ION DS3-T3/E3 Network Interface Device Module
DS3 – T3/E3 Coax over Fiber

C6210 Series



The ION C6210 is a managed media converter module that provides a solution for those users that need to extend DS3-T3/E3 connections over fiber. The C6210 is available in versions that support fixed fiber connectors as well as SFP fiber modules offering support for a variety of fiber types, distances, and wavelengths to provide maximum flexibility across a variety of network topologies. CWDM SFPs can also be utilized to further increase the bandwidth capacity of the fiber infrastructure.

The C6210 DS3-T3/E3 converters must be used in pairs. A typical installation will include a modular card installed in a managed ION chassis linked over fiber to a stand-alone S6210 in a remote location.
