    Additional Information

    Link Fault Signaling:
  • Link Fault Signaling (LFS) gives the host (router, server, switch), attached to each end of the converter, critical information about the status of the other remote segment link. If either link fails, the converter interacts with both hosts, making each instantly aware of the link fault. Either host can then execute preprogrammed, redundant transmission path selections. LFS is switch enabled and is available on all 100Mbps converters.

  • 100Mb Half or Full Duplex Canary converters support 100Mb auto-negotiation technology providing seamless connections every time. Full duplex operation is also supported and can be locked in via a switch.
