GST-802 10/100/1000Base-T to 1000-SX Managed Media Converter (SC,MM)

Planet GST-802 10/100/1000Base-T to 1000-SX Managed Media Converter (SC,MM)

To provide an easy use yet powerful solution for FTTX applications, Planet has released a new 10/100/1000Base-T to 1000Base-SX Smart Media Converter, GST-802, featuring plug & play and smart media conversion functions. 

Distance Extension with High Performance and Steady Network Communication

PLANET GST-802 Smart Gigabit Media Converter series extends communication distance with highly Gigabit performance via multimode fibre optical cable. The GST-802 provides media conversion between 10/100/1000Base-T and 1000Base-SX Multimode Fibre Infrastructure up to 220m / 550m using an SC fibre Interface

Enhanced Smart Management Features

The GST-802 series provides auto MDI/MDI-X on its TP port and the DIP switch to configure the available smart functions including the auto-negotiation / force for fibre interface and Link Pass-through function (LLCF/LLR). The Link Loss Carry Forward (LLCF) function works with Link Loss Return (LLR) to diagnose network connections. Also, the LLR function can immediately alarm network administrator the media link issue and provide an efficient solution to monitoring the entire network. 

Easy Installation

The GST-802 series allows two segments to connect easily. The Smart Media Converter can be used as a standalone unit when powered by its DC adapter or used as a slide-in module to PLANET 19-inch managed 16-slot media converter chassis (MC-1610MR / MC-1610MR48). When working with the Managed media converter chassis, the GST-802 is able to be managed and its status can be monitored through the local RS-232 console and remote web interface.

Fibre-Optic Networking for ISP, Enterprise, and Home

PLANET GST-802 provides advanced media conversion technology -- 10/100/1000Base-T and 1000Base-SX interfaces to fulfill different kinds of demands as the current network grows and expands. The GST-802 provides multimode fibre connectivity for different network applications. It is very flexible for the GST-802 to work as a standalone device or be installed in the central management media converter chassis for centralized management. When working with the management media converter chassis, the GST-802 is hot swappable to avoid network downtime. The GST-802 is the ideal solution to building a network solution of FTTH (Fibre to the Home) or FTTC (Fibre to the Curb), and FTTB (Fibre to the Building) for ISPs, campuses and enterprises.
