To convert Single Mode to Multimode, or extend a Multimode network, Fiber to Fiber Media Converters are the devices to use. They are the ideal solution to connect different fiber types, distances and wavelengths (WDM, CWDM & DWDM) across a variety of topologies and network architectures for longer data transmission distances. There are two types of Fiber Converter to choose from:
SFP to SFP Fiber Mode Converter: To simply interconnect two fiber connections back to back, an SFP to SFP Fiber Mode Converter is generally used. The advantage of this type of solution is that it is protocol independent [supports all protocols including Ethernet, Fibre Channel, ATM/SONET OC-X, SDH STM-X, FDDI, Video, etc…] to address multiple applications.
Ethernet Fiber Mode Converter: In an environment where Ethernet is exclusively used, choosing a Media Converter designed specifically for Ethernet fiber applications is recommended. These Fiber Converters have Ethernet transceivers that regenerate the signal received before passing it along to the other fiber transceiver port. 3R (re-amplify, reshape, and retime) signal regeneration ensures a strong signal across each fiber link to ensure link and data transmission integrity.
Perle only uses high-end components from leading chip manufacturers to ensure product reliability. Perle's advanced implementation of Link Pass-Through includes an onboard processor that continuously monitors the status of the links and sends a notification if the fiber connection is broken or disconnected.
Perle Media Converters are compatible with Cisco switches and routers. As a key component in the reliability and stability of your network, you need dependable Media Converters with seamless interoperability.
Most Media Converter manufacturers do not publish (or make very difficult to find) their MTBF’s. Perle is proud to publish the high MTBF rates on the Hardware Specs for each product. In addition, we provide the best-in-class Lifetime Warranty.
Perle Managed Media Converters support all AAA security services (TACACS+, RADIUS, LDAP, Kerberos, NIS and RSA) used in corporate networks, as well as, SSH/SSL, SNMPv3, Telnet and HTTPS secure management sessions. And, PerleVIEW Central Management Software simplifies the configuration, administration, monitoring and troubleshooting
We have sales and technical support staff around the globe to support you. If you need help choosing the best Media Converter for your application, we provide technical consultations by phone or email. And, even though Perle Fiber Converters are extremely easy to install and configure, post sales support is easy to contact.
