Allied Telesis AT-CV5001 18-slot Converteon media converter chassis

Wednesday, 12 May, 2010



Allied Telesis has launched the AT-CV5001 18-slot managed Converteon media converter chassis that uses a highly efficient power supply and dual redundant hot swappable AC or DC power supplies with up to two redundant management cards. It replaces the AT-CV5000 chassis.

Its efficient power supply reduces overall power consumption of a fully loaded system from 175 W in the AT-CV5000 to <140 W. Compared to the 2009 model, the 2010 model, including a new chassis, PSU and blades will consume 20% less power.

The power supplies are hot swappable, which reduces system down time, as failed units can be replaced without interruption to the operation of the chassis, management or blades, as the AT-CV5001 does not need to be powered down. As part of the functionality upgrade it also allows any mix of AC or DC power supplies: either one of each or two of the same.

The device offers fast ethernet or gigabit media conversion and supports all fibre types. It also gives jumbo packet, operations, administration and management and dying gasp support. It has the ability to undertake remote configurations and uploads and has resilient management support.

The device is suitable for a number of applications including business fibre to the premises, allowing companies to deploy blades as they grow, at a lower cost than iMAP. It caters for a mixture of fibre distances and speeds; each blade can be different and support a different SFP module, therefore, each blade can support a different infrastructure. It is also suitable for factory automation applications, with their requirements for: varying lengths of fibre cables; management; ability to monitor the remote connection; and resilience and redundancy.
