Nine essential technical points of media converter


How much do you know about media converter? Actually media converter is mainly transmitting 100M or 1000M Ethernet through optical fiber, it also known as optical switch. In short, it converts the electrical signals into optical signal and sends out, at the same time, it converts the optical signal which received into electrical signal. When the Ethernet cable has limitation to cover the area, we have to use fiber optical to extend the transmission distance.

So for media converter, there are nine highlights. Let us elaborate to you.

1. Supports VLAN long packet transmission, compatible with switches which support IEEE802.1Q protocol.

2. Supports SPANNING TREE construction fault-tolerant network.

3. Supports 1000Base-FX optical fiber transmission standard.

4. LED indicators show the operating status. Adopts plug design, easy installation, plug & play, hot plug. Built-in AC220V, DC-48V and external 5V power supply is optional.

5. 10/100/1000Mbps Self-adaptive, MDI/MDI-X auto negotiation.

6. Supports full-duplex and half-duplex network communication, with auto negotiation ability. 

7. Adopts international integrated chipset solution; stable data transmission, strong anti-interference ability; good heat dissipation; MTBF more than 70,000 hours.

8. Supports LINK LOSS remote warning alarm function; the REMOTE function ensures the integrity of transferred packets.

9. Supports IEEE802.3 x and collision base backpressure.
