SWINDON, England Ultimate Renaissance has signed a sole UK distribution agreement with Fiberxon, a US manufacturer of modular interfaces for optical communication systems.
The first product to be made available as part of the deal is the FTM-5012C-L120 small form factor pluggable (SFP) transceiver. The device allows local area networks (LANs) and wide area networks (WANs) to transport gigabit signals over metropolitan distances up to 120 km.
The FTM-5012C-L120 transceiver meets IEEE 802.3 Gigabit Ethernet and ANSI Fibre Channel specifications, making it suitable for switch-to-switch interfaces, switched backplane applications, router/server interfaces, and other high speed transmission systems.
Being compliant with the SFP multi source agreement (MSA), the FTM-5012C-L120 can be interchanged, allowing networks to be upgraded and maintained more conveniently compared to soldered-in connections. It can also be installed into MSA standard SFP ports without taking the host equipment offline.
