Fiber to Ethernet Converters

NASHVILLE, TN—April 1, 2011— Perle Systems, a global provider of advanced fiber to Ethernet and secure device networking solutions, is pleased to announce Ethernet to Fiber Media Converters that support an operating distance of 160Km.

Copper-based Ethernet connections are limited to a data transmission distance of only 100 meters when using unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable. By using a Perle Ethernet to Fiber Media Converter, fiber optic cabling can now be used to extend this link up to 160Km.

“Perle has been providing high quality network connectivity solutions since 1976,” says John Feeney, COO of Perle Systems.  “The continued expansion of our full-featured Media Converter line is a testimonial to our corporate strength and full service commitment to our large customer base around the world.”

With this launch, Perle now offers over 380 Media Converter models to connect 10BaseT, Fast Ethernet and Gigabit to fiber. This enables Perle to offer a solution to connect any fiber and copper cable type and distance. All Perle Media Converters have an on-board microcontroller which deals with error detection and recovery. And, Perle Media Converters only use high-end components to ensure product reliability. Perle backs this up with a Lifetime Warranty to guarantee user satisfaction.
