Perle Systems Releases MCR200 Dual Slot Media Converter Chassis

The MCR200 2-slot chassis enables the roll-out of any two copper to fiber, multimode to single mode or multimode to multimode Media Converter Modules that share a single power source.

Nashville, TN, June 10, 2012 --( Perle Systems, a global provider of advanced Ethernet over fiber and secure device networking solutions, is pleased to announce the release of the MCR200 Media Converter Chassis. The MCR200 is a compact 2-slot chassis that provides housing for any combination of Perle copper to fiber, multimode to single mode or multimode to multimode Media Converter Modules.

“The mix and match flexibility of the MCR200 enables the chassis to support a wide variety of network structures where a limited number of fiber converters need to be quickly implemented,” says Al Davies, Director of Product Marketing at Perle Systems.

Two unmanaged media converter modules can be installed in an MCR200 chassis. Sharing the same chassis power source, this cost effective solution eliminates the need for two power sources required by separate standalone media converters.

When equipped with a managed media converter and MCR-MGT management module, the MCR200 2-slot Chassis provides a securely managed media converter solution for Enterprise and Service Provider networks. Perle supports all authentication, authorization and accounting (AAA) security services used in corporate networks, including TACACS+, RADIUS, LDAP, Kerberos, NIS and RSA. To further protect ID’s and passwords from someone ‘snooping’ on the network, Perle Managed Media Converters provide secure management sessions by supporting SSH, SNMPv3, Telnet and HTTPS. And, advanced features enable users to optimize network traffic and resource allocation.
