Media Converter with Gigabit Ethernet - Expand the size of an existing network

The Intellinet Network Solutions Gigabit Ethernet Media Converter offers the network designer a device for migration from copper-based Ethernet to Fiber Ethernet. It offers maximum flexibility with 10/100/1000Base-TX and auto-negotiation. Now, migration or expansion of existing networks can be achieved with minimum cost and complexity.

More connectivity options

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 media. The Gigabit Ethernet Media Converter provides fiber connectivity to Ethernet segments, allowing for even greater networking expansion between extended workgroups. It also provides building-to-building connectivity without the cost and disruption associated with installing additional routers.

Distance extension between networking devices

Connecting the converter to fiber segments further extends distances between network nodes, offering increased spatial and distance options for networks where none existed before.

Greater cabling flexibility

Network managers can install fiber cabling anywhere within a network without changing the arrangement of their 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 Gigabit Ethernet Media Converters can be simultaneously installed into a 19" rackmountable chassis (available from Intellinet Network Solutions), providing much-needed flexibility for networks.
