Fiber Media Convertersproduct detail
Alston SystemsMedia Converter
Media converters are making the bound from simple conversion devices to intelligent parts of your network. Media converters are used to convert copper to optical-fiber cabling, and vice versa. But they can also be used to switch from multimode to single mode fiber, thus extending the fiber network considerably. They continue to offer a cost-effective means for deploying fiber without requiring to upgrade of switches, routers and other IT infrastructures, and they have enabled IT managers to merge mixed cable types seamlessly and cost-effectively into existing network fabrics.
