Fiber Media Converters
Media converters act as a bridge between two physical media – generally copper to optical. These devices can be stand alone Ethernet to Fiber or SFP modules for use in switches and routers. We stock both varietals, and both are dual wavelength allowing bi-directional transmission on a single strand of fiber. Use these devices to provide simple data links for equipment control, or for high volume digital media data transfer from one on-site location to another.
