The 10/100/1000 Media Converter provides an intelligent solution for long distance connections between legacy 10BaseT and 100BaseTX networks and the newer 1000Base Gigabit Ethernet networks. The built-in 10/100/1000 converter enables the fibre cable connection to operate at 1000 Mbps connected to either a 10BaseT, 100BaseTX, or a 1000BaseT network, while remaining completely 1000BaseSX standard-compliant for the fibre optic connection. The 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.
Each Media Converter provides a 10/100/1000BaseT/TX auto-negotiating RJ-45 twisted-pair connector port featuring store-and-forward switching architecture. The Built-in switch does the network segmentation to provide the maximum fibre distance. Auto-MDIX capability on the twisted-pair port allows convenient connection.
