The CV1KSS module for the Converteon chassis provided a managed conversion from 1000Mbps SFP to SFP.
This can be achieved in two ways – depending on the actual installation.
Option 1. 1000BaseT to SFP
If one of the ports on the CV1KSS was populated with a SPTX (10/100/1000T Copper SFP module), then a direct replacement for the CV1KSS would be the CM3K0S. This module has one fixed copper port and an SFP port. The same functionality of Missing Link and Smart Missing Link is also supported.
Option 2. Optical SFP to SFP.
This functionality can only be achieved using two CM3K0S modules connecting the two copper ports back to back. This provides two SFP slots for the optical modules, and supports the same functionality of Missing Link and Smart Missing Link.
This solution obviously occupies two slots in a chassis.
