Tahoe 901

Single port 10GBASE-T to 10GBASE-R media converter

Tahoe 901 is a single port 10GBASE-T to 10GBASE-R media converter. The product leverages existing infrastructure investment by converting 10GBASE-R to 10GBASE-T bi-directionally with no packet loss. Tahoe 901 can be deployed in a tabletop form factor or rackmounted using an optional rackmount plate (shown in the figure below). The media converter comes with SFP+ multimode or SFP+ single mode media. Tahoe 901 can be used with Category 6A or Category 7 UTP copper Ethernet cabling. Tahoe 901 is designed to integrate into lab testing and production environments.

Tahoe 901 provides major features that are essential in today’s data centers:
  • Single port 10GBASE-T (RJ-45) support
  • Single port 10GBASE-SR or 10GBASE-LR support
  • Full duplex media conversion with no packet loss
  • Low latency – 1.55 μsec
  • Supports transmission distance up to 50 meters over CAT 6A or CAT 7 cabling
  • Plug and play – no additional drivers/configuration required
  • Compact form factor: 7.80 inches by 4.4 inches
  • Rackmountable with optional bracket (up to three Tahoe 901s in 1U)
  • Cost-effective alternative to replacing expensive network equipment due to media incompatibility
