Fiber Optic Media Converters – a simple, flexible, and cost-effective solution for the future of fiber optic networks
Nowadays, technology evolves at the speed of light. The constant increase in users’ demands when it comes to communication technologies and milieus, the continuing growth in data traffic and the increasing demand for bandwidth, pressure the network operators to make their network faster, more secure and more reliable. Instead of costly replacing the whole network infrastructure, Fiber Optic Media Converters provide a cost-effective solution to accommodate and extend the life of legacy systems.
So, how exactly Fiber Optic Media Converters work?
A Media Converter is a network device that facilitates the connection of a multitude of devices, media converters lend flexibility to the network. They support connections to and from switches, hubs, routers, and even direct to servers.
The most commonly used media converters support twisted-pair-to-fiber connections. Their main function is to convert the electrical signal used in UTP network cabling into light waves.
Common Types of Fiber Optic Media Converters
Fiber-Fiber Media Converters – Fiber conversion and extension
Bi-di Fiber Media Converters – Ethernet to single fiber
Auto-sensing Ethernet Media Converters – Fiber to RJ-45
Video Optical Media Converters – HDMI and SDI to fiber
All the above can be provided by PeakOptical. We offer a line of Ethernet media converters, which transform your fiber network to 10/100Mb/s or gigabit ethernet. Ranges are from 500 meters to 100 km.
