Fiber Media Converter

The basic concept of Fiber Optical Media Converter
Fiber Optical media converter is an Ethernet transmission media conversion unit that exchanges short-distance twisted-pair electrical signals with long-distance optical signals. It is also called a photoelectric converter in many places.
The Application of Fiber Optical Media Converter
The fiber optical media converter is generally used in the actual network environment where the Ethernet cable cannot be covered and the fiber optical cable must be used to extend the transmission distance.It is usually located at the access layer application of the broadband metropolitan area network, and also plays a huge role in helping to connect the last mile of the optical cable to the metropolitan area network and the outer network.

The Characteristics of Fiber Optic Media Converter
1.The light pass band is very wide. Up to 30T in theory.
2.Transmission can reach tens to hundreds of kilometers without repeater, while copper wire is usually several hundred meters.
3.The optical signal transmission process is not affected by the interference of electric and magnetic fields, and is particularly suitable for long-distance transmission compared to electrical signals.
4.The optical fiber transmission process is not live (safety guarantee), and the temperature range is wide.

The Classification of Fiber Media Converter
1.  Classified by fiber properties:
Single-mode fiber optical media converter: transmission distance between 20 km and 120 km.
Multi-mode fiber optic media converterr: transmission distance is 0 to 5 kilometers.
2.  Classified by work level / rate:
10M, 100M, 1000M Ethernet optical media converter: work at the physical layer.
10 / 100M, 10/100 / 1000M adaptive Ethernet fiber optic media converters: work at the data link layer.
3.  Classification by structure
Desktop (stand-alone) fiber optic media converter
Rack-mountable (modular) fiber optic media converter
4.  Classified by management
Unmanaged Ethernet media converter and managed Ethernet media converter
5. Classify by power type
Built-in power media converter; external power media converter
