A fibre media converter is a simple networking device that makes it possible to connect two dissimilar media types such as twisted pair with fibre optic cabling. They are important in interconnecting fibre optic cabling-based systems with existing copper-based, structured cabling systems.
Fibre media converters support many different data communication protocols including Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, T1/E1/J1, DS3/E3, as well as multiple cabling types such as coax, twisted pair, multi-mode and single-mode fibre optics.
Convert your copper RJ-45 Ethernet connection to a fiber connection with TRENDnet's fiber media converters. TRENDnet's media converters can support long distance fiber networking up to 43.5 miles (70km).
TRENDnet fiber converters are available in both multi-mode (SX) and single-mode (LX), with dual wavelength (WDM) or bidirectional fiber options, and multiple connector types including T-RJ, SC, and ST.
