Omnitron Media Converter. Military Application Examples
Omnitron managed and unmanaged media converters, CWDM multiplexers and T1/E1 multiplexers, distributed by Cubitel enable integration of different cabling types and expand the capabilities of LAN and WAN networks.
- Hardened with temperature ranges of -40º to 75º C.
- Modular architecture for rack mount and standalone deployments.
- A variety of AC and DC power options.
Omnitron media converters provide a variety of fiber connectivity solutions for federal government and military networks:
- Seamlessly connect copper and fiber to extend network distances:
- LAN and WAN networks.
- Sea vessels and aircraft.
- Surveillance networks.
- Deploy fiber in Military field operations.
- Deliver carrier-grade Ethernet for monitoring and fault management of mission critical networks.
- Extend distances to PoE/PoE+ cameras and Wireless Access Points with fiber.
- Deploy Fiber-to-the-Desk (workstation, thin client, video console, VoIP phones).
- Multiplex multiple T1/E1 circuits over fiber.
- Expand fiber network capacity with CWDM.
Military Media Converter Application Examples:
Extend Distances to Radar Installations
The iConverter X21 serial to fiber converter enables controlling radar installations from remote distances by extending X21 and serial 530 Crypto Circuits over Fiber to SATCOM Antennas and Radar Installations. The iConverter X21 supports fiber links of up to 120km over single-mode fiber, and is wide temperature hardened for extreme environments.
Deploy Multiple Fiber Satellite Uplinks
Northrop Grumman is building a network-centric system for integrating sensors, shooters and battle management, command, control, communications and intelligence systems for Army Air and Missile Defense. The Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System (IBCS) will allow warfighters to take advantage of expanded sensor and weapon system combinations via an integrated fire control network.
miConverter media converters are IBCS components that enable fiber optic connectivity between satellite equipment and workstations (portable laptops and/or desktops depending on locations).
In this application diagram, miConverter 18-module chassis with miniature miConverter media converters are deployed at a satellite uplink and at a facility with workstations. Sixteen fiber optic cables are run between the two locations, and cable transports 100Mbps Ethernet data for communications with other Army Air and Missile Defense vehicles and bases.
At the workstation facility, the media converters provide copper-to-fiber conversion for connectivity to PCs or laptop computers. At the satellite uplink, media converters provide fiber connectivity to sensors and communications devices with RJ-45 ports.
miConverter miniature media converters feature a compact form factor and support a wide temperature range of -40 to +60oC to provide a reliable and cost-effective fiber connectivity solution for military communications.
Extend Distances to Targets in Digital Training Ranges
This application example illustrates how to deploy Fiber-to-the-Target in a Digital Training Range. A FlexPoint 14-Module Chassis with 10/100 Media Converters enables up to fourteen fiber runs from a 10/100 copper switch in the control tower to digital target sensors on a training range.
100Mbps dual or single-fiber is linked to FlexPoint 10/100 unmanaged media converters installed in NEMA enclosures at each target. The NEMA enclosure provides weather-proof durability, and FlexPoint media converters are hardended with an operating tempurature range of -40 to +75oC for deployments in severe environments.
