Media Converters Gigabit Ethernet Media Converter


Basically, media converters are simple devices that are used to connect two devices or LANs that are not fully compatible, due to different speeds, types of operation, modes or types of media (twisted pair, fiber, coaxial cable). The most common use is the integration of fiber optic segments in copper networks This gives you the possibility to extend your Ethernet network beyond the limit of 100 meters imposed by the copper cable.

Media converters can be used anywhere in the network to integrate new technologies into existing equipment, to support new applications, technologies and future growth. Instead of making expensive updates, media converters can extend the productive life of existing wiring.
