Media Converters offer a cost effective and easily implemented method of extended Ethernet links over distances that exceed the capabilities of standard data cabling. As networks grow beyond the existing operating range of 100m, media converters can limit the need for several costly repeaters or intermediate switches. Typically employed in pairs, media converters convert from/to RJ45 Ethernet, along a pair of fibres. Transmission ranges are dependent on the fibre type and quality used and care should be taken when selecting the mode and connector type of your media converters to match installed fibre – ensuring distances are within the allowable range.
