Connect Unrelated Cable Types
A Media Converter easily connects two different types of networks, or devices, together. While connecting copper and fiber networks is the common application, Fiber Media Converters also enable users to join together two multimode networks or link multimode to single mode for longer data transmission distances. Media Converters are also the perfect solution to convert and extend various types of data signals throughout your network. If you have two devices or LANs that do not match, due to different speeds, operation types, modes or cable types, you are in the right place.
