12
What is Media Conversion?
  • Media converters are devices that convert one
    cable type (media) to another - e.g.
  • Twisted pair (Cat 5, 5e, 6) to fiber
  • Fiber to fiber mode converter (single- to
    multi-mode)
  • Coax (10Base-2) to twisted pair
  • Converters can be
  • Ethernet based
  • Layer 1 (media) e.g. copper/fiber
  • Layer 2 (media and speed) e.g. copper/fiber
  • 10 Mbps HDX to 100 Mbps FDX
  • Protocol Independent Mode converters, T1/E1,
    DS3/E3
  • Majority of converters sold are copper to fiber

14
Where is Fiber Used?
  • Point-to-point high speed networking, e.g. FTTB
    (Building) or FTTH (Home)
  • Inter-office, e.g. short haul FTTD (Desktop)
  • Switch-to-switch links, e.g. collapsed backbone
    or star networks
  • Inter-building links, e.g. office/factory
  • Leased fiber for long distance transmission, e.g.
    FTTC (Curb)
  • Where the protocol only works with fiber, e.g.
    Fibre Channel

15
Types of Fiber
  • Multi-mode Fiber (MM)
  • Typically 50 or 62.5 micron core
  • Will work with low cost optics (LED)
  • High loss, low bandwidth, short distance
  • Relatively easy installation
  • Single-mode Fiber (SM)
  • Typically 9 micron core
  • Single strand of silica core
  • Works with LASER based optics
  • Low loss, high-bandwidth
  • Higher skilled installers needed

16
Types of Fiber (cont.)Single-Strand Fiber
  • Normally, IT equipment uses two strands one to
    receive light, the other to send
  • Now, advances in optics allow users to
    send/receive using only one strand
  • Why do this?
  • Double the data capacity of cable
  • Mix protocols over the existing fiber plant e.g.
    Ethernet over one strand, DS3/E3 over the other
  • Single-Strand versions are now available for most
    of IMC Networks products

17
Single-Strand Fiber (cont.)
  • How does it work?
  • Light is transmitted at TWO different wavelengths
    (think Wave Division Multiplexing, or think TWO
    different colors)
  • In one direction light _at_ 1310nm is used, in the
    return direction light _at_ 1550nm is used

18
Coarse Wave Division Multiplexing (CWDM)
  • Increase the capacity of existing fiber by
    multiplexing multiple optical carriers having
    different wavelengths, over the same fiber strand
  • CWDM is typically eight or fewer wavelengths per
    strand
  • Wider 20 nm channel spacing allows use of
    uncooled lasers, lowering manufacturing cost
  • CWDM versions are now available for a variety of
    IMC Networks products, including SFPs. Call for
    info.

19
Why Use Media Converters?Benefit 1 - Price
  • Optical ports on network hardware are normally
    more expensive than media converters.
  • Instead of an expensive switch with a fiber port,
    buy a fiber to copper media converter and pair it
    with a less expensive copper switch.
  • Preserve investments in expensive fiber hardware
    such as server blades, by using media converters

20
Why Use Media Converters?Benefit 2 - Flexibility
  • Easily integrate new fiber types and technologies
    with existing network hardware
  • Combine hardware designed for different fiber
    protocols onto the same network
  • Combine multiple network segments running
    different rates onto the same switch
  • Extend copper LAN segments over higher
    performance fiber links
  • e.g. Exceed the 100m range limitation of Ethernet
  • Enjoy the higher security of fiber

21
Why Use Media Converters?Benefit 3 - Simplicity
  • Simplify network cabling and protocol upgrades
  • Incremental upgrades rather than full scale
    replacement
  • Media conversion provides the perfect demarcation
    point between optical and electrical
  • Installer terminates the fiber
  • Support engineer configures the switch
  • Both installer and support engineer
  • only deal with what they understand

22
Core Product Focus FTTx Fiber To The x
  • Fastest growing subset of the Media Conversion
    market
  • Two types
  • Fiber to the neighborhood, curb or building
    (FTTN/FTTC/FTTB)
  • Fiber to the premises or home (FTTP/FTTH)

23
FTTx/ISP Market
  • Sales into operators/ISPs/FTTx outfits are
    getting stronger
  • Current product line is a pretty good fit as to
    what operators want to achieve (FTTB)
  • IMC is less expensive than using a fully
    functional switch from a major vendor
  • Far Eastern solutions do exist, but have proved
    unpopular
  • Risk, support, difficult to work with, pricing is
    not a critical issue
  • In most cases, its not the incumbent were
    selling to, but the newer operators

24
FTTx/ISP Market (cont.)
  • FTTx/ISP market is priority 1
  • Sales Are Driven by
  • Launching Applicable Product Lines
  • Educating the Distribution Base
  • Developing Reseller Program
  • Enhancing the IMC Web Site

25
FTTx Market Segments by Operator
  • Incumbent local exchange carriers
  • Competitive or emerging carriers
  • Municipalities, utilities, real estate developers
    and other operators
  • CATV operators

26
FTTH Worldwide
  • Europe From under 400,000 in 2003, the number
    of Western European homes subscribing to FTTH
    services will grow by 60 a year until at least
    2008
  • US Verizon passed 2.5 million homes in 2006 with
    FTTH, and expects that number to reach 3 million
    homes in 2007
  • US ATT (SBC) pledged to rapidly expand its
    Project Lightspeed initiative to 18 million homes
    within three years

EMEA, Yankee Group
27
FTTx in Asia Pacific
  • In China, FTTC/N LAN is proving to be a
    cost-effective way to introduce broadband to
    homes.
  • Japan has built up high-speed network
    infrastructures extending fiber all the way to
    the home to deliver a wide array of voice, data
    and multimedia applications including
    increasingly popular VoIP service.
  • In South Korea, service providers have found that
    online gaming, Video-On-Demand, and e-commerce
    are moneymaking applications that are well suited
    to the increased bandwidth of FTTx.

28
FTTx in Asia Pacific (cont.)
  • Five major countries in Asia -- Japan, South
    Korea, China, Hong Kong, and Australia -- are the
    fastest growing regional market for residential
    fiber broadband.
  • Asia as a whole, particularly the Australian and
    China markets, has tremendous growth potential
    for service and equipment providers to collect a
    portion of the flourishing FTTX market.
