. This powerful yet compact solution makes it the ideal choice for businesses looking to boost their network speed and functionality.
10GBASE-T and 10GBASE-X SFP Dual Media Interfaces for Diversified Bandwidth Applications
The IXT-900-2X1PD can reach speeds of up to 10Gbps over copper or fiber-optic cabling, greatly improving the performance of large data transmissions. Its built-in 10GBASE-T copper interfaces feature 5-speed auto-negotiation (10G/5G/2.5G/1G/100) and can transmit data at 10Gbps over the existing Cat6/Cat6A UTP cabling, eliminating the need for expensive upgrades. With its Plug and Play design, installation is easy and hassle-free, so you can enjoy the speed you need without any extra effort.
The fiber-optic 10GBASE-X SFP+ interfaces support 4 speeds, 10GBASE-SR/LR, 2500BASE-X, 1000BASE-SX/LX and 100BASE-FX, meaning the administrator now can flexibly choose the suitable SFP/SFP+ transceiver according to the transmission distance or the transmission speed required to extend the network efficiently.
Two Fiber Optic Ports Double the Distance of Deployment
Conventional media converters typically support only a single pair of different media conversions, such as converting one fiber to one copper connection. They can extend a 100m copper connection to a maximum of 80km fiber optic connection. In contrast, the IXT-900-2X1PD has two fiber optic ports and one copper port, enabling the two fiber optic cables to connect to devices up to 160km apart so as to significantly extend the deployment distance.
Link Fault Pass-through
Link Fault Pass-through is a networking feature. It facilitates the detection and propagation of link faults or errors from one network device to another. It helps maintain network reliability and minimizes downtime by allowing devices to dynamically respond to link faults. Link Fault Pass-through improves fault detection and enables faster troubleshooting and resolution processes.
How it works:
Environmentally Hardened Design
With the IP40 industrial case, the IXT-900 series provides a high level of immunity against electromagnetic interference and heavy electrical surges which are usually found on plant floors or in curb-side traffic control cabinets without air conditioner. Being able to operate under the temperature range from -40 to 75 degrees C, the IXT-900 series can be placed in almost any difficult environment.
Effective Alarm Alert for Better Protection
The IXT-900 series supports a Fault Alarm feature which can alert the users when there is something wrong with the media converters. With this ideal feature, the users would not have to waste time to find where the problem is. It will help to save time and effort.
Network with Cybersecurity Helps Minimize Risks
The IXT-900-2X1PD is equipped with enhanced cybersecurity features to fend off cyber threats and attacks. It supports SSHv2, TLSv1.2, and SNMPv3 protocols to provide strong protection against advanced threats. To safely transmit critical data to colleagues or customers via fiber optic cabling, the IXT-900-2X1PD’s cybersecurity feature protects network management and enhances the security of mission-critical networks without incurring any additional deployment cost or effort.
Redundant Ring, Fast Recovery for Critical Network Applications
The IXT-900-2X1PD supports software-based redundant ring technology and features strong, rapid self-recovery capability to prevent interruption and external intrusions. It incorporates advanced ITU-T G.8032 ERPS (Ethernet Ring Protection Switching) technology, ensuring rapid self-recovery in ring networks. With this advanced feature, the data link recovery time can be as fast as 500ms.
IPv6/IPv4 Dual Stack Management
Supporting both IPv6 and IPv4 protocols, the IXT-900-2X1PD helps the enterprises and telecoms step in the IPv6 era with the lowest investment as their network facilities need not be replaced or overhauled if the IPv6 FTTx edge network is set up.
SNMP for Comprehensive Network Monitoring and Centralized Control
SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) provides network monitoring and management capabilities by gathering real-time information about network devices. By proactively identifying and addressing network issues, reliability and performance are improved. SNMP also facilitates centralized control of network devices, allowing for monitoring and configuration of multiple devices from a single location, reducing manual effort and enhancing operational efficiency.
Layer 2 Features
The device has a 16K-entry MAC address table that automatically removes inactive addresses. Its backbone supports speeds of up to 60Gbps, and it can handle Jumbo Frames up to 9K in size. The device is equipped with Storm Control to manage Broadcast/Multicast/Unknown Unicast traffic to prevent excessive network flooding.
Efficient Traffic Control
The IXT-900-2X1PD media converter boasts advanced QoS features and robust traffic management capabilities, optimizing the delivery of business-class data, voice, and video solutions. Its feature set includes broadcast/multicast/unicast storm control, per-port bandwidth control, and 802.1p CoS/DSCP/IP Precedence QoS priority and remarking. These capabilities guarantee optimal performance for VoIP and video stream transmission, maximizing the utilization of limited network resources for enterprises.
Intelligent SFP Diagnosis Mechanism
The IXT-900-2X1PD supports the SFP-DDM (digital diagnostic monitor) function, which greatly helps network administrators easily monitor real-time parameters of the SFP transceivers. These parameters include optical output power, optical input power, temperature, laser bias current, and transceiver supply voltage.
Remote Management Solution
PLANET's Universal Network Management System (UNI-NMS) and CloudViewerPro app support IT staff in remotely managing all network devices and monitoring the operation statuses of the IXT-900-2X1PD. These systems are designed for both enterprises and industries where the deployments of the IXT-900-2X1PD can be remote. This allows for bugs or faulty conditions to be found without having to go to the actual location. With UNI-NMS or CloudViewerPro app, all kinds of businesses can now be speedily and efficiently managed from one platform.
Fiber-optic Networking for ISPs, Enterprises and Homes
With high-speed data transmission and easy installation, the IXT-900-2X1PD can build FTTH (Fiber to the Home) and FTTC (Fiber to the Curb) for ISPs, and FTTB (Fiber to the Building) for enterprises. The IXT-900-2X1PD enables network administrators to easily monitor operations via the Web management interface.
Note: The RJ45 port is a PoE PD port that can serve as an alternative power input.
