Mini media converters simply convert the electrical network signals from Cat5e or better cabling used in Ethernet local area networks (LAN), to optical signals used in fibre optic based networks. Optical networks are able to transmit their signals further, faster and are immune to interference from outside sources such as mains electric cables.
This makes media converters perfect for extending LANs further than copper Cat5e cabling alone can manage, ideal in large campus networks, retail parks, shopping centres, airports and more.
The Advance Gigabit SFP Mini Media Converter is an ultra-compact, unmanaged converter ideally suited to applications where space is at a premium. It features a single 10/100/1000Base-T RJ45 copper port and a Gigabit SFP slot that accepts any Advance brand Gigabit SFP module. This converter can be specified for almost any application thanks to its flexible input/output options.
The Advance Gigabit SFP Mini Media Converter has a standard 5V power input and is supplied with a UK mains power supply. This media converter is supplied individually and bundled with a singlemode (1310nm), duplex LC SFP module that operates up to 10km over singlemode fibres.
