A Fiber Optic Media Converter is a simple networking device that makes it possible to connect two dissimilar media types. Media Converters were introduced to the industry nearly two decades ago and are important in interconnecting fiber optic cabling-based systems with existing copper-based, structured cabling systems. They are also vastly implemented in metropolitan area network (MAN) access and data transport services to enterprise customers.
Fiber Savvy offers the following categories of Fiber Media Converter products:
- Standard Fiber Media Converters
- SFP Media Converters
- Media Converter Chassis (compatible with your Fiber Optic Media Converter)
Standard Fiber Ethernet Media Converters provide the basic data conversion from copper to fiber without including a transceiver within the unit. Fiber Savvy supplies this type of Fiber Media Converter in 10/100BASE Fast Ethernet, 10/1000BASE Gigabit and 1000BASE Pure Gigabit versions.
Our Standard Media Converters are available in both single mode and multimode variations. The Media Converter, Single Mode, Gigabit Ethernet, 10KM, SC Connector is made to handle 10, 100, and 1000BASE-T Gigabit network standards. This Standard Media Converter covers a distance of up to 10 Kilometers and supports auto-negotiation in TP port to detect speed as well as duplex mode automatically. This unit has four transmitting modes and a selectable optical link loss alarm.
Fiber Savvy also supplies SFP Fiber Media Converters, which include the transceiver slot. The Media Converter, 10/100/1000M Gigabit Ethernet, SFP Transceiver Slot is an SFP Media Converter built to convert 10/100/1000BASE-TX to 1000BASE-FX or vice versa. This SFP Media Converter is designed to handle both single mode and multimode fiber optic cable. This SFP Media Converter works with single mode fiber measuring 9/125 and 10/125 microns and with multimode fiber measuring 50/125 and 62.5/125 microns.
The Media Converter Chassis ensures the seamless operation of your network for years to come; they often include a redundant power supply and hot swapping functionality. Some also include cooling fans, extending the life of network components. Media Converter Rackmount Chassis with Power Supply, 14 Slots
