Stand-alone Fast Ethernet Media and Rate Converter
10/100Base-TX to 100Base-FX

SBFTF Series



The SBFTF Series is a stand-alone media converter that provides an interface between 10/100Base-TX ports and 100Base-FX ports, allowing users to integrate fiber optic cabling into 10/100 copper environments. Operating at Layer 2, the data link layer, this converter not only converts copper to fiber, it also provides rate conversion allowing legacy 10Base-T copper devices to connect to 100Base-FX fiber.
