Gigabit Fiber Media Converter | 1Gbps RJ45 Ethernet to 1000Base-FX SFP | Fiber to Ethernet
An Ethernet media converter is a device designed to interconnect different networking media such as fiber and Copper Network cables to facilitate communication between them.
Gigabit Ethernet Media Converters was specifically designed to offer the network designer a device for migration from copper-based Ethernet to Fiber Ethernet. Now migration or expansion of existing networks can be achieved with minimum cost and complexity. The converter is completely transparent to the network so the network performs exactly the way it did before – only now it can support both copper and fiber mediums.
Enhances the Distance between Networking Devices
Connecting the converter to fiber segments can further extend distances between networking nodes. This can be achieved by direct connection between the converter and a fiber-based node or networking device.

Cabling Flexibility & Specifications
Network managers can install fiber cabling anywhere within a network without changing the arrangement of copper-based Ethernet. The compact size of the converter allows it to be easily deployed in any narrow desktop location or to be used in a wall-mount installation. Several converters can be simultaneously installed into a 19″ rack-mountable chassis.
