IP/Ethernet functionality in CFO mechanics
The CFO product family is also able to support system migrations to full IP only. CRG100 and CRG101 media converters are pure IP/Ethernet products compatible with all CFO series mechanical installation schemes. On an existing CFO system, an analogue video link can be easily replaced with CRG series products in cases where an old analogue camera is replaced by an IP camera without the need to alter the main fibre cabling.
Managed and unmanaged choices
The CRG101 is a smart and managed media converter. The device settings can be done over a web user interface. In addition, the unit has SNMP support. The diagnostics is extensive, also locally on device front panel LEDs. For optical operation, both Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet SFP transceivers are applicable.
For simple use and fixed Gigabit operation, a good choice is the CRG100 series media converter. The device configuration is easy, with a few basic settings over DIP switches. The most important diagnostics information is presented on device LEDs. Both the electrical and optical SFP interface supports only the fixed Gigabit Ethernet rate (1000Base-TX/FX).
CRG101 and CRG100 can be used together in mix-and-match fashion when the link data rate is defined as Gigabit Ethernet and compatible SFP optics are used.
