Gigabit Ethernet (1000Mb) Media Converters

Gigabit Ethernet (IEEE 802.3-2008), also referred to as GbE or 1 GigE, is an extension of the Ethernet protocol that has a maximum data rate of 1 gigabit per second (Gbps). Gigabit Ethernet uses point-to-point configuration with each Ethernet cable having two devices on it. There are five physical layer standards for Gigabit Ethernet using optical fiber (1000Base-X), twisted pair cable (1000Base-T), or shielded balanced copper cable (1000Base-CX). Gigabit Ethernet is used as the backbone in many enterprise networks.

With Gigabit Ethernet media converters, an enterprise has a connectivity standard that is suitable for high-performance workstations, servers, and other network-connected systems. Gigabit Ethernet enhances an organization’s current Ethernet network and offers a familiar and relatively low-cost solution for backbone networks. The use of a single protocol throughout the network makes connecting from access to backbone to metropolitan network seamless, resulting in low-latency switching without the need for the packet fragmentation, reassembling, or address translation when reformatting a data stream to another network protocol.

Transition Networks’ Gigabit Ethernet media converters provide the high-performance connectivity for your Ethernet network. Our converters come in a variety of form factors – such as chassis-based slide-in cards, stand-alone converters, and mini converters – allowing you the most flexibility for your network. Our converters also come in a variety of protocols and multi-rate protocols to support legacy networks while preparing for future network upgrades without the need for new equipment.
