OAM Managed Media Converters


Signamax Connectivity Systems' 065-16xxOAM series Managed Operations, Administration & Maintenance (OAM) Media Converters are designed to provide Local Exchange Carriers (LECs), Internet Service Providers (ISPs), and large installations such as airports with media conversion solutions that can provide device information, testing, and integration with standards-based operations systems in a Fiber to the Premises (FTTP) environment. These converters adhere to the IEEE 802.3ah standard for Link Monitoring, Remote Failure Indication, and Remote Loopback

The Signamax OAM media converter series are equipped with a 10/100/1000BaseT/TX RJ45 port and a fiber interface that supports either 1000Base or 100Base connections. Multimode and singlemode models share the same OAM feature set, so that commercial entities who utilize multimode fiber for their Local Area Networks (LANs) can get the same advantages of remote fault detection and testing and controlling unnecessary dispatches as carriers using singlemode fiber for their Wide-Area Networks (WANs).
