Informatics A high speed LAN hardware standard for communicating among PCs, which can link up to 1024 nodes in a bus network. See Local area network, Packet swltching. Cf Fiber distributed data interface.
The fiber optic interface includes an optical quantizer on the input and direct drive LED at the output to support small form factor (SFF), low cost, miniature components for 85 0nm 10BASE-FL and 100BASE-SX designs or 1300nm 100BASE-FX fiber implementations.
The unit features a three-slot rack that allows the switch to be configured with up to 24 10/100Base-T RJ-45 ports or 12 100Base-FX ports with any mix of a variety of single-mode and multimode slide-in modules.
A MODULAR MEDIA CONVERTER for ethernet and Fast Ethernet networks, the MIL-341 x is a 2-port switch that converts 10/100Base-TX to 100Base-FX for extending network distances from about 1.25 miles to 62 miles.
