The iConverter 4GT is a four-port 10/100/1000 Ethernet switch. It is available as a compact unmanaged standalone unit or a managed chassis plug-in module. The plug-in modules offers networking features including rate-limiting, traffic classification and prioritization, and VLAN capability.

The four RJ-45 ports support 10/100/1000Mbps, Half/Full-Duplex and auto-negotiation. These features are configurable using DIP switches or through software management. The 4GT supports RJ-45 auto-crossover (MDI/MDI-X) on all four ports, eliminating the need for a crossover cable and facilitating connectivity to different types of Ethernet equipment.

The 4GT supports traffic prioritization according to Class of Service (CoS) prioritization scheme. Incoming frames are assigned to one of four egress queues based on the VLAN tag P-bit value. This allows high priority traffic, such as voice traffic, to egress the network with no impact from lower priority traffic during congestion.

The hot-swappable plug-in module can be mounted in a 19 or 5-Module iConverter chassis with any combination of redundant AC and DC power supplies. It can also be mounted in a 2-Module AC or DC powered chassis, or in a 1-Module chassis with AC or DC power input.

When the 4GT plug-in module is installed in an iConverter chassis, its two 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet backplane ports may provide connectivity to adjacent iConverter modules for network expansion. A common application of this feature is to combine multiple modules in a chassis to provide an Ethernet solution with four additional 10/100/1000 ports.

As a standalone unit, the 4GT is available with an external AC/DC power adapter or with a 2-position terminal connector for direct connection to DC power.

The 4GT is part of the iConverter multi-service platform, and can be installed in a chassis equipped with iConverter Network Interface Devices, media converters, transponders and CWDM multiplexers. The multi-service platform is capable of delivering Ethernet, TDM, SONET and other services across a wide area network. iConverter modules can be added to this scalable architecture to expand bandwidth capacity and add new services.
