    Benefits :

  • Expands the size of an existing network - provides fiber connectivity to Gigabit segments for even further networking expansion between extended workgroups. The converter also provides building-to-building connectivity, without the need to employ expensive MIS intensive routers.
  • Enhances the distance between networking devices
  • Connecting our Gigabit Media Converter to fiber segments can further extend distances of up to 80 km between networking nodes.
  • Loop back test can be enabled via a DIP switch remote or local loop back to instantly determine status of the cable connection.
  • Support Nway - The converter supports auto negotiation to eliminate the need to manually configure or monitor the settings ensuring plug and play operability.
  • Cabling flexibility - Allows network managers to put fiber anywhere within a network without changing the arrangement of copper based Gigabit. The compact converter is easily deployed in any small desktop location or wall mount installation.
  • Several converters can also be simultaneously installed in a rack mount chassis.
  • Lifetime System Warranty

    The converters are completely transparent when installed, so a network enhanced with one performs in exactly the same way as it always has, but with the added ability to migrate between copper and fiber. The converters feature remote and local loop-back testing capabilities, as well as auto-negotiation for total reliability. In addition, four DIP switches - for the manual activation of enhanced features - allow the converter to quickly integrate into a network configuration.

    Available in both single-mode and multi-mode.
