Media Converters provide an intelligent solution for fibre optic connectivity where simplicity, low cost, and minimum footprint are the primary considerations. The converters are designed to handle both legacy 10BaseT and 100BaseTX Fast Ethernet devices on their twisted pair port while maintaining 100BaseFX Fast Ethernet transmission on the fibre optic port. Plug-and-play simplicity makes connection easy.
Each Media Converter provides a 10/100BaseT/TX auto-negotiating RJ-45 twisted-pair connector port with Auto-MDIX capability for more convenient connection. Built-in 10/100 switch enables the fibre able connection to operate at 100 Mbps connected to either a 10BaseT or a 100BaseTX network, while remaining completely 100BaseFX standard-compliant. Fibre connection can also operate in full duplex mode whether the RJ-45 port is connected to a full duplex switch or a half-duplex hub.
