  • Page 19: Fiber Optic Considerations

    Fiber Optic Considerations Fiber Optic Considerations Fiber Optic Cable Compatibility Any standard small configuration (SC) cable assembly is compatible with the MPMC221/MPMC222, if the station-connection terminal has two standard Media Interface Connectors (MIC) with a fixed shroud enclosure. Optical Bypass Relay An external Optical Bypass Relay (OBR) is used for DAS fiber configurations with the MPMC222.
  • Page 20: Optical Transceivers

    On the adapter, each transceiver typically connects to the FDDI LAN through an optical bypass relay. The MPMC221 has only one optical transceiver and therefore can not be used with an optical bypass relay.
