The FED-6944 is a dedicated 6 port, Gigabit Ethernet switch. 3 copper ports provide 1Gb/s connectivity for multiple Ethernet enabled devices or links to additional network switches. 4 optical ports provide an Ethernet link over two, dual fiber connections for extended distances. An additional port is available for the OG3 frame’s optional internal GigE controller.
The FED-6944 is available in several varieties: The FED-6944-20 transceiver is capable of running up to a 20km link between a 2nd FED-6944-20, or any other transceivers of similar specifications. 40km and 80km variations are also available and achieved by using higher output power transmitters and higher sensitivity receiver SFPs.
CWDM options are available in standard and high sensitivity SFPs for use with external CWDM multiplexer and de-multiplexer systems. Up to 16 independent optical signals can be multiplexed down a single fiber. This allows up to 8 full duplex, gigabit Ethernet links over a single fiber, or any combination of audio, video and data optical signals using other Ross Video CWDM fiber products.
