Copper to Fiber Media Converters
A copper to fiber media converter transforms the electrical pulses that are used in copper data networks into light pulses used in fiber optic data networks. Copper to fiber converters are used to extend network connections beyond the 100-meter maximum segment length of traditional copper UTP Ethernet cabling. They are also utilized in applications where fiber optic cable is needed to keep EMI/RFI from interfering with the network signal. Media converters are preconfigured with fixed connector options, although the use of Small-Form Factor Pluggable (SFP) transceivers is growing, which allows a media converter to be customized with the right fiber optic connector. Media converters come in three form factors: stand-alone units for one-to-one network connections; high-density chassis-based systems with slide-in media conversion cards, and DIN mountable stand-alone models for industrial applications.
Ethernet copper to fiber media converters are a cost-effective way to leverage fiber-optic cabling without the need to add a costly fiber-optic connection to a switch or router. Media converters help companies to add connection flexibility to their network, or to add non-IT systems to the network (like security cameras). This benefit makes copper to fiber media converters one of the most popular network tools in an enterprise.
Transition Networks’ copper to fiber media converters provide this cost-effective solution. Our media converters come in a variety of form factors such as chassis-based slide-in cards, stand-alones – hardened and enterprise grade – as well as mini form factors. Our converters also support many different protocols such as 10/100/1000Base Ethernet, DS1, DS3, and more. With our copper to fiber converters, you can leverage your existing network and prepare your network for the future. View our copper to fiber media converters below.
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.
