, a company that delivers data, voice, and video services to a variety of clients globally, has reportedly
unveiled 18 slot managed media converter chassis called, AT-CV5001.
Designed for use in business fiber-to-the-premises and factory automation, company officials said the new AT-CV5001 converter offers efficient power supply while staying cost-effective, resilient, cross-platform compatible, and scalable.
This new model, which replaces Allied Telesis’s (News
) old model AT-CV5000 chassis, allows companies to deploy blades as they expand, at a much lower cost than iMAP or “Internet Message Access Protocol.” It even offers Fast Ethernet or Gigabit Media Conversion and supports all fiber types as well as has the ability to undertake remote configurations and uploads while offering resilient management support.
According to Nick Paredes, product marketing manager at Allied Telesis the features incorporated into the AT-CV5001 are ideal because they are both energy efficient and cost effective while giving end users confidence that their applications run uninterrupted.
The fact that the AT-CV5001 can be less expensive than an iMAP makes it a significant competitor to other existing chassis media converters on the market, Paredes said.
The AT-CV5001’s highly efficient power supply also helps in decreasing power consumption of a fully loaded system from 175 Watts to 140 Watts.
In totally, the new converter helps in saving more than 30 percent power over previous models, resulting in significant power savings.
