The DES-102F is an optional slide in two-port Ethernet module designed to
support the DSS-24+ Switch, which increases connection distances without
requiring signal regeneration.
The DES-102F is a two-port Ethernet module design to support the DSS-24+ Switch
as an optional slide in module, which provides a two port 100BASE-FX Fast
Ethernet connection. As an expansion module, the DES-102F increases connection
distances without requiring signal regeneration using a repeater to re-boost the
signal. With the two SC type port connectors, connection utilizing a fiber link
can be initiated to servers or backbone switches for network expansion. DES-102F
is targeted at small and medium businesses.
The DES-102F is compliant with
IEEE 802.3u 100BASE-FX standard, supporting both auto-negotiation at full duplex
modes and flow control signaling on each individual port. Being an expansion
module, the DES-102F endorses all of the Layer 2 functionalities of the DSS-24+.
