The iConverter 4Tx VT 10/100 managed Ethernet switch module is a member of the iConverter product family. It provides a compact 4-Port 10/100 Ethernet switch that is expandable across the iConverter 19-Module, 5-Module and 2-Module chassis backplanes, as well as being supported as a stand-alone switch with the iConverter 1-Module Chassis.

The iConverter 4Tx VT supports the IEEE 802.1Q and 802.1p standards. It supports the 802.1Q VLAN packet tagging and untagging for segregating data in Enterprise networks, and enabling secure separation of Service Provider network management and customer data to improve security and intrusion protection.

The 802.1Q Q-in-Q stacked tags enable Service Providers to offer to their customers secure Ethernet Virtual Private Line services which isolates each customer's data traffic, as well as the Service Provider's management traffic.

The 4Tx VT supports the 802.1p prioritization for the delivery of Quality of Service (QoS) to real-time applications such as voice or video over Ethernet.

The iConverter 4Tx VT features Bandwidth and Port Access Controls. On a per port basis, the upstream and downstream traffic can be independently controlled by selecting from eight levels of bandwidth setting. The Port Access Control enables the network administrator to easily control and deny individual port access while maintaining port configuration for easy port re-enabling.

The ports feature 10/100Mbps, Half/Full-Duplex, and autonegotiation with both hardware and software controls. Hardware control is available for two ports while all four ports are under software control for these features. RJ-45 crossover support eliminates need for a crossover cable and facilitates connectivity to different types of network equipment. All four ports support an automatic crossover detection mode.

Two Ethernet backplane ports provide connectivity to adjacent modules for network expansion and for providing additional 10/100 UTP ports for iConverter modular NIDs.

The 4Tx VT supports reporting of MIB statistics. Statistics are available for 32 variables per port, reporting a wide range of real-time packet statistics to provide performance and operational monitoring.

The iConverter family of managed fiber access media converters are used in Service Provider access networks and Enterprise LANs. iConverter media converters provide fiber connectivity with copper-to-fiber, multimode fiber to single-mode fiber, or dual fiber to single-fiber conversions.
