Gigabit Media Converter with Fiber

A Gigabit media converter is a device which integrates two or more dissimilar networks through signal conversion. The differences in two or more networks may be due to different cable types, model of operation, speed, signaling pattern, and so on. Using this Gigabit media converter with fiber helps extend the geographical transmission distance of a network by  many kilometers. This is most commonly seen in blended networks where fiber optics is implemented for seamless connectivity, enhanced speed and transmission rates. VERSITRON’s 10/100/1000 Gigabit media converter enables a user to convert 10Base, 100Base, or Gigabit Ethernet speeds to 1000Base Fiber Optic. This fiber to Gigabit converter is compatible with 17 different SFP modules for fiber connectivity. These 10/100/1000 media converters by VERSITRON are applicable for single mode as well as multimode networks. This Ethernet-to-fiber converter supports a distance of up to 100 km.

    Beneficial Features of Gigabit Media Converters

    Here are some beneficial features of our 10/100/1000 triple duty Gigabit media converters:
    • This media converter has a 10/100/1000Mbps copper port as well as an SFP fiber port.
    • The 1000Mbps SFP fiber port supports duplex and simplex 1000Base fiber optic SFP modules with LC connectors that you can purchase separately.
    • These 10/100/1000 Ethernet media converters can operate in half or full duplex mode and have the back pressure flow control feature in the half duplex mode.
    • This triple duty media converter supports full wire speed conversion when transmitting and receiving data.
    • You can use these fiber optic media converters in managed as well as unmanaged networks.
    • Auto MDI/MDI-X stands for automatic medium-dependent interface crossover. This feature determines the cable type connected. The RJ-45 connector with this media converter supports MDI/MDI-X for straight-through or cross-over cables.
    • This gigabit media converter supports jumbo packets up to 9K bytes and comes with a high efficiency SRAM for packet buffer.
    • This media converter has an option for bi-directional communication which means you can send and receive data at the same time.
    • This media converter can be used as standalone device or rack mounted in the MCC-14R chassis.
    • This gigabit to fiber Ethernet media converter utilizes the SFP GBIC technology for the fiber optic interface, providing SFP installation flexibility. SFP GBIC modules are available in single mode as well as multimode, and you can buy them separately despite of the difference between single mode and multimode
