Fiber Media Converter is a simple network equipment, supporting a number of different data communication protocols, including Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, Serial Datacom interfaces, E1 or T1 voice/data communications and multiple wiring types, such as coaxial cable, twisted pair, single mode and multimode optical fiber. Media conversion types range from small independent equipment and PC card converter, high-end mouth density chassis provides many advanced features, network management system.
Fiber media converters are key components of optical networking because its long distance operation, high bandwidth capacity and reliability make fiber optics the most desired channel for data communications. Instead of costly, across-the-board upgrades, media converters can extend the productive life of the existing cabling as well as the active equipment. Fiberstore offer a full range of fiber media converters such as Ethernet Media Converter, 10/100/1000 media converters, Gigabit Ethernet converters, multimode single mode media converter and media converter rack chassis on sale at reasonable prices and worldwide delivery,the Ethernet Media Converter is the most common type of fiber optic media converter, to visit FS.COM to choose your Fiber Media Converters now.Buy with confidence.
Ethernet Media Converter can connect to various optical fiber cable such as multimode, single mode or single strand fiber cable. Options exist for many distances to suit the needs of a particular ethernet to fiber application. And, fiber interface connectors can be dual ST, dual SC, dual LC or single SC type.
Why use media converters at all? This question does not have a technical answer but the answer is more commercial – media converters do not require fiber enabled switches (they can be used even with unmanaged entry level switches) and hence the connectivity solution is cost effective. For a single fiber link, changing the whole switches and buying fiber modules at either end might be a more expensive proposition. But direct termination of fiber links on network switches is also highly recommended.
Not only that, the media converter offers more choices, you can buy a single pair of media converter (stand alone devices) at either end or get a Media Converter Chassis based system, where you can insert multiple media converters from 1 to 18/19 in single increments, they are also support hot swappable, switch with redundant power supplies and power source consolidation.But network switches come with more rigid configurations – 2, 4, 24 or 48 ports only. If you want 5 fiber connections, for example, you may need to buy two network switches with 4 fiber ports each and 24/48 copper ports each irrespective of whether you are going to use the remaining fiber and copper ports! And yeah, some of the network switches do not have fiber interfaces at all.
