B&B Electronics Manufacturing Company, Inc. Develops Modular Generation Four-Port IE-iMcV-MultiWay Gigabit Ethernet Media Converter
Mar 18 14
B&B Electronics announced that it has developed a modular generation four-port IE-iMcV-MultiWay Gigabit Ethernet Media Converter that can install in AC or DC internal-powered chassis. The modular version joins B&B Electronics’ existing DIN-Rail or wall-bracket-mountable standalone version for managing remote devices and central office network connections in the security, traffic and remote-monitoring markets. Both versions are designed for use as CPE (Customer Premises Equipment) devices at the network edge as well as in fiber infrastructures, and feature rugged temperature specs (-40 to +85 C). The modular converter, developed for customers who have invested in chassis-based infrastructure to help them maximize their cost per slot, can be installed in low or high-density-port chassis, including those offering extended temperature. With two SFP (Small Form Pluggable) fiber uplink ports and two 10/100/1,000 Mbps Base-T copper ports, Ethernet network administrators can connect various devices using both copper ports and one fiber port, while designating the other fiber port for the secure network connection. SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) and other troubleshooting capabilities provide functionality similar to that of a Layer 2/3 switch, offering a cost effective alternative to these traditional fiber switches. The IE-iMcV-MultiWay is geared towards enterprise gigabit networking applications where there is a need to securely move large amounts of data over long distances of fiber with remote management, and to reduce onsite visits for troubleshooting network equipment. Such geographically dispersed enterprises and applications include ISPs, Telcos, municipalities (traffic signals and digital signage), and all kinds of physical security. The IE-iMcV-MultiWay can mimic a traditional fiber switch and serve as a central office infrastructure connection with the troubleshooting functionality expected by network administrators to avoid unnecessary truck rolls. It offers status monitoring (interface and RMON1 statistics, OAM status and control) with management on all ports via SNMP. Part of the IEEE 802.3ah and 802.1ag standard, OAM (Operations, Administration and Management) defines how to manage, monitor and test network equipment. Also included is port-based VLAN and VLAN trunks, IEEE 802.1ad (Q-in-Q) and a user definable EtherType. A swiss-army-knife-type tool for network connectivity and management, the IE-iMcV-MultiWay can play multiple roles: managed fiber termination, fiber repeater, mode converter, multi-port switch, dual independent media converter and media converter with 1+1 redundant fiber uplink.

Digi-Key Corporation Announces Partnership with B&B Electronics and Jazz Wireless to Offer Spectre 3G Router/ SIM Card Bundle
Jul 30 13
Digi-Key Corporation announced a partnership with B&B Electronics and Jazz Wireless to provide a 3G Router/SIM Card bundle for low data customers developing industrial monitoring and control applications. Built for plug-and-play simplicity with extensive remote management, deployment and customization options, the rugged SPECTRE 3G wireless router wirelessly extends local M2M networks connected via Ethernet 10/100, RS-232 or RS-422/485 with enhanced features such as Modbus TCP to Modbus RTU conversion. Users manage the router's robust configuration options through a secure and easy-to-use Web interface or a powerful scripting engine. A rugged metal casing with a wide operating range (-30 to 60degC) and DIN-rail mounts make the SPECTRE 3G ideal for M2M connectivity in harsh or remote environments. Remote applications that require the ability to interface via serial communications, Ethernet or Wi-Fi in one box are very easy to set up and deploy. The router uses open standards such as IPSec and OpenVPN as connectivity options. Jazz Wireless Data's sophisticated online data management portal allows users to easily monitor and manage their data plan, including purchasing additional time or data options for their SIM cards, or to transition the prepaid card to a monthly-based service at any time.
