NASHVILLE, TN—September 29, 2010— Perle Systems, a global provider of advanced fiber to Ethernet and secure device networking solutions, today announced the 48vDC model of high density 19-slot Media Converter Chassis System for end-to-end fiber to Ethernet conversion. These new Media Converter Racks are ideal for telecommunication and government applications where they are adding the benefits of fiber to their UTP copper-based network.

“We understand the challenges of Fiber conversion projects,” said John Feeney, COO of Perle Systems. “Telco providers and the government want to future proof their network with additional bandwidth capacity by taking advantage of fiber, without the cost of replacing their existing copper base devices and cabling. Media Converters are the single best option to make this happen.”

The use of chassis-based media converters is a cost effective means of providing fiber connectivity in a large network. By consolidating Ethernet to fiber conversion in a rack mount media converter chassis, various types of fiber links can be brought into a single wiring closet platform. This simplifies deployment and maintenance and also provides a scalable means to grow the network as needed. Perle also offers the option of a managed media converter solution can provide complete secure monitoring and configuration of every media converter in the chassis from a centralized system.

Perle Media Converters offer an extensive choice of full-featured solutions to connect 10BaseT, Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet to fiber. Perle’s Lifetime Warranty, and the use of high-end components guarantees complete user satisfaction. And, all Perle Media Converters have an on-board microcontroller which deals with error detection and recovery.
