Media Converter Protocols

Today’s enterprise networks support multiple network protocols due to a variety of technologies and services that are used to build the highest performing network possible. Ethernet plays the dominant role in most LANs and data center applications because it offers a variety of bandwidth options (including Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, 10 Gigabit Ethernet and others) for different network applications. Other services introduce new protocols to the network, such as analog video to support surveillance cameras, serial network protocols to support industrial controls, and T-carrier protocols (DS3, DS1 and POTS) to support carrier voice and WAN network services. With each of these networks comes the need to support physical network connectivity between different copper and fiber cabling.

Media converters are utilized to provide the flexible connectivity between these network types and services, or extend the network connections beyond cabling standards. Media converters can also be used to transition from copper to fiber-optic cables in order to extend the signal distance and maintain signal integrity in electrically noisy industrial environments.

Transition Networks supports many different kinds of media converter protocols providing the desired flexibility to all of our customers. We offer media converters of multiple form factors so you can get the media converter that is best for you and your network. Our ION Media Conversion Platform offers support for these protocols and continues to evolve to support the protocols of the future.

I have been specifically using Transition Networks’ products on my engineering products for over 10 years. I have always been pleased with their products, their support, and their willingness to listen to requests for new product development.
