A media converter connects two different networking protocols or physical connectors. It is very common to interconnect two dissimilar Ethernet cables -- a fiber optic cable to an existing copper one. Industrial media converters support protocols such as Fast and Gigabit Ethernet, WDM, VDSL2, multi-mode and single-mode fiber. A managed media converter has a built-in Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). SNMP enables network administrators to configure, manage, monitor and troubleshoot their network IP devices. A managed media converter with SNMP offers features like web management, port configuration, bandwidth control, Q-in-Q double tag, jumbo frames, flow control, trap management, alarms, traffic statistics, VLAN, remote access and a whole lot more.
Managed media converters are available in 10/100/1000TX Ethernet speeds. Select 100FX, 1000SX/LX and SFP slots for fiber optic ports. Choose from small standalone devices. Or, when high port densities are required, choose plug-in media converter cards that fit into a 19” rack mount chassis. Extended operating temperature is optional on several models. Easy install and configure, our selection is designed to fulfill nearly every managed converter need.
