SSETF1011-205 and SSETF1013-205 10/100BASE-TX to 10/100BASE-SX Media Converter
SSETF1011-205 and SSETF1013-205 10/100 10/100BASE-TX to 10/100BASE-SX Media Converter
Lowest possible cost solution for fiber installation up to 60 meters (100BASE-SX)
Ideal for building backbone and horizontal cabling applications where cost and 10/100
auto-negotiation are critical
Extend Network Distance using the SSETF1011-205 or SSETF1013-205
Used in pairs, this media converter can extend distances between two twisted pair switches or a switch and a server up to 60 meters over multimode
Connect Remote Devices
Using a single SSETF1011-205 or SSETF1013-205 10/100BASE-SX media converter, a switch with a copper port can be connected to a switch or any other 10/100BASE-SX compliant device with an existing fiber interface.
SSETF1011-205 and SSETF1013-205 features include:
Link Pass Through
Efficient and Reliable - The 10/100 SX Media Converter operates easily under heavy traffic loads without generating excess heat; meaning a failure-prone internal fan is unnecessary.
Automatic Link Restoration
SSETF1011-205 and SSETF1013-205 Auto-Negotiation (802.3u)
Auto-Negotiation allows devices to perform automatic configuration to achieve the best possible mode of
operation over a link. Devices with this feature will broadcast their speed (10Mbps, 100Mbps, etc.) and
duplex (half/full) capabilities to other devices and negotiate the best mode of operation between the two
No user intervention required to determine best mode of operation
Optimal link established automatically
Quick and easy installation
While the inclusion of this feature is beneficial, the ability to disable it is equally beneficial. In the event of a
non-negotiating end device trying to connect to a negotiating device, the mode of operation will drop to the
least common denominator between the two devices (i.e. 100Mbps, half-duplex). Disabling this feature
gives the user the ability to force the connection to the best mode of operation when trying to link with a
non-negotiating device. Most Transition converters with Auto-Negotiation will allow you to
disable this feature.
AutoCross™ of Transition Networks SSETF1011-205 and SSETF1013-205 10/100 10/100BASE-TX to 10/100BASE-SX Media
Automatically detects and configures the twisted pair port on the converter to the correct MDI or MDI-X
Eliminates an entire category of troubleshooting
No need to identify cable type—straight-through or crossover
No user intervention required to determine correct button / switch settings
SSETF1011-205 and SSETF1013-205 Link Pass Through
Link Pass Through is a troubleshooting feature that prevents media converters from isolating link failures
and it allows end devices to be notified in the event of a loss of link. Link Pass Through provides the media
converter with the ability to monitor both the fiber and the copper RX ports for a loss of signal. If a loss of
RX signal occurs on one media port, the converter will automatically disable the TX signal on the other port.
By shutting down the fiber TX port, the link failure is “passed through” to the remote converter and device
(see diagram below).
End device automatically notified of link loss
Prevents loss of valuable data unknowingly transmitted over an invalid link
Automatic Link Restoration
Transition Networks's SSETF1011-205 and SSETF1013-205 converters will automatically re-establish link in all network conditions.
No need to reset devices
Transition Networks's converters will automatically re-establish link when connected to switches if link was
lost. With other manufacturers' converters the user must reset the converter to re-establish the link.
Automatic Link Restoration allows the users to continue using Auto-Negotiation with Link Loss Notification
features. With other manufacturers' converters the user must disable Auto-Negotiation and hard set the link.
Link Pass Through Activated in both directions
Automatic Link Restoration on Transition Networks's SSETF1011-205 and SSETF1013-205
allows users to continue using Link Loss Notification feature activated in both directions. Many competitive solutions allow for Link Loss Notification
activation only in one direction. If Link Loss feature is activated in both directions, competitive products are
put in a "deadly embrace" and they cannot restore the link without resetting the converters.
