10/100/1000Base-T to 1000Base-X with OAM/IP-Based Management


Advanced Gigabit copper to fibre Converter
  • MEF 9, 14 and 21 certified
  • IEEE 802.3ah Link OAM
  • ITU Y.1731
  • IEEE 802.1ag Service OAM
  • 10K Jumbo Frame Support

The ION S3230 is a stand-alone managed multi-service Network Interface Device (NID) that provides an interface between 10/100/1000Base-TX ports and 1000Base-SX/LX ports, allowing users to provide SLA-assurance and advanced fault management while integrating fibre optic cabling into 10/100/1000 copper environments. As a remotely managed device, the S3230 can be managed individually via an IP address or it can be managed in-band, over the fibre when linked to a C3230 card installed in a managed ION chassis. With advanced features like IEEE 802.1ag Service OAM, IEEE 802.3ah Link OAM, ITU Y.1731 Performance Monitoring, VLAN, QoS, SSH/SSL, jumbo frame support, and bandwidth allocation, the S3230 offers a variety of methods for the secure delivery of business Ethernet and mobile backhaul deployments.
