ION Gigabit Ethernet Remotely Managed NID Module
10/100/1000Base-T to 1000Base-X with OAM/IP-Based Management

C3230 Series



The ION C3230 is a managed multi-service Network Interface Device (NID) module that provides an interface between 10/100/1000Base-T ports and 1000Base-SX/LX ports, allowing users to provide SLA-assurance and advanced fault management while integrating fiber optic cabling into 10/100/1000 copper environments. As a remotely managed device, the C3230 can be managed individually via an IP address or it can be managed by the ION Management Module when installed in a managed ION chassis. With advanced features like IEEE 802.1ag Service OAM, IEEE 802.3ah Link OAM, ITU Y.1731 Performance Monitoring, VLAN, QoS, SSH/SSL, jumbo frame support, and bandwidth allocation, the C3230 provides various methods for secure delivery of business Ethernet and mobile backhaul deployments.
