We are pleased to announce the expansion of the Versimux II platform of fiber optic multiplexer products. In addition to supporting up to 152 2-wire analog telephone circuits over 1 fiber, the Versimix II now also supports copper to fiber conversion for a wide range of serial data interfaces.
A combination of voice and/or data cards can be configured within the same chassis, thus offering significant savings to the end-user. A typical application will consist of 1-19 cards installed in a VMX20 chassis, linked via fiber optic cable to a second VMX20 chassis where 1-19 "sister" cards are installed. For further flexibility, a mix of analog phone mux cards and serial data cards can be used in any combination up to 19 cards per chassis.
Using SFP module technology, the Versimux II offers the flexibility of using one or two strands of either multimode or singlemode fiber for distances of up to 80km with no optical adjustments required.
A typical phone installation utilizes an exchange card(s) at the PBX end of the link, connected via fiber optic cable to a subscriber card(s) at the telephone end of the link. Both types of multiplexer cards utilize standard RJ-11 phone jacks for plug and play, adjustment-free installation and operation. LED indicators are provided to instantly monitor the operating status of each multiplexer card and phone port. Multiplexer phone cards that support RS-485 data have an RJ-45 jack and support data rates up to 64Kbps.

A typical 2-wire analog phone installation utilizes an exchange card (s) at the PBX end of the link, connected via fiber optic cable to a subscriber card(s) at the telephone(s) end of the link. Both exchange and subscriber multiplexer port cards are offered in 1-channel, 4-channel, and 8-channel versions. All 2-wire analog phone multiplexer port cards utilize standard RJ-11 phone jacks for plug and play, adjustment-free installation and operation. LED indicators are provided to instantly monitor the operating status of each multiplexer card and phone port. The 1-channel and 4-channel multiplexer phone port cards are available with RS-485/RS-422 data as an optional feature. These dual purpose port cards can handle data rates up to 64Kbps and have an RJ45 jack in addition to the RJ11 phone jack.
A choice of 3 housing options are available when using the 2-wire analog telephone multiplexer port cards:
VMX20 20-slot, rackmount chassis (4U) HF2SS 2-slot, rackmount chassis (1U) HF1 1-slot, standalone enclosure
These housing options, when combined with the selection of 1-channel, 4-channel, or 8-channel multiplexer port cards, provides the utmost in configuration flexibility. Using these “building blocks”, a customized phone mux design is easily created for 1 to 152 phone lines AND can be readily modified should phone system requirements change.
When 8 or fewer 2-wire analog phone lines need to be multiplexed, the Versimux II products offer the perfect solutions. By using the 4-channel or 8-channel multiplexer port cards as standalone devices, the end-user can readily create a phone mux for 1-4 or 1-8 phone lines. The VMX4E and VMX4S multiplexer port cards are utilized to create a phone mux which supports 1-4 phone lines. The VMX8E and VMX8S multiplexer port cards are utilized to create a phone mux which supports 1-8 phone lines. In these configurations, SFP modules (sold separately) are installed on the port cards to provide the fiber optic interface. Multimode and singlemode options are available. The 4-channel port cards are also available which support RS-485, or RS-422 data up to 64Kbps. These “TeleData” multiplexer port cards are models VMX4ED (exchange side) and VMX4SD (subscriber side).
Whether 4-channel phone, 4-channel phone/data or 8 channel phone, any of these multiplexer port cards can be installed in the HF2SS rackmount chassis or HF1 standalone enclosure. The PSAC20 power supply completes the installation for each multiplexer port card.
