Fiber Ethernet Transceiver

The Ethernet UTP port incorporates auto speed negotiation, auto-crossover for MDI/MDI-X, and full or half duplex. Speed and activity indicators are provided for this port on the rear panel. The SFP optical interface supports a loop back test, and lost link forwarding (LLF). Link activity and LLF status indicators are provided for this port on the rear panel. Housed in a Densité frame and easily controllable via the GV Orbit or iControl software, or the frame controller menu, the FXE-1501 occupies only one slot.


  • 10/100/1000 Base-T Ethernet to fiber
